The Grizzlies big man needed just one emoji and two words, but you can clearly feel how hyped his reaction is to this looming matchup. There’s clearly some bad blood between Memphis and Golden State, and we all can’t wait for these two sides to face off again next season.
The Warriors, however, have the clear upper hand here. After all, they are the defending champs, and they went through Morant and Co. to get to the title. You can be sure that the Grizzlies are going to be keeping this in mind all summer long and up and until they meet on the court again. Make no mistake about it, Memphis players have already marked their calendars for their games against the Warriors next season. Metaphorically speaking, of course, since the NBA has yet to release the schedule.
