Re: “The Iverson Dilemma: Logic Doesn't Live Here Anymore

There would be a story here if Mike Conley was Derrick Rose or even Ricky Rubio. But it's Mike Conley we're talking about. He's played 140 games as a pro, the Grizz have had a sub .400 record with him in the lineup and a 2-23 record vs. the Cavs, Magic, Lakers, Spurs and Nuggets, he's recorded a grand total of 4 double-doubles in his career, scored 20 or more points 9 times and shoots rarely but still poorly (43%). Quite frankly, if it was Tyronne Lue instead of AI Lue would have a legit beef about not starting over Conley. The Grizz have never won a playoff game, much less a playoff series. AI has been the best player on 8 playoff teams and lead those teams to 5 series wins and an eastern conference championship. Those 5 elite teams that Conley has a 2-23 career record against? Last year, in the worst year of his career, AI was the best player on the floor for the Pistons in wins at Lakers, at Spurs, at Denver and at home vs. the Cavs and Magic. This is the first great player the Grizz have ever had. He's got plenty left in the tank. If Hollins wants to have a job next year he'd better win more games than the 22, 24 and 22 Ws this team has had the past 3 seasons and the 1-4 record they have thus far this year, all of which goes on Conley's resume. If they want to win, they've got to play AI.
