    Beg L.H.

    Isn't that exactly what we have right now?
  2. I predict Parsons will play towards the end of the season. According to him, the knee will fell great. He'll go into the offseason on a positive note, come to training camp next year ready to go in the last year of his deal. He'll look good the first week or two, then the soreness will return and he'll be done.

    March toward 50 wins - grizzlies edition

    For those of us that *may* have visited a Mississippi sportsbook, 35 is the magic number.

    Where's Scooter

    He won the award as the 'only poster I've ever put on ignore'.
  5. You know, technically, all our days are numbered since the day we're born.

    Grizz to Seattle?

    Why do people continually overlook the contractual 'right of first refusal' our local owners have to buy Pera out should he decide to sell or move the team? That price would be what Pera has put in the team since his purchase, not some super high price if a Saudi prince wants to buy. The local owners already have 47% of the team. We don't know if they bought more since Pera had to raise many millions to buy out Strauss and Kaplan. I would like to know what the new percentages of ownership are. Maybe someday Pera will tell us. As for Windhorst, since LeBron left, he's gone to pretty much invisible and irrelevant covering a bad NBA team in a market nobody cares about nationally now. He's just another writer who refuses to do his homework on the Grizzlies and spouts the usual nonfactual rhetoric the other NBA writers do. As for Seattle, this talk is only natural since they had the first NBA game (preseason) in their city last night since the Sonics left. It may be a few years but the NBA is drooling over what they could get in expansion fees for a team there.

    Preseason basketball thread

    Yeah, here in Memphis on DirecTv ch 674 I was getting the pregame show tonight on the Rockets channel. Of course at 7 the channel went black. Geez. Territorial restrictions shouldn't be in place for freaking exhibition preseason games. It's not like they were broadcasting the secret ingredients to Memphis award winning Huey Burgers or Jack Pirtles chicken.

    Misery Index

    Great article. Actually semi-respectful from ESPN. I've always felt pretty solid also. Lot's of enthusiasm going into the season.

    Ron Tillery...

    Now closing in on two months since we've heard from Tillery. It's obviously pretty serious whatever's going on. Good luck Ron, wherever you are.

    Ron Tillery...

    Has Ron quit? It's odd we haven't heard anything from him in weeks.

    Ron Tillery...

    I agree. Ron has been here since day one. He's been slinging darts ever since. When he used to be on the radio years ago he also constantly threw shade at the University of Memphis and (at the time) the highly ranked hoops program. Not a way to win fans for the paper. He probably needs a fresh start somewhere else. And we sure need a breath of fresh air here for the CA. The Tigers writer, Mark Giannotto did a very good job in Tillery's absence.
  12. Plus the Rockets have Memphian Tarik Black on the team. His high fives as players come off the floor are vastly underrated!

    Wagner could be the next Nowitzki. Roll the dice and reach for greatness in the 2nd round

    With The 32nd Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Moritz Wagner, 6'11" deadeye shooter from Michigan.
  15. He definitely deserves a chance after what the front office put him through this past season. Glad to see this happening.
