The Memphis Grizzlies’ decision to move on from Zach Randolph and Tony Allen before last season was, if not on time, definitely not made too early.

51. Legal Sports Betting a Gamble for All -

The most impactful sports score of the week was this one: a 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down the federal law prohibiting sports gambling everywhere but in Nevada.

Going forward, the states can decide if they want to enter the legal sports betting marketplace.

57. Last Word: Trolleys Roll, Primary Election Day and The Rise of South City -

MATA CEO Gary Rosenfeld likes to joke that the new trolleys are quieter since the transit authority decided to change from using square wheels. Transit humor. They really are quieter. And that may be because MATA wasn’t doing much of anything in the way of maintenance on them four years ago and even less in the way of record keeping when a second trolley car burst into flames causing MATA to shut down everything it ran on rails. So the trolley that rolled out of the MATA barn on North Main Street Monday morning and into service was symbolic of more than getting a trolley or three ready for service. It was about building a new system around the operation of the trolleys.

58. SEC and Alabama Again Dominate NFL Draft -

75. Last Word: Moot Points in Orlando, EDGE Responds and A Mayoral Forum -

The Tigers basketball post season continues to a Friday game with Tulsa the day after the Tigers beat South Florida 79-77 in the AAC tournament in Orlando.

Truth is, if you were in FedExForum for the Grizzlies’ ghastly 110-102 loss to the Phoenix Suns on the last day of February, you were part of history. So was Marc Gasol, who must at times wonder if the seven straight playoff appearances and all that fun with Mike Conley, Zach Randolph and Tony Allen happened in a Grizz Galaxy far, far away.

85. At All-Star Break, Grizzlies’ Reality Not What Anyone Envisioned -

90. Last Word: Credit Hours & Tn Promise, Opioid Differences and Nikki's Hot Rebrand -

A very busy Monday and I feel like some of this is may be fueled by some of us just now getting completely over the flu or someone close who has the flu for the first time in the New Year. Whatever the case, Monday came with a curtain call of sorts by Tennessee Gov.

91. Last Word: End of the Camp Out, Megasite Views and The Glory Years -

No camp out this year for the opening of applications for optional schools because it is online at Shelby County Schools this year.
