Well the Grizz did indeed shock the Spurs.

Spurs done in 1st round as I predicted.

Zach Randolph is the Charles Barkley of this generation of NBA players. Without the trash talking.

Well Congratulations to the Grizzlies without question the biggest story of these young playoffs. The question remains as it has throughout this series, why is a number 8 seed having its way with the number one seed, the San Antoino Spurs. A team who has 4 rings since 1999. The last one coming in 2007 when they swept the Cavaliers 4-0. My theory is that the Spurs are an aging veteran team, who expended alot of energy trying to maintain the best record in the NBA. Once the playoffs begin, it took its toll physically and mentally. They were drained. It was evident throughout this series that they just couldnt keep up with the more energetic, younger, hungrier Grizzlies.

One thing about the Grizz is that they have two of the better perimeter defenders in the league with Allen and Battier. Hopefully, Durant and Westbrook can step it up. Can you imagine how scary the Grizz would be if they had Rudy Gay healthy and playing?

It's good to see that Zach has (in a matter of speaking) been reborn. He was a cast off from a few teams but in Memphis he has really settled in and made them a force and one that can build around him.

(re: Barkley comparison) I do see it. Wide-body, tenacious competitor, good around the rim but can hit the open jumper, not afraid to take the "big shot"...a double-double machine.

I watched CB since early in his freshman year at Auburn, and see the similarity strongly - so we will have to agree to respectfully disagree on this.

I don't see the Barkley comparisons to be honest. Barkley was a 6'4 power forward who could rebound amongst the trees, take the ball coast to coast, and unlike Randolph was an explosive leaper( despite his rounded frame).

Randolph has a very unorthodox scoring style which makes him hard to guard, being a lefty probably doesn't hurt either down in the post....But honestly I grew up watching Sir Charles, one of my all-time favorites. Their games are really quite different....
