Episode #63: Resting, the Schedule, and Conley's Return

This week on the show, Kevin and Phil talk about:

  • Mike Conley is back, but should he be?
  • Are NBA teams going overboard resting players? Did Memphis get screwed by LeBron James' rest?
  • Should the NBA shorten the schedule to eliminate back-to-backs? (Yes.)
  • Phil thinks the NBA should institute a disabled list or injured reserve, and he's right.
  • The Grizzlies are playing the Celtics Tuesday and the Pistons Wednesday.
  • Will Gasol go back to playing deferentially now that so many guys are returning from injury?
  • Mike D'Antoni, James Harden, and the Houston Rockets are coming to town on Friday for the first time.
  • What Christmas gifts would Kevin and Phil give the Grizzlies?
