MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff believes he can make the franchise competitive immediately with a quick recovery from a 60-loss season.
That's what his boss expects as well.
"We're going into it with an optimistic view and we're planning on success," Bickerstaff said Wednesday, one day after having the interim tag removed from his title . "We're planning on a playoff run. There's no doubt about it."
