The Memphis Grizzlies have a .9% chance to make the playoffs in the Western Conference according to the ESPN Basketball Index Power Ratings. They are projected to finish 33-49. Clearly JB Bickerstaff and the players not being restricted aren't paying attention. Which is what they should be doing by giving maximum effort. The fact remains that strategically losing games seems to be the most logical idea. It's a players game to most. 

Bickerstaff is clearly coaching to be the permanent coach.  Players are playing for contracts and big money.  But should the Grizzlies make Bickerstaff the permanent solution and bring him into the "strategic fold" so-to-speak? It's an interesting discussion at this point in the season.

Tonight the Memphis Grizzlies take on the struggling San Antonio Spurs without Kawhi Leonard at FedExForum.

Live Game Coverage tonight begins at 6:00 p.m. on 92.9 FM ESPN (680AM).

AUDIO: Gary Parrish & Geoff Calkins discussed "tanking" and whether the Grizzlies should make Bickerstaff the full-time coach (past this season).
