4. Grizzlies Hope Upheaval Leads to Draft Unity -

MEMPHIS (AP) – The Memphis Grizzlies hope the recent tumultuous turnover in their front office translates into a solid, unified draft Thursday night.

5. Teeing Off -

Everyone was in a good mood. Not just normally affable Grizzlies players Mike Conley and Mike Miller, but former Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins and Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Jim Brown, a couple of hard-nosed throwback types.

6. Lots of Questions Remain Unanswered in Grizz Nation -

We’re now going on two weeks since this whole WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE GRIZZLIES? saga started.

So, what do we actually know?

We know that Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera fired team CEO Jason Levien and player personnel director Stu Lash. We know that Pera allowed coach Dave Joerger to interview for the Minnesota Timberwolves’ head coaching job.

7. Joerger Claims ‘Shared Vision’ With Pera -

Dave Joerger said he and Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera had a “shared vision” for what the franchise can accomplish going forward and that in their recent “heart-to-heart” conversation they never discussed whether Pera was close to firing Joerger early into his first season as the team’s head coach.

8. Grizzlies Sign Joerger to Contract Extension -

After interviewing with the Minnesota Timberwolves and reportedly turning down an offer to become their head coach, Dave Joerger agreed to a contract extension with the Memphis Grizzlies to continue as the team’s head coach.

9. Pera’s Just Following Sports Owner Formula -

Until recently, I figured if I ever won a huge lottery and became a gazillionaire, I would indulge my sports fantasy of owning a horse in the Kentucky Derby.

But everyone draws a line somewhere, and I don’t want to pay for the nasal strips on general principle. (California Chrome is just the frontrunner of this movement.)

10. Grizzlies Descend Deeper Into Unconscionable Chaos -

Hard as it is to believe now, it was only May 3 when the Grizzlies last played a basketball game. Less than three weeks later, that Game 7 loss at Oklahoma City stands as the franchise’s last normal moment.

11. AP Sources: Wolves Get Permission to Talk to Joerger -

She brings 16 years of telecommunications experience to the company, which offers protection products and services, including fire protection equipment, training and cleaning services, as well as technology services such as network integration, cabling systems and wireless support.

15. NBA Uses More Ways to Prove ‘Numbers Don’t Lie’ -

Walk up to an ATM, and you’re on camera. Walk into a convenience store, and you’re on camera. Walk onto an NBA court during game time, and you’re not only on camera but every movement you make – or don’t make – will be tracked, sifted, analyzed.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. ‘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.

19. October 4-October 10, 2013: This week in Memphis history -

2012: Robert J. Pera, the new majority owner to be of the Memphis Grizzlies was assembling his local partners for the ownership group. The names included NBA and University of Memphis basketball star Anfernees “Penny” Hardaway, pop star Justin Timberlake and former U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr.

20. Grizz Hope to Extend Honeymoon Period -

Marc Gasol got married during the offseason so, naturally, he was asked how he was enjoying married life.

“It’s not that different,” Gasol said. “We’re still in the honeymoon phase.”

What’s true for the Grizzlies’ All-Star center is true for the entire organization as the team prepares for its first season after the best season in franchise history.

21. Good Feelings Abound as Grizz Open Camp -

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

Lionel Hollins repeatedly said more than he should have.

31. Hollins Move Latest in New Grizz Plan -

Lionel Hollins repeatedly said more than he should have. So it is only fitting that the end of Hollins’ tenure as coach of the Memphis Grizzlies was marked by deafening silence from franchise CEO Jason Levien and then, finally, a press release saying the franchise was going to “move in a different direction.”

32. Hollins Out as Grizzlies Coach -

Lionel Hollins is no longer with the Memphis Grizzlies, the NBA team’s front office announced Monday, June 10.

33. Answering Memphis’ Hot Sports Topics -

In a week with too many worthy column topics and too many valid questions deserving answers, let’s spend a few moments with each one.

First up, “The Lionel Hollins Situation.” The very name tells you what a mess it has become. There are many questions here, but let’s focus on these three:

34. App Savvy -

Memphis’ entrepreneurial ecosystem has picked up a steady stream of buzz and success in recent years, attracting new participants, mentors, startups and accelerators.

In all that activity, though, it’s sometimes forgotten that there are startups out there that entrepreneurs have built from the ground up pretty much on their own, forgoing outside help to rely purely on their own hustle.

35. Offseason Questions Abound for Grizzlies -

Maybe the fans standing and cheering moments before the Grizzlies were swept out of the Western Conference Finals were simply saying thank you for a great season, a franchise-best 56-win season and the team’s deepest playoff run in history.

36. Can Grizz Dig Out of Conference Finals Hole? -

39. Grizzlies Trying to Create Season to Remember -

Disappointments past can set up unmitigated joy in the present. At its best, that’s how this whole sports fandom thing works.

47. Chemistry Slowly Building for New-Look Grizzlies -

They showed up in matching blue and white-striped Grizzlies sweat suits, looking like they had walked into FedExForum from the 1980s.

48. New Uniform, Same Rudy Gay -

Rudy Gay is incognito now – disguised as a genuine star player who had to go north of the border to take his rightful place center stage.

In his first start, a loss to the Miami Heat, Rudy scored 29 points on 11-of-23 shooting.

49. Grizzlies Must Reset Season’s Shot Clock -

51. By the Numbers -

John Hollinger is a familiar sight at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, the event Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has jokingly described as Geekapalooza.

Hollinger was a panelist this past March at the most recent conference, when he was still an ESPN columnist and a few months away from being offered a job in the Memphis Grizzlies front office.

52. Turning the Page -

It’s that time of year again. It’s that time when journalists across the fruited plain collectively try and make God laugh – with our prognostications, of course, about the year ahead and of what might be.

53. Grizzlies CEO Levien Longtime Fan of Memphis -
