It's easy to forget about the Memphis Grizzlies because, well, they play in Memphis. Have you ever been to Memphis? It's like Kansas City, but with drive-by shootings. Anyway, sleep on the Grizz no more because they might be the best team in the Western Conference.
They're currently tied for first with the San Antonio Spurs and Zach Randolph is playing like he has plans of becoming the most bloated MVP since Charles Barkley. The antagonizing big man is fifth in the NBA in rebounding and, provided he doesn't tear his Achilles fighting an opposing player in the locker room, stands to have his healthiest season in years.
