Posted October 05, 2018 07:12:12 Paul Millsas signing with the Memphis Grizzles is one hell of a move for the franchise.
The two were drafted in the second round of the 2016 NBA draft, and spent the first three seasons together playing for their respective hometown teams, the New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies made it to the NBA Finals in 2019, and they followed that up by making the playoffs in 2019-20.
Now, two years later, the two have formed a friendship, with the two being the subject of plenty of memes and memes in recent years.
When the Grizzlies signed Millsap, they received a lot of backlash.
The team was criticized for being short on talent and for not having enough talent to make the playoffs.
This year, Millsap had a breakout season, averaging 17.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game.
He also shot 46.5% from the field, while shooting 45.4% from three-point range.
He made the All-NBA Second Team as a rookie, and was also named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year.
As a result of this success, the Grizzlies selected Millsap with the sixth overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft.
He played just 13 games in his rookie season, and only averaged 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.4 steals per game as a sophomore.
However, this season, Millsaps season has been better, averaging 18.4, 9.8, and 4.4 per game, respectively.
He has also become one of Memphis’ most consistent offensive players, averaging 10.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 3.6 steals, and 3.4 blocks per game this season.
Millsap is also currently averaging just under 15 points per game in the regular season, making him the team’s most efficient player.
While this might not sound like much, it is actually quite a significant number for a player of Millsap’s size.
Millsaps assists per 48 minutes (APG) has improved every season since his rookie year, rising from 3.5 per game to 4.6 per game and hitting 12.3 this year.
He currently ranks fourth in the NBA in assists per 100 possessions, behind only James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and LeBron James.
It is no wonder then that Millsap has become one the most well-rounded players in the league.
The following are some of the best examples of Millsaps meme-ability.
Millsas meme-able stat line is amazing.
He averages 14.6 minutes per game on average, which is the best per game average in the entire league.
Millsa has shot an impressive 46.4 percent from the floor, but only 4.3 percent from three point range.
His assist rate has also been very solid, as he is the league leader in that stat.
Millss stat line as a defensive player is just crazy.
Mills has blocked over 40% of opponents attempts in just one of his four seasons with the Grizzlies, and his defensive rating is the third highest in the game behind LeBron James and Dwight Howard.
Mills’ nickname is “The Chimp,” and his ability to play the game of basketball with his heart and his mind is something that is always appreciated.
Mills is the team mascot for the Memphis city of Memphis.
The Memphis mascot is a cat, which can be seen hanging out on the court on the sidelines of the Grizzlies home games.
