- Friday, February 14, 2014
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.

2. Time a Friend to Grizz
- Friday, January 31, 2014
Sometimes, the NBA season feels too long. It can stretch on and on like a West Texas highway. Or the Grammy Awards.

4. ‘Under the Radar’ Conley Carrying Grizzlies This Season
- Friday, January 17, 2014
Already, the national conversation has started. Who deserves to be on the NBA’s Western Conference All-Star team?
In Memphis, that question has become personal as fans and players stump for point guard Mike Conley. After Conley scored 31 points with seven assists (his second straight 30-point performance) in a five-point win over Phoenix, Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph pretty much spoke for everyone with a vested interest on this topic.
5. Grizzlies Now the Team Getting Kicked Around
- Friday, December 20, 2013
It is no longer too early to determine the highlight of the Grizzlies 2013-2014 season.

6. Looking for Last Season’s Grizz to Make Appearance … Now
- Friday, November 15, 2013
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.
- Saturday, October 26, 2013
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.

11. Franklin Looks to Honor ‘Grindson’ Nickname
- Thursday, July 04, 2013
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?
In other words, why was San Diego State shooting guard Jamaal Franklin still there for taking by Memphis in the middle of the second round?

- Friday, May 10, 2013
As the Grizzlies’ series with the Oklahoma City Thunder shifted to Memphis for Game 3 on Saturday, May 11, the Grizzlies found themselves in much better position than during the Clippers’ series.

18. Clippers’ Bench Spells Trouble for Grizzlies
- Friday, April 19, 2013
The Los Angeles Clippers may or may not prove to be serious Western Conference title contenders.

19. Conley Proving Adept at Stealing the Show
- Friday, April 05, 2013
The question came at Lionel Hollins as a compliment, the way many questions after dramatic victories do.
The Grizzlies had just beaten the San Antonio Spurs, 92-90, at a rowdy FedExForum on a driving layup by point guard Mike Conley for the team’s 50th win – tying the franchise record. So the coach was asked to explain his team’s “resiliency.”
20. Troubling Trends Plague Grizzlies’ Recent Play
- Friday, March 29, 2013

23. Startup Ground Zero
- Saturday, February 16, 2013
For three days over the past week, Memphis was effectively ground zero for technologists, startup founders, investors and entrepreneurs from near and far.

26. Tony and DJ: The City’s Basketball Game-Changers
- Friday, January 25, 2013
The supreme talents – the All-Americans, the All-Stars – can take possessions off and still score their 25 or 30 points a night. They can pick their spots to play defense, which in reality means going for a steal here and there, and then mostly defer on the hard work. You know, staying with their man step-for-step, cleaning the glass – sorry, I don’t do windows – or risking humiliation by contesting potential dunks – sorry, I’m not ending up on somebody’s poster.

- Monday, March 12, 2012
What does it take to open a restaurant?
Nerve, desire, concept, location, money.
Vicki Newsum-Hall and her husband, Ernest “Tony” Hall, certainly had the desire, they got the nerve, they had a concept, they found the location and somehow the money and – not least by any means – a chef named Xena Lovelady, and they opened Evelyn & Olive Restaurant and Wine Bar on Jan. 9 at 630 Madison Ave., a rather lonely stretch of Madison between Downtown and the Medical Center.
