It's aspiring to have dreams of bring a title(s) to the team you have played for a long time. The issue in play is does the reality and current roster on hand will be enough to bring a title to Memphis? Sorry to say the answer is no. The Grit-N-Grind Era is over. The team are in search of a new identity. There are a lot of questions and issues about this team that will be answer once the season begins in a week in a half. Also with the Western Conference being stacked up as is, the Grizzlies will have one hell of a gauntlet to fight through in order to reach the top of the NBA mountain and stake their first place as champions.

if only we were in the east, we could contender to get to the conference final. That if we dont cross with the cavs.

Nowadays with superteams with 3-4 all stars, it is close to imposible to win a Title with the current roster.

we are contending to upset a better team than us IF we make it to the postseason. My guess is that we will. To try to upset the Rockets or the spurs in the first round is our bigger goal.

This team can give another team a run for their money. They will need to stay healthy and acquire a bit more help to contend with the best in the west. This year will test the Grizzlies without question.

We clearly have no shot at a title unless Marc becomes t Dirk in his championship run. We would need a remarkable level of offensive efficiency and three point shooting. With that said, we have accumulated some serious assets who were definitely undervalued around league. We have a few supporting cast mates but need to bring in solid free agents that fit our new style. Right now, we are a team with talent, but no true identity.
