Mike Conley Handed Keys to the Offense

It’s his show now in Memphis: What Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley has in front of him now is a new coach dangling a floor general’s favorite carrot: Freedom. One of Griz coach Lionel Hollins’ first acts as Marc Iavaroni’s successor was to pull aside Conley before practice for a short and snappy sidebar. ‘He told me how much freedom I’ll have and what he’s expecting,’ Conley said, smiling. ‘He wants me to put the jets on and push the ball.’ Conley kept smiling. He couldn’t stop, actually.”
