But there's a wrinkle to the next few seasons that's looming, and it might make Grizzlies die-hards root harder for a rebuilding roster to win more, like they did on Monday night against LeBron James's Los Angeles Lakers. Their record this season of 13-19 against teams.500 or above is already an issue when it comes to being a real contender and the only other team with a shot at the postseason with a record worse than that is Minneota, now tied with them in the standings.

Just in case the Lakers needed a refresher course on who they are playing with, the 15-time All-Star made sure to remind them.
