Default Memphis Grizzlies this year's 2004 Detroit Pistons

?

Incredible post play and defensive team.. Im just curious do they have the firepower on the wing to be a championship team.

hard to say. But when they have lot of weapons in the low post, it tends to make the perimeter player's lives alot easier.

But a big difference consists in the Grizzlies' lack of a clutch player, of a scorer who is able to create own shots and take responsibility of scoring in close games... That Pistons team had a great clutch performer in Billups, who made a lot of clutch plays throughout their post season runs.

Who's their Chauncey Billups?

Forget this grit n' grind garbage. The 2004 Pistons were tough as hell. This team doesn't know what that is, with Marc Gasol doing the head jerk every time he runs into a body while driving in, Tony Allen and Conley diving on every bit of contact, so on so forth.

Zach Randolph is tough. I don't like him just because of his past and his rivalry but he's a tough player and I respect him. If only the others on his team were that kind of tough instead of cheap hooks, offensive fouls, diving and falling on the floor pretending they were tripped, complaining about calls while they're shooting, etc.

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way saying the Clippers are angels comparatively, honestly me being a Clipper fan I can fully admit that the reason these Clippers this year couldn't focus and got destroyed in the playoffs was because they would complain about calls instead of playing defense. And they would run back on offense and jump into players expecting fouls, complaining "you called that on the other end, wtf ref?!?!". That being said, I still don't think that Memphis is that same type of "do what we want, advance through all rounds and fck all the teams on our way" attitude those Pistons had.

Every person on the team is inferior.

But if Scott Brooks understands that probably the only PG on his roster who can't guard Conely (but can probably do a job on Tony Allen) is Derek Fisher, OKC will have a good chance to take the series. Same with Durant - has to recognize that Prince is very limited offensively and use his length to double and close out.

funny all the NYC and OKC fans are the ones doubting. OKC getting beat this series, and NYC wont sniff the finals.

also agree with the topic kinda, a lot of differences but definitely a dark horse teams that just works.
