Mike Conley Jr. is featured on the regional cover of Sports Illustrated this week.
SI has a behind-the-scenes look at Conley Jr. and the Grizzlies.
The magazine says senior writer Lee Jenkins spent seven days with the Geizz.
SI reports this is the first cover for the Grizzlies.
Jenkins writes, “The Grizzlies are heavyweights, not welterweights, an antidote to the go-go teams of the Western Conference and a throwback to the days when large men stood on the block with their backs to the basket.”
