This Grizzlies season promo video is pretty darn good

Well done.

The line that hope has been replaced by expectations in Memphis hits the nail on the head — they reached the Western Conference Finals last season and fans now expect that or more.

And that is going to be hard to do for a few reasons. For one, I don’t think Memphis really addressed the need for more consistent outside shooting (sorry but I don’t see Mike Miller as healthy all season and guys like Nick Calathes have a lot to prove). Second, the West is going to be a tougher place: Oklahoma City gets Russell Westbrook back, the Clippers added some real shooters and talent (plus upgraded at coach), and the Spurs are not going anywhere.

Still, the expectations are there in Memphis. It’s going to be an interesting season.

    Having a really good team is a lot of fun. Here’s hoping for another great season.

    It certainly is! It’s fun and I hope it keeps going for as long as possible! Also saw the Grizz have been voted the top sports team and that’s great too.

    Here’s what a lot of you grizzly fans and other fans in general don’t get by not having a superstar like the grizzlies… you will never win this way.

    While the grizzlies are a great team with great individuals, the team lacks a superstar- a go to person to just score when needed quickly. they dont have that this is the reason why the grizzlies will NEVER win a championship because of it.

    I do expect them to do great this season and make it to second round of the playoffs but thats about it and anyone else that thinks they would actually win would be a grizzlies fan.

    I have no ties to the Grizzlies but now I’m inspired. Cool video.
