On the Grizzlies, after coach Hubie Brown retired last Thursday:
"Whoever they hire may soon realize that this team overachieved to win 50 games last year without a dominant star. The key decisions will involve rotation and tempo. Are they going to keep going 10 deep the way Hubie did? If so, the new coach may want to run more to take pressure off their mediocre centers and to get more out of Pau Gasol, who has looked passive this season. But that's not an easy solution either; Hubie probably would have gone with a faster style if he'd thought Jason Williams could play under control while pushing the ball."
