1. Grizzlies Part of Crowded Western Conference Race
- Monday, October 27, 2014
Calling it the Wild West just doesn't do it justice anymore.
The NBA's Western Conference is brutal. It's loaded with talent. And the eight teams that make it through a gruelingly competitive regular season to reach the playoffs will only find slugging their way to the NBA Finals even more daunting.
2. Legacy Building
- Saturday, September 13, 2014
2014 is shaping up to be a banner year for Legacy Wealth Management, an independent financial planning and portfolio management firm that’s moved into a prominent new space, continued staffing up over the last several months and is preparing to launch a seminar series.

4. NBA Fuels Fans’ Suspicion of Game Fixing
- Friday, May 09, 2014
Just so there is no misunderstanding, let me answer this question first:
Do I believe NBA Playoff games are actually fixed?
No, I do not. I don’t think that Commissioner Adam Silver now, or David Stern before him, is sitting in the rafters of NBA arenas and pulling strings that make puppets, er, officials, blow whistles when someone deigns to breathe on LeBron James or Kevin Durant.
5. Thunder's 'Easy Points' Take Grizz Down 104-84
- Friday, May 02, 2014
In a season dedicated to doing things the hard way, the Memphis Grizzlies are now face-to-face with a Game 7 on Saturday in Oklahoma City.
Able to survive blowing leads, able to win three of four overtime games to take a 3-2 series lead over the No. 2 seed Thunder, the Grizzlies could not stomach their fleeting prosperity. In fact, they could not even make Game 6 Thursday night on their home court anything close to competitive.
6. Grizzlies Look to Clinch Tight Series
- Thursday, May 01, 2014
Through five playoff games, four overtimes and three wins in overtime, the Memphis Grizzlies have played fast and loose with opportunities.
Big leads have evaporated – see that 20-point advantage in the third quarter of Game 5 at Oklahoma City Tuesday night – and late leads have been squandered – see that five-point cushion with about a minute to go in the Game 4 loss at FedExForum.
7. Best of Three
- Tuesday, April 29, 2014
After the Game 3 victory in overtime, Tony Allen made it plain that the Grizzlies were all about stopping Oklahoma City stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
8. Grizz Overcome Adversity, Go Up 2-1
- Friday, April 25, 2014
During one reality-defying stretch in the first half, Tony Allen and Beno Udrih scored 18 straight points for the Memphis Grizzlies.
9. Grizz Nation Rallies Around Entire Team
- Friday, April 25, 2014
It was a natural enough question, but if you’re a Grizzlies fan you had to love the answer.
On Wednesday, April 23, a day before Game 3 of the Grizzlies’ first-round series with Oklahoma City, a visiting reporter asked Tony Allen (who played at Oklahoma State) if he was finding extra motivation from playing the Thunder.
10. Allen, Grizz Ready for Thunder’s Adjustments
- Thursday, April 24, 2014
If Kevin Durant is Superman then Tony Allen is … that’s right, kryptonite. At least that was the contention in at least one Internet headline after Allen rendered Durant mortal in the Grizzlies’ overtime win in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series at Oklahoma City.
11. Joerger Still Floating After Epic Game 2
- Wednesday, April 23, 2014
About 12 hours after the Memphis Grizzlies’ epic 111-105 overtime victory at Oklahoma City Monday, April 21, in Game 2 of a first-round Western Conference Playoff series, coach Dave Joerger was still trying to find his voice.
12. No Bluffing
- Saturday, April 19, 2014
Each season the last home game at FedExForum is Fan Appreciation Night and a Grizzlies’ player is charged with grabbing the microphone and walking to center court to say a few words before tip-off.
13. Legacy Wealth Management Grows Staff, Relocates
- Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Legacy Wealth Management is starting 2014 with a handful of new faces and a move to a new office soon.
New additions to the ranks at Legacy include Brent Westbrook, who’s joined the firm as managing director of business development and client service. He came to Legacy from Argent Financial Group and will be working to introduce Legacy’s services to individuals, families and business-sponsored retirement plans.
14. Sherman Breath of Fresh Air for Sportswriters
- Friday, January 24, 2014
I have waited for San Antonio point guard Tony Parker to take a shower, dress, whip a winter scarf around his neck and then say something so boring that my tape recorder yawned.
15. ‘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.
16. Grizzlies Look to Build Momentum
- Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Their winning streak is a modest two games. But don’t tell the Grizzlies they’re the same team that they were a month ago.
Since a five-game losing streak from Dec. 11-18, the Grizzlies have gone 7-4. They have added forward James Johnson, who has injected them with energy, athleticism and an ability to contribute numbers all across a box score. They have exchanged a disappointing Jerryd Bayless for shooting guard Courtney Lee, who in the Grizzlies 108-101 victory over Atlanta Sunday, Jan. 12, at FedExForum scored 15 points in his first start since being acquired from Boston on Jan. 7.
17. Injury Bug Has Grizz Fans Crying in Beers
- Friday, December 13, 2013

- Saturday, November 30, 2013

19. Redbirds Proving Key Role in ‘Cardinal Way’
- Tuesday, October 15, 2013
The St. Louis Cardinals had just wrapped up one playoff series and were headed to the National League Championship Series with a roster mainly comprised of homegrown players.
There was rookie pitcher Michael Wacha, who had flirted with no-hitters in the regular season and in the NL Division Series. There was first baseman Matt “Big City” Adams, who stepped into the void created by Allen Craig’s foot injury. And there was 23-year-old Trevor Rosenthal, who was thrust into that all-important closer’s role late in the season.
20. Coaching Hire Presents Risk/Reward for Grizz
- Friday, June 28, 2013
So the Grizzlies finally made it official and promoted lead assistant Dave Joerger to head coach. This qualified as breaking news about as much as reporting that barbecue has been discovered in Memphis.
21. Can Grizz Dig Out of Conference Finals Hole?
- Friday, May 24, 2013
So the family room is full for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. It’s the third quarter, or maybe early in the fourth, and there’s a moment of quiet.
“Wow, that’s a slow-moving system,” my wife says.
22. Grizzlies Must Maintain ‘Thirsty Dog’ Mentality
- 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.
Instead of staring up at a 0-2 deficit, their Game 2 victory tied the series 1-1 and has allowed them the possibility to advance to the Western Conference Finals just by winning three games at FedExForum.
23. Grizzlies Trying to Create Season to Remember
- Friday, May 03, 2013
Disappointments past can set up unmitigated joy in the present. At its best, that’s how this whole sports fandom thing works.
You invest yourself emotionally (yes, perhaps financially, too) and if you hold the stock (your loyalty) long enough, there’s a nice payoff.

27. Johnson’s Breakout Game Sparks Resounding Victory
- Friday, December 07, 2012
