“Honestly, we have a unique collection. We’ve been saying it all year, and it’s just been fun. It’s been a fun season.” Comments by Tayos Jones. “It’s something to take advantage of because it’s not usually. It’s by far the team where the players are the closest among those I’ve played with. This is the team that I’ve seen the most fun playing with, and the most fun with since I’ve been in the MLS For professionals. They are an individual group, which is something that should not be taken for granted. It is one of a kind.”
“I’ve never been part of a group like this”

I have never been part of a group like this” Memphis coach thought. “They are the players, the coach, the coaching staff… I want them to taste it all and remember that despite this defeat and the end of our season, it will motivate us to move forward.

The shining we talk about constantly.(…) I’ve never been part of a group, or a group of players and staff with this level of attention. It’s my third season here and this squad deserves it all. We weren’t good enough in the end. It’s basketball, But I am very proud of everyone’s commitment and care to make this season unique.”
“It’s just authentic, it’s natural. It’s like we’re playing with friends and being good together”
Ja Morant in civilian clothes, it was Garen Jackson Jr. who carried the team on his shoulders. He’s been more outspoken than usual, and after an almost empty season, he’s simply happy to be able to give everything he has in a group he loves.
“Obviously the team I enjoyed the most” Reply to a journalist. “Why? Because we kept a lot of players from last season, and there’s a lot of continuity. Everyone knows. And the new one fits in perfectly with what we’ve been doing. The coach has experience now, he’s made his mark, he knows how to coach now. For me, he’s coach of the year. Just look how our season went…At first it was balanced, then we did a little series, we found our rhythm and really had fun! It’s hard to explain, we had a lot of fun together. We didn’t really care about anything else, we only cared what we had, we We had fun together. It was crazy. And it’s just authentic, it’s natural. It’s like we’re playing with friends and being good together.”
