Are the Grizzlies Ready to Take the Next Step?

I will admit it; I totally missed the boat on the Grizzlies last season.  I thought the Zach Randolph trade would terrorize the team.  Instead, Memphis was one of the pleasant surprised in the NBA even though they were still ten games back of the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference.  Can they build off last year’s performance or will they take a step backwards?

NBA Power Rankings: #26 Memphis Grizzlies

We are only a month and a half away from the start of the NBA season.  So why not start our 2009-2010 team previews?  Every weekday for the next six weeks, I will be revealing my pre-season Power Rankings in reverse order from #30 to my prediction for winning the NBA title.

The Memphis Grizzlies find themselves in a similar position from years past; near the bottom of the league.  Their general manager is an absolute moron and it is  baffling how he still has a job.  Too harsh?  I don’t think so.  The additions of Zach Randolph and Allen Iverson should at least provide Memphis with a season long drama to follow.  Oh yeah, they will be playing basketball too.
