4. Grizz Tip Off Season to Begin Pursuit of Another Playoffs Run -

The Memphis Grizzlies had just endured a 22-60 season, a season so bad that coach Mike Fratello had been fired right after Christmas.

We hope that Mike Conley’s mask is in a museum somewhere, never to be needed again.

Two of the three town centers envisioned by Memphis Mayor A C Wharton are going in different directions with a recent court ruling and an auction.

It went six games, Golden State winning 105-97 in Cleveland to give the Warriors their first NBA championship in 40 years, Andre Iguodala winning the series MVP, and LeBron James saying he didn’t know if this loss hurt more than his three others in the NBA Finals.

18. Reality Change -

The Memphis Grizzlies take and make fewer 3-point shots than any team in the NBA not named the Minnesota Timberwolves.

20. Grizz Suffer ‘Beat Down’ as LBJ and Cavs Continue to Step Up -

The Cleveland Cavaliers were on a three-game winning streak. The Memphis Grizzlies were on a three-game winning streak. They were each the No. 2 seed in their respective conferences.

But it was important, the game seeming to hold value beyond the single win (which went to the Grizzlies) or the one loss (which went to the Houston Rockets).

28. Grizzlies Find Respect Hard to Come By -

Perhaps it was a just coincidence. On the day that the results of the annual NBA General Managers’ survey were announced, ESPN was in Memphis for its only scheduled visit of the season.

Or perhaps this was no coincidence at all.

29. Time is Now -

For now, the Memphis Grizzlies’ window of opportunity is open.

With four straight playoff appearances in the immediate past, there is no reason to believe the Grizzlies won’t get there again.

37. LeBron’s Contract: Best Bargain in Sports -

The money can drive you crazy, if you let it. Each day in Memphis we’re reading about “blue flu” and the city’s ongoing financial crisis.

44. Avoiding Heartache -

The Grizzlies had just watched the Golden State Warriors score 14 straight points to turn a seven-point deficit into a 100-93 victory.

49. Grizz Look at Final 30 With Hope for Strong Finish -

As the Grizzlies took their leave from FedExForum, having won their last home game before the NBA All-Star break, forward James Johnson looked toward the next night’s game at Orlando.

But the 371,256 voters is fewer than 2008 when more than 400,000 Shelby County voters cast ballots.

74. The Magic Of Mental Images -

As it turns out, it appears that your brain does not know the difference in real or imagined events. That’s why some golfers practice by imagining golf shots, some tennis players practice by imagining tennis shots and other athletes practice by imagining doing whatever their chosen sport requires them to do well.

Rollin Kocsis has been promoted to curator of Gallery Fifty Six located at 2256 Central Ave.

Hometown: South Bend, Ind.
Work Experience:
As an art teacher for Memphis City Schools for 38 years, I taught art classes to grades 7 through 12 at Gragg High School, Lincoln Junior High, Gragg Alternative High School, Overton Creative and Performing Arts High School, Corry Junior High and Westwood Junior and Senior High School.
Favorite quote:
“As you think so shall you become.” – James Allen
What drew you to Gallery Fifty Six?
I had been looking for a gallery to represent me, and I would drive by Gallery Fifty Six every day on the way home from teaching. I noticed that work was being done to transform the interior into a sophisticated, fine-art gallery, and I was impressed with the results. I decided to present my work to them, and I was accepted as a gallery artist. As time went on, I became the assistant curator and was recently promoted to curator.
As curator, what will your job entail?
My job as curator will be to schedule and hang shows; manage the gallery; design printed materials; seek new artists; advise customers and sell art; maintain the mailing list; work with public relations; and promote the gallery.
What do you most enjoy about painting?
I love the process of creation, first of all. I love working with paint and colors. I get enjoyment out of making something that other people will like, too. It gives me great satisfaction to sell a painting, knowing that someone thought enough of my work to buy it.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments?
Becoming curator of Gallery Fifty Six has definitely been one of my greatest professional accomplishments. In addition, last year marked a great year for me when an art dealer from New York purchased nine of my paintings. I also won “Best in Show” in the Memphis Arts in the Park Senior Juried Exhibition and also in the Mid-South Teachers Juried Art Exhibition at The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.
