A lot of things will be different at FedExForum this year. There’s that big GINORMOUS scoreboard the team installed; there’s the event level renovations which drastically reconfigured the Grizzlies’ locker room, weight room and media areas.

But the main thing you notice on this 2017 Media Day is who’s NOT there: Zach Randolph, Tony Allen and to an extent, Vince Carter. Everything feels different, nobody knows exactly what to expect — and that leads to a sense of excitement.

Starting today, and running through the rest of the week, we here at TSDMemphis.com are getting you ready for the new grind with unedited video from the Grizzlies’ media day. Today, we’re getting you started with Grizzlies’ GM Chris Wallace (who isn’t conceding that the Grizzlies aren’t a playoff team) and Head Coach David Fizdale (who had some pointed words about President Trump and his recent rants about athlete protests). Check it out!
