Episode #43: Marc Gasol Injury? Don’t Panic

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

  • Marc Gasol broke his foot in Monday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers
  • With Gasol out, maybe for the rest of the year, should the Grizzlies blow it up and start the rebuilding process?
  • Now that Gasol is injured, does Ryan Hollins get signed for the year?
  • Why did the Grizzlies fall apart down the stretch against Portland after such a close game?
  • Is it going to be better to give up the pick to Denver this year or next year? Do they have to do that now?
  • Kevin says the plan should be to bring in young players, have a down year next year and reload, but avoid “blowing it up” and being bad for several years.
  • Do the Grizzlies need to evaluate whether Dave Joerger is the coach they want for the future?
  • What if the Grizzlies brought in Meyers Leonard this summer? Would he be a good fit?
