4. Tigers Sign 12 Defensive Players -

The Seattle Seahawks proved that the old maxim that “defense wins championships” can still apply in the modern-day NFL.

But for the University of Memphis, which will start its second season in the American Athletic Conference, defense is more basic than that: It’s what kept the Tigers in games last season, and with a lot of seniors on that team, coach Justin Fuente needed to restock.

5. Time a Friend to Grizz -

Sometimes, the NBA season feels too long. It can stretch on and on like a West Texas highway. Or the Grammy Awards.

But for the Memphis Grizzlies, time has been a friend. And somehow, most of us – maybe all of us – forgot how much time there really was.

6. That’s Entertainment -

It was late in Game 6 of the Grizzlies’ 2013 playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers. Already, FedExForum was abuzz with anticipation. The hated Clippers were about to go down. Grizz, the team’s chest-thumping mascot, scaled a ladder inside the arena and unfurled a banner:

7. State of the Union: Of Pledges, Pleas and Setbacks -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Here's a little secret about the State of the Union address that President Barack Obama will deliver next week: He'll give Congress a long list of requests but few likely will be approved. That's just the reality of a politically divided government.

17. Looking for Last Season’s Grizz to Make Appearance … Now -

The Grizzlies are going out on a four-game road trip that starts with a Friday, Nov. 15, game in Los Angeles against the Lakers. Maybe a change of scenery will do them good. After a 3-5 start to the season that feels even worse than the record, a change of scenery is as good an idea as any.

18. Rudy Gay Makes Memphis Return -

The Toronto Raptors had just finished practice on the main court at FedExForum. Rudy Gay, long-time Grizzly and current Raptor (for now), sat in a folding chair courtside with a bag of ice on each knee. It was Tuesday afternoon, and less than 24 hours after a two-overtime loss at Houston in which Gay had played 49 minutes, put up 37 shots (making 11) and scored 29 points with 10 rebounds.

19. ‘Intertwined’ -

In 2007, the Grizzlies were no longer a novelty in Memphis. They also were no longer a playoff team. Rather, they were a punch line lost in the expansive blue and gray shadow of the University of Memphis and a fast-talking operator/coach named John Calipari.

20. Levien: ‘Real Dialogue’ With Fans Crucial -

Last week in The Daily News, we brought you Part 1 of my interview with Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien.

24. Grit ‘N’ Grind Lives On in Memphis -

With apologies to the Rolling Stones, the Grizzlies’ off-season is its own lesson on the difference between what you want and what you need.

25. Franklin Looks to Honor ‘Grindson’ Nickname -

One of basketball’s enduring lines is that if you’re open, there’s a reason. Does the same hold true for a player once projected as mid-first-round NBA draft choice slipping to No. 41 overall?

Seems like everybody has a list these days, so, in recognition of the 125th anniversary of The Daily News, here’s mine – 125 things that make Memphis easy to swallow – a sort of alphabetical soup to nuts of local flavor.
