When I first printed out the schedule from the Griz web site, ESPN was put on the Dec 6th, Utah game. It is also on the magnetic schedule and the pocket schedule that I picked up at the Houston game last week. However, my son says they are not advertising showing the Grizz game tomorrow night on ESPN. You don't have it listed either. I am wondering if that is still true, or if that was a mistake when the schedule was made, or if they dropped us.

 

Does anybody know the answer?

But there is an ESPN schedule for Utah @ Memphis on February 12. BTW, that'll be the first of the four Hardwood Classic games where the Grizz will wear the Memphis TAMS uniforms. Can't wait to see that on national TV.

Which games are the Hardwood Classic games?

Hardwood Classic Nights feature your Grizzlies sporting Memphis Tams uniforms from the ABA (1972-74). The first 5,000 fans on Feb. 12 for the Grizzlies vs. Jazz will receive a Memphis Tams “Tam o’Shanter Hat.”

Anyone know how Hollins introduces his new players to the team philosophy, doctrine whatever they call it on such short notice? So far I think the new guys have met our expectations. If anyone knows, could (or has) Speights have practiced with the team before the game or is he going to get thrown in the fire?

why are Greiveis Vasquez, Rudy Fernandez,Ricky Rubio, Pau Gasol, Jose Calderon, Goran Dragic, Sasha Vucicic, Sasha Pavolic, Darko Milicic, Nikola Pekavic, Ersan Ilyasova, vladamir Radmonivic, Danilo Gallinari, Tristan Thompson, Steve Nash, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, Nene, Anderson Varajao, Beno Udrih, Byomobno, Barbosa, Tiago Splitter, Andres Bargnani, Joel Anthony, Boris Diaw, Ian Mahimahi, Zaza Pachulias, Metta World Peace, Omer Asik, Kosta Kofus, Enes Kanter, Omri Casspi, Bellenelli, Biedrins, Gortat, Turkoglu, Timofy Mozgov, Jonas Jerebeko All seemingly not having a problem getting into camp and playing since game 1 and Haddadi still is jerking off???? And to mention Marc gasol missed the preseason. It's not like there is not a precedent for this. Just because Iran is ******? :unsure: Or he the only idiot that went home too long?

As others have explained elsewhere, a combination of the lockout and his status as a free agent this year delayed things. Griz rescinded his qualifying offer, meaning that he had no employment contract in the US and therefore couldn't get a visa. He came over here on a tourist visa to sign a new contract, but has to leave the country again to apply for a new visa (US law won't let you apply for a work visa from the US if I understand it correctly).

 

Hopefully he comes back soon to give Marc some rest.

Hamed's problem likely comes from the fact that he had a domestic violence "issue" last year and the fact that he is from Iran. Sorry, that may not seem fair or whatever, but thats just the way it is.

TNT gets Thursday night games, not ESPN.

Speights will be wearing the number of Ish Smith and prior to that, Marcus Williams. #5

I saw that. Was hoping he'd wear 16 so we'd see a lot of old Pau jerseys with Speights taped over the name.

Well, maybe it's for the best. Always hard bringing in a nother person to the mix. They need to continue where they left off in MINNY. I'm afraid this one will be close if not playing from behind at their home on a Friday night.

Millsap & Jefferson are going to destroy us... Hopefully our backcourt & Rudy can dominate. Hayward is going to regret even showing up.

I don't know about big al, but milsap (god I wish he were on our team) and Derrick Favors will have their way. The worst part of the randolph injury is that MARC has to be so careful on defense.
