So what about that situation? That team? There are many in Memphis that refuse to believe Conley could go anywhere. He was instrumental in recruiting Marc Gasol to return last summer and there are those that believe he would never have pushed so hard if he was planning on exiting a year later. “Me and Marc, he knows if I call him two times in two weeks and he is in Spain, that’s a lot,” Conley said. “That’s something very important to me. I stayed in contact, checking in on him. When it came down to it, I told him ‘We’re not going anywhere if you’re not here.’ I hoped he would make the right decision, and he did.” Said Gasol, “Mike [being in Memphis] was big. I will go through any type of wall for that guy.”
Storyline: Mike Conley Free Agency
Suddenly, everybody was talking about the Grizzlies, their age and their style and the security of their coach. There is no sense sounding alarms after eight games—a November tradition in the NBA—except the Grizzlies amplified much of the noise themselves. “I think it’s between the ears,” Conley says. “Our focus, our effort, the pride we play with, as opposed to Xs and O’s.” Amid such self-reflection, the Grizz delivered their best game of the young season Monday night, even though it resulted in another loss. Facing the Clippers, their familiar playoff adversary, they may have rediscovered a piece of their old selves. They held L.A. to 94 points. They piled up 11 steals. Randolph stripped Chris Paul and then broke down the sequence with courtside fans. “That felt like…us,” Conley said.
