Bickerstaff: Beyond Grit

Linked below is a good video on the Memphis Grizzlies summer league mini-camp as the coaching staff prepares the team for Utah and Las Vegas. J.B. Bickerstaff took over as the Grizzlies interim head coach after David Fizdale was fired 19 games into last season. Memphis ultimately made the decision to retain Bickerstaff. This was the first time Bickerstaff has been hired as head coach without an interim tag. He finished the 2015-16 season as the interim coach in Houston after Kevin McHale was fired, and he went 37-34 with the Rockets. As you can see in the video, Bickerstaff is busy at work implementing his culture and offensive/defensive systems. There are a ton of good nuggets in this video (8 minutes) for coaches to pull.
