There has been a lot of discussions lately about Memphis Grizzlies forward Josh Jackson who is currently on assignment with the Memphis Hustle in the G-League.

There is a twenty-year-old that has replaced the role of Marc Gasol in the Grizzlies locker room. For years Gasol was the final voice of the night. He'd give you all of the quotes that you needed as he gave his assessment of the good and the bad. He was the thermometer of the locker room. Marc's voice was the one that you waited late for - the one that you waited to get dressed so that he could give his State of the Union address. That distinction has been handed over to Jaren Jackson Jr. - a twenty-year-old that has only played in 77 games heading into Wednesday's matchup against the Bulls.
Veteran Memphis Grizzlies forward Solomon Hill spoke in the locker room after the team's tough home loss, 117-104, against the Indiana Pacers. Hill would finish with 22 points. He would speak on how his young team constantly has to learn from their mistakes and how the Pacers game is one that they can definitely learn from. He would praise Coach Taylor Jenkins for standing up for Jaren Jackson Jr. after a puzzling foul call as well. The Grizzlies have a 10-day road trip ahead and he would share his thoughts on how to prepare for that as well.
