    Memphis Grizzlies at Indiana Pacers

    Just ran into Chris Wallace at Kroger. Told him I'm looking forward to the game tonight.

    Marc Gasol Summer Body Fat Check

    It's like something JJJ mentioned. He was asked about what he had been doing with his teammates and replied that it was different from college because guys were busy doing things with their kids. You get older, and things change. You don't decide to hit the club then the drive thru afterwards for midnight snacks. You go home to read bedtime stories to your kids. You go to bed earlier so you can take them to school in the morning. Its called growing up.

    Finally, the boards are back!

    If this was the first time this had happened, I might agree with you, but as this type of interruption has happened before each of the last two seasons, I think something else is occurring. As you point out, the Grizzlies Boards are the only fan boards that are actually tied to a team's NBA website. The others are independent entities. I suspect that changes to the Boards are not as simple as the IT structure is not completely controlled by the Grizzlies organization. I'm an administrator on a forum bulletin board run by my employer that uses the mybb.com platform just like the Boards does. Just clearing out spambot applications to join that board was next to impossible until we shutdown external registration and limited access to internal registration only. Changing that took the server mechanic at our company two weeks as we had to redo all of the employee accounts after mass deleting to clear the spam. So, I think someone went to make a change like the survey post that they thought would go through fine after testing on a test server, but fried the actual production server controlled by the NBA website. It then took time to restore everything, but with the boards down, there was no way to explain what going on.

    I haven't checked if the IP address is still the same, but as the URL is changed, it looks like we got moved to a new server. And I expect there will be some format changes over the next few weeks as we head into the preseason and regular season.

    Parsons Out for Rest of '17-'18 Season

    The more I look at the player acquisitions made in 2016 and 2017, the more I'm convinced that it was the front office going out and getting the toys that the bright new shiny head coach wanted rather than the players that they would have normally gone after. I remember that it was Fiz that was there visiting Chandler the day free agency started, not Chris Wallace. I pretty sure there was a Twitter picture of the two that day as the deal broke. I was expecting Wallace to go after Nicholas Batum or Trevor Ariza, not Parsons. They would have meshed better with the existing lineup. Chandler was a nod to offense, not GnG attitude, which was more a Fiz style move.

    There goes your Gasol-Conley-Evans core

    It's relative. The Union store is older, meaning the smoker has more of a developed atmosphere. A little more nuanced flavor.
  13. Vegas doesn't make projections for a living based upon being correct. Vegas makes projections to get people to make bets, and changes the projections whenever the action gets too one-sided. Bets are based upon public perception, not upon a projected reality, which is why betting the over on the season wins by the Grizzlies had been a winner for eight seasons prior to last year.

    I'm still partial to Tops on Union across from Methodist Hospital.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    I wouldn't necessarily say that. But I will say all of the acquisitions besides Parsons made for Fizdale are now gone.
