Entering Wednesday, Mike Conley needed seven points to pass longtime Memphis center Marc Gasol to become the Grizzlies’ all-time leading scorer. The veteran guard was already the leader in 3-pointers, assists, steals and games played.
Memphis drafted Conley with the fourth overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft out of Ohio State University. The lefty has never made an All-Star team, but that’s only because he plays in the Western Conference, where there are so many elite guards.
Head coaches around the league always call Conley one of the most underrated players in the NBA. He’s a consummate professional and one of the best floor generals in the league.
This season for the Grizzlies, Conley is averaging 20.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game while shooting 43.6 percent from the field, 36.6 percent from beyond the arc and 84.8 percent from the free-throw line.
