The Memphis Grizzlies have been playing some good basketball this week. They beat the Wizards last night and have won 3 of their last 4. They have had a pretty rough season so this week has been pretty exciting. It looks like they are starting to actually play like a team and Run GMC has been on fire. Run GMC?
The Warriors in the late 80's and early 90's were carried on the shoulders of Run TMC (Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin). Their run and gun style of basketball brought the team success and injected the NBA with excitement. I think enough time has passed and I can rip off the Run TMC name and give it to my Grizzlies. Even though the Memphis Grizzlies have had a bad season, Run GMC (Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo, and Mike Conley) have shown what they are capable of. Rudy Gay has been playing like an All-Star, Mayo is making his case for Rookie of the Year, and Conley is proving that he can be an efficient point guard. They have been playing great recently and the future is looking brighter. I think that the Run GMC Grizzlies are a player away from being back in the playoffs. Blake Griffin or Hasheem Thabeet would definitely provide that push for the playoffs.
I'm going to leave you with a good mix of Bryant Reeves highlights. Just kidding. Enjoy some amazing plays from Rudy Gay.
