The Core 4 Podcast: Defense

Big “Core 4” here, as I’m joined with newly-promoted Senior Staff Writer Shawn Coleman to talk about the Memphis Grizzlies on the defensive end.

Yes, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke are fascinating, but what about everyone else? What could Kyle Anderson do in this system? Could Bruno Caboclo become a 5-position defender? Who are some under-the-radar players that could evolve into good defenders?

Shawn and I talk about:

  • The defensive potential of Bruno Caboclo
  • Where Kyle Anderson fits on both ends of the court
  • Why Tyus Jones’ defense is underrated and could be an asset for the Grizzlies
  • If Jonas Valanciunas will actually get phased out of games in clutch time.

Stay tuned with all things with the Grizzly Bear Blues Podcast Network. Shawn’s “3andD” podcast will join the network alongside GBB Live and The Core 4. In addition, we will have some new shoes coming in the next couple months.

It’s an exciting time to be a Grizzlies fan. Stick with GBB for all things Grizzlies.
