1. Time is Now
- Saturday, October 18, 2014
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. But it’s not about just getting there, not about playing a tough seven-game series, as the Grizzlies did in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs against Oklahoma City last season, only to come home after a dispiriting Game 7 loss.
2. Once High-Flying Vince Carter in Different Role With Grizz
- Friday, October 10, 2014
At this stage of his NBA career, there are a lot of euphemisms for Vince Carter.
Veteran. Elder statesman. Old guy. Those were Carter’s own words when describing his exit in Dallas this summer, after owner Mark Cuban put a three-year, $46.1 million offer sheet in front of 25-year-old Chandler Parsons. The Benefactor indeed.
3. This week in Memphis history: September 19-25

5. Haslam, Alexander Look to Boost Republican Turnout
- Wednesday, August 06, 2014
U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher remembers the first time that he talked with U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander.

6. Grizzlies Draft UCLA's Adams, Memphis Native Stokes
- Friday, June 27, 2014
Whether it will prove to be a telling remembrance or not, news of the Grizzlies selecting guard UCLA shooting guard Jordan Adams with the No. 22 overall pick in Thursday night’s NBA Draft was largely met with mild disdain, sweeping indifference and a dash of tilt-your-head curiosity.
7. Grizzlies Hope Upheaval Leads to Draft Unity
- Wednesday, June 25, 2014
MEMPHIS (AP) – The Memphis Grizzlies hope the recent tumultuous turnover in their front office translates into a solid, unified draft Thursday night.
For now, the team only has to concentrate on one pick – the 22nd overall – and the opportunity to add selections.

9. 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.
