Offensive balance is for suckers (some facts)

FACT: Lionel Hollins has coached 19 games for the Grizzlies

FACT: The Grizzlies are 5-14 in those games

FACT: When O.J. Mayo leads the team in FG's attempted, they are 4-4 (Hollins era)

FACT: When anyone else leads the team in FG's attempted, they are 1-10 (Hollins era)

FACT: That one win was when Conley did not play and Rudy Gay had a season-high in pts.

FACT: Good teams get the ball in the hands of their best player, and the Grizzlies are actually respectable under Hollins when they do too

FACT: This research is not real pretty. Therefore, these statistics, or any that put into question the coaching acumen of Coach Hollins, will not be allowed in the Commercial Appeal (per policy)
