Memphis’ coach Taylor Jenkins opens up possible NBA formats when the season resumes
The Memphis Grizzlies have no particular preference for an NBA season return formula. From the various formats the association will choose to continue playing, it is unclear what the grizzlies would prefer or what would be of most use to them.
“The way I look at it is the NBA’s decision. I don’t envy any of those decisions.” Jenkins said Monday in an interview on NBATVabout Forbes.com. “[They’re] obviously trying to get the fairest result, which is likely to be the case for all 30 teams. “
For the head coach of the Grizzlies, concentrating on the moment is the most important aspect for his team, regardless of the game format.
“I want them to focus on not worrying about whether it’s a play-in tournament or a group game,” continued Jenkins. “As long as we got a shot, we played for it in the last month and a half of the season when the season was stopped.” Even though we are separate, we are talking about staying together and focusing only on what we can control. Whatever the board of governors, the players’ association and the league office ultimately make their decision, we are ready to roll. “
The Memphis Grizzlies prevailed in the Western Conference playoff battle before the season came to an unprecedented “stop” due to the coronavirus pandemic. Memphis had the 8th best record in the West with 3.5 games ahead of the New Orleans Pelicans.
