    The Grizzlies left Memphis on an eleven game win streak, and return on a five game losing streak.

We discuss bets including:

    Grizzlies -9

    O/U 224

    Ja O/U 9.5 assists

    JJJ O/U 2.5 blocks

    Grizzlies 1Q -3

    The Core 4: Shannon Sharpe is Corny

    The Core 4: Shannon Sharpe is Corny

    The Core 4 makes their weekly appearance coming off of the Memphis Grizzlies' three-game losing streak. Dave opens the show by asking if this furthers the concern of the Grizzlies winning big games on the road. Matt gives his two takeaways for why Memphis struggled over the road stretch.
    For Xavier's X & O's, he breaks down why he believes the Grizzlies continue to struggle away from FedEx Forum. The defense has not been as tight and the shooting struggles have put them behind early. Dave worries about the bench unit and if a change needs to be made in the starting lineup.
    In Embrace Debate, the C4 Boys cover the Shannon Sharpe incident from Friday night. Sharpe started what turned into a shouting match that involved not only Ja Morant but his father as well. The Grizzlies were unable to use this as motivation to close out the Lakers and Dave wonders if it had lasting effects in the next two games.
    The guys put on the GM hats in Kleiman Corner to break down the rookie class. Matt lists the rookies that are contributing now and will contribute later that Memphis missed out on. Dave wonders if David Roddy has too much responsibility too soon. Xavier discusses viable trade targets.
    To close the show the guys give out some awards at the Trophy Case. Dave awards the entire Grizzlies team. Matt gives out the first ever "Luka Doncic Award for Playing Yourself into Shape" and Xavier breaks down Ziaire Williams' full-court heave.

GBB!!!

Good stuff guys! I also love reading the content on SB

If you don’t care…

If you don’t care about preseason, why should we listen to anything you have to say on how the team looks? This podcast is consistently nitpicky and wrong. Last year it was bad Taylor Jenkins and Ziaire takes. Over the summer, it was bad Santi takes... a rookie who played mostly in garbage time without consistent minutes or an established role. (Hint: it’s hard to develop without consistent minutes or an established role…especially if you’re a rookie.) I really tried to give these guys a chance, but I hear bad takes like this at the barbershop. I expect more thoughtful analysis fron someone using a platform like this.

The best

Y’all are literally the best podcast ever. I found y’all when I started as a grizzlies fan, not knowing much about them and Joe Mullinax basically brainwashed my opinion on Memphis during the grit n grind era. Since the core 4 started I don’t think I’ve missed an episode. Parker Fleming your the best person in sports media, and that includes all of espn. Y’all made me realize I want to work in sports media, I have a blog (and a podcast on the way) but I’m not using this to plug my stuff. Just telling y’all you guys are great and keep it up.

Also one thing. Joe used to joke “if you say something and it gets 5 likes on Twitter I’ll do it” but instead of Twitter I’m gonna ask here:

Can y’all go back to the original core 4? Parker in the long view is great but core 4 was better than anything I ever listened to, or anything on espn
