Hollins: I Want to See Aggresive Play From Lopez



Given (Brook) Lopez’s deficiencies and (Grizzlies Coach Lionel) Hollins’ penchant for speaking his mind publicly, there was going to produce some fireworks. That was evident a week into training camp, when Hollins called out Lopez for throwing lackadaisical passes, and then said he expected to see growth from Lopez.

“Making Brook a better basketball player is a priority,” Hollins said after that practice. “Being tougher, being more aggressive, thinking that every time the play is for him, but also being a guy that’s passing the ball to his open teammates.

“Just being more aggressive, being tougher, rebounding better … just being a force in the paint. When you’re 7-foot, 260, I’d like for him to be a force, but I would like all of our big guys to play tougher, more aggressive.”
