1. Grizzlies Not Just Losing Games, But Respect -

Another horrific loss, another long counseling session at Marc Gasol’s locker with Gasol simultaneously playing the parts of frustrated team psychologist and exasperated patient.

This time, he talked more than 12 minutes. At the end of it, after he had tried to explain to us and to himself how the Grizzlies had just lost by 25 points to a mediocre Miami Heat team, the media masses walked away.

2. Grizzlies' Andrew Harrison Again Contributing -

There is really no replacing starting point guard Mike Conley. That much is obvious for a Grizzlies team on a three-game losing streak and that has lost 14 of its last 15 games.

While Tyreke Evans has made a pretty good transition from off-the-bench scoring machine to starting and often running the team, another guard also has seen a change in duties.

3. Bench Power -

Through games of Nov. 7, the Memphis Grizzlies were 7-4. You probably knew that. You recall the thrill of taking down the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors at FedExForum and beating the much-hyped Houston Rockets twice – on the road and at home.

4. Goodin Joins Hagwood Adelman As Memphis Managing Attorney -

Michael T. Goodin has joined Hagwood Adelman Tipton PC as managing attorney of the Memphis office. In that role, he provides legal services to HAT’s clients in matters such as medical malpractice and senior housing litigation for health care providers along the continuum of care, including skilled nursing, assisted living, behavioral health, home health and hospice litigation. In addition, he assists in supervising the attorney and paraprofessional teams.

5. Grizz Pay for Parsons And Fans Pay for Right to Boo Him -

What is your definition of “tasteless?” Is it Grizzlies fans booing $94 million man Chandler Parsons on opening night, frustrated when he wouldn’t shoot open jumpers and when he could only make 1-of-5 free throws? All, by the way, when they were wildly cheering and giving standing ovations to former Grizzly and still adored Grindfather Tony Allen, the guy the organization let walk and sign for the veteran’s minimum with New Orleans?

6. Dillon Brooks Injects Hope, Excitement into Grizzlies’ Season -

The rookie admitted there was at least a moment of concern. Dillon Brooks would score 19 points with five rebounds, four steals, mostly look like he had been playing in the NBA for about 10 years, and his team would win on opening night.

7. Roster Moves Show Grizzlies Know They Can’t Put Tomorrow Ahead of Today -

From the time training camp opened this year, forward Jarell Martin was considered likely to be left on the outside looking in when the Grizzlies made their final roster cuts. Martin was a first-round selection in the 2015 NBA Draft, but speculation was he would be competing with young Deyonta Davis, a second-round pick in 2016, for the last roster slot on the front line. And because Davis was just 20 and considered raw but with much potential, Martin would lose out.

8. The Week Ahead: Oct. 16-22 -

Hey, Memphis! Fall is definitely in the air now, as the slate of festivals and fun outdoor activities continue to roll on in the Bluff City. The Memphis Grizzlies open their 2017-2018 season at FedExForum against Tony Allen’s new team and don’t be surprised if you start seeing some ghosts and goblins by this weekend.

9. Turning The Page -

The Memphis Grizzlies still cling to their old grit-and-grind identity – at least for marketing purposes and perhaps a subconscious need for comfort and security. But they also decided now was the time they had to initiate transformative change.

10. Core Two: Fizdale Expects and Needs Gasol and Conley to Lead -

For all of the uncertainty surrounding the Grizzlies as they wind down the preseason – from a still-diminished Chandler Parsons possibly being relegated to backup power forward to ongoing roster spot battles – coach David Fizdale is sure of this much:

11. Warriors to Win NBA Title Again, NBA GM Survey Says -

Marc Gasol is the third-best center in the NBA, Mike Conley the fourth-best leader, and former Grizzlies defensive stopper Tony Allen is still tough, but no longer the toughest guy in the league.

12. Life of a Quarterback -

Senior Austin Allen watched his older brother Brandon live the highs and the lows of the thrill ride that is being a starting quarterback for Arkansas in the SEC.

13. A Positive First Step For Grizzlies’ Mario Chalmers -

Veteran point guard Mario Chalmers is on a partially guaranteed contract and that means what it sounds like it means. The Grizzlies wanted to give Chalmers, 31, a long look, but coming off surgery for an Achilles injury they didn’t believe it was automatic he would be ready to serve as Mike Conley’s backup as he did two seasons ago.

14. Chandler Parsons, Grizzlies Hit Reset Button -

A much younger Chandler Parsons would not have liked last year’s $94 million chronically hurt, and painfully ineffective, Chandler Parsons. Not one bit.

Parsons grew up in Orlando and rooted for the Magic. He loved like a fan. He hated like a fan.

15. Grizzlies Begin Life Without Z-Bo and TA, But Cling to Grit & Grind -

Another Memphis Grizzlies Media Day is done, the first one in this seven-year playoff run after the departure of Tony Allen and Zach Randolph.

16. From Ownership to the Roster, Grizzlies Full of Questions -

Chandler Parsons’ knees. There are two well-documented concerns.

Depth at point guard. This isn’t just an annual concern, it’s a Grizzlies tradition as much as Zach Randolph throwing his headband into the crowd … oh, yeah, bad example.

17. Council Delays Downtown Advance, Approves Another -

Memphis City Council members Tuesday, Sept. 19, delayed for two weeks a vote on a $10 million advance to start renovation design work on the Memphis Cook Convention Center, seeking more specific information. City chief operating officer Doug McGowen said he would provide the council with a timeline and specific work to be done.

18. Last Word: GPAC's Grove, Fairgrounds Tea Leaves and Grizz Money Matters -

The Germantown Performing Arts Center has plans for an open-air performance center to be called “The Grove at GPAC” – the latest consideration in what is becoming a vibrant discussion about the capacity for concerts within Shelby County. And it is also a discussion about concert venues that can do other things like festival and movies.

19. Council Delays One Downtown Advance, Approves Another -

Memphis City Council members Tuesday, Sept. 19, delayed for two weeks a vote on a $10 million advance to start renovation design work on the Memphis Cook Convention Center, seeking more specific information. City chief operating officer Doug McGowen said he would provide the council with a timeline and specific work to be done.

20. Last Word: Juvenile Court Return, Berlin Boyd's Week and Tony Allen Thoughts -

Two weeks ago Juvenile Court Judge Dan Michael was on Behind The Headlines in a half-hour conversation about the court and federal oversight that drew quite a bit of reaction to Michael’s strong opinions about the need to end that oversight. Even before that reaction we had planned to do a second part of the conversation with those who favor continued federal oversight of the court.

21. Life After Tony Allen? A Lot More Boring Than Life With Tony Allen -

Tony Allen at his best was the best. Or as he loved to remind us all with a gesture and a shout: FIRST-TEAM ALL-DEFENSE!

But God love him, he was never easy.

No player, just like no person, is always at his best. We know this. We all have our highs and lows. Thing is, most of us spend much of life in that vast middle ground of our own, personal, averageness.

22. Looks Like Another 8-4 Season for Tennessee -

Oops. I goofed last year. So did lots of other people who thought Tennessee’s football team would win the SEC East Division and go to the league championship game for the first time since 2007.

23. A Season for Rethinking Options Makes Sense at This Point -

After another first-round playoff exit this spring, a very direct question was put to All-Star center Marc Gasol:

Was he still dedicated to the Grizzlies, to seeing this franchise become the best it can be?

24. Arrested in LA, Z-Bo Will Remain a Hero in Memphis -

Change the location. Change the month and the year, too.

Instead of Sacramento Kings free-agent signee Zach Randolph being arrested at the Nickerson Gardens housing project in Watts in August of 2017, our beloved Z-Bo is arrested here.

25. Vandiver Growing Customer Relationships at Agritech Firm The Seam -

The Seam, a technology firm founded by agribusiness companies that specializes in commodity trading and management systems, has added Rex Vandiver in a customer development role. Vandiver helps with customer support and project management, and he’s also taking a greater role in involvement with the peanut industry to help The Seam better serve its customers’ needs.

26. Grizzlies Paradox: Get Younger, Get Older, Stay Relevant -

The Memphis Grizzlies continue to walk dual trails. It is what they must do, even if such hedging threatens to constrain both their immediate and long-range future.

We learned this week that 31-year-old point guard Mario Chalmers is returning to the Grizzlies on a partially guaranteed one-year contract. Two seasons ago, Chalmers was an impactful backup for Mike Conley until a ruptured Achilles tendon ended his season.

27. Alabama is Media’s Overwhelming Pick To Win SEC Title -

Twice in the previous three years, SEC media correctly predicted the SEC champion. Both times, they did it by picking Alabama (2014, 2016). They went with Alabama again this year, predicting the Crimson Tide to defeat Georgia in the SEC title game.

28. Sports Notebook: Grizz Moves Bring Tyreke Evans Back to Memphis -

The Memphis Grizzlies continued changing their roster for the upcoming season by agreeing to a one-year contract with free agent guard Tyreke Evans.

Evans, according to ESPN, will make $3.3 million on the one-year deal. Evans, 27, played one year for the University of Memphis and then was the fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft by the Sacramento Kings.

29. The Press Box: Grizzlies Inevitable Victims of Identity Theft -

It was late last November and Zach Randolph was going to be away from the team for several days because of his mother’s passing. So before the Grizzlies played the Miami Heat at FedExForum, the head coach was asked how he would cover Randolph’s minutes.

30. Z-Bo Leaves Memphis With Many Memories -

Eight years ago this week, there was a press conference at FedExForum. The Memphis Grizzlies had acquired a power forward via a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers.

As is the routine when the Grizzlies get a new player, he posed holding his new jersey – No. 50 – with general manager Chris Wallace. That was how the Zach Randolph years started here.

31. New Grizzlies Ready to Work, Free Agent Picture Still Cloudy -

All across the NBA landscape, teams are trotting out their second-round draft picks and saying the same things: We had these players rated higher. We couldn’t believe they were still there. And the classic, “We’re so happy they fell to us.”

32. Grizzlies Grabbed Accomplished College Players in NBA Draft -

When last week’s NBA Draft tipped off, the Grizzlies were outsiders with no picks. It didn’t stay that way. General manager Chris Wallace had indicated weeks earlier the Grizzlies would approach this draft as if they had picks, adding, “You don’t know what opportunities will come your way in the 11th hour.”

33. Grizzlies Swap Future Picks for Rabb, Brooks in 2nd Round -

AP – The Memphis Grizzlies just couldn't sit out the NBA draft, so they swapped a future second-round selection apiece for a pair of second-round players Thursday night.

The Grizzlies landed power forward Ivan Rabb of California with the 35th pick in a draft-night trade with the Orlando Magic, then made a deal with the Houston Rockets for the rights to shooting forward Dillon Brooks of Oregon. Memphis selected Brooks with the 45th pick.

34. For Grizzlies, a New Chapter About to Begin -

The June 22nd NBA Draft will tip off without the Memphis Grizzlies. At least that’s the case almost one week out. The Grizzlies have no picks.

What they do have, in abundance, are free agents.

35. Flintco Files $25 Million Permit for ServiceMaster HQ -

150 Peabody Place
Memphis, TN 38103

Permit Amount: $25 million

Application Date: May 2017 

36. Methodist University Hospital Continues Modernization -

Methodist University Hospital is seeking a $2.5 million building permit to continue work on its $280 million modernization project on its campus, 1265 Union Ave.

37. Raleigh Springs Town Center ‘On Track and On Budget’ -

It’s the end of an era with the final demolition of Raleigh Springs Mall underway, and city and community leaders hope it’s the beginning of a brighter future with the much-anticipated Raleigh Springs Town Center set to rise in its place.

38. Business Time -

Had the flattering comments come from the Memphis Grizzlies’ own content producers, Grind City Media, they would have been easy enough to dismiss. After all, that would have been like what center Marc Gasol said at season’s end when stressing the importance of candid evaluation.

39. His Team: After One Season, David Fizdale Leaves Fingerprints on Grizzlies -

The pain of losing his first NBA playoff series as a rookie head coach was still fresh, still raw. The night before, David Fizdale watched as his Grizzlies fell to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 in the first round.

40. 7 Takeaways as Grizzlies Transition to Off-Season -

The Grizzlies’ Game 6 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in their first-round playoff series ended their 2016-2017 season. Less than 24 hours later at FedExForum, first-year coach David Fizdale and players met with the media to recap the season that was and to look ahead.

41. Spurs Win Series with 103-96 Victory in Game 6 -

With 6:29 left in the fourth quarter San Antonio’s Danny Green fouled Mike Conley as he was attempting a 3-point shot. It was a mistake that went against the Spurs’ championship DNA. And when Conley made all three free throws, the Memphis Grizzlies owned an 88-81 lead late Thursday night within the friendly confines of FedExForum.

42. NFL Experts Can’t Agree On QBs in Upcoming Draft -

The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 27, and it seems more than likely that Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett will go first overall to the hapless Cleveland Browns. 

At nfl.com, three of four draft insiders have the Browns taking Garrett and the other, naturally, has the Browns returning to the quarterback well to pick North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky; Garrett then goes No. 2 to San Francisco.

43. Fizdale’s Rant Echoes Before Game 3 vs. Spurs -

As expected, the NBA reacted to Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale’s press conference critique of its officials by handing out a $30,000 fine. Fizdale spared no opinion after the Game 2 first-round playoff series loss in San Antonio, detailing a free-throw disparity that had Kawhi Leonard shooting 19 free throws to the 15 takes by all of the Grizzlies.

44. Game 1 Suggests Grizzlies Don’t Have Enough to Compete for 48 Minutes -

The Grizzlies can win a quarter. They won the first quarter in Game 1 of their playoff series at San Antonio. Even led by as many as 13 points before carrying a 30-25 lead into the second quarter.

But in the three quarters that followed they were outscored 27-19, 32-15 and 27-18. That added up to a 111-82 loss that, until the Grizzlies prove otherwise, confirmed the worst fears about how this series will go.

45. If It’s the NBA Playoffs, It Must Be Grizzlies vs. Spurs -

For the fifth time in the 10 playoff seasons in franchise history, the Memphis Grizzlies will play the San Antonio Spurs. They have been swept them by them in the first round twice (2004 and 2016), swept in the Western Conference Finals (2013) and shocked the NBA by upsetting the Spurs as the No. 8 seed in the first round (2011).

46. Grizzlies Limp Into Closing of Regular Season -

For a brief and blessed time the Grizzlies’ injury reports were vacant. This was back before Chandler Parsons’ season ended with yet another knee issue, before Marc Gasol’s left foot strain, JaMychal Green’s sore left shoulder and Andrew Harrison’s gimpy right ankle.

47. The Conductor, Mike Conley, Orchestrating A Career Year -

Hours before the Indiana Pacers found themselves caught in the middle of a tornadic offensive performance from Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley, there was a calm at FedExForum. As the Grizzlies went through their day-of-game shoot-around, Conley was almost still, standing off to the side and playing coach. With Conley’s history of being banged up at this stage of the season, Tony Allen was understandably concerned.

48. Grizzlies Reeling as They Begin Two-Game Homestand -

When the Grizzlies play the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night, March 29, at FedExForum it will be the first of their last eight games in the regular season. When they tip off just after 7 p.m., they will do so carrying a four-game losing streak and having lost nine of their last 13 games.

49. No Time to Rest: NBA Has a Problem -

We know from Genesis 2:2 that on the seventh day God finished his creation and rested. So everybody needs rest.

Of course, there is no mention of changing time zones in that passage. Nor anything about the challenge of creating on the second night of a back-to-back.

50. Late in the Season, Grizzlies Still Seeking Consistency, Chemistry -

Players and coach David Fizdale have had some, well, interesting things to say in the wake of that dreadful 122-109 loss to the NBA-worst Brooklyn Nets. But this isn’t about one game, one lineup change or even one quote from Fizdale that at times has been taken out of context.

51. Grizzlies’ Struggles Continue in Loss to Lowly Nets -

By the end, FedExForum looked like the early days at The Pyramid. The Grizzlies were losing by double-digits as the clock was winding down and fans were filing out into the night.

The Grindhouse, once a fortress of defense and Memphis pride, had a sadness about it, a tiredness and a quietness about it, except for the occasional and echoing “boo-o-o-o” that was well-deserved, if also pointless.

52. As Rookie NBA Head Coach, Grizzlies’ David Fizdale Earns Acclaim -

He has been forthright – with his players and when speaking with the media. First-year Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale doesn’t go in for verbal gymnastics or political double-talk.

Nor does he worry about appearances. He cancelled shoot-arounds on game days multiple times right before the All-Star break because he believed his veteran guys could use the rest. A more paranoid coach, a less assured man, might have worried about the fallout if the results were not good.

53. Grizz Hit All-Star Break With Loss, But Their Goals Are Within Reach -

After he had answered the obligatory questions about the Grizzlies’ ugly 95-91 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans in the last game before the All-Star break, coach David Fizdale spoke to the big picture: “We’re in good position.”

54. Warriors Get Revenge against Grizzlies 122-107 -

Maybe it was as simple as the law of probabilities.

“They weren’t losing three times in a row,” Tony Allen said after the Golden State Warriors came into FecExForum and beat the Grizzlies 122-107 Friday night, Feb. 10.

55. Grizzlies Hold Spurs to Season-Low for Points in 89-74 Victory -

No Grizzlies player scored more than 15 points or made more than one 3-pointer. The team’s big free agent signing in the off-season, forward Chandler Parsons, suffered through another cold shooting night going 1 of 10 from the floor.

56. Imperfect Grizzlies? Yes, And They Have Much Company -

T he Grizzlies have two wins over both the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets. That’s, you know, not supposed to happen. And this week, LeBron James sounded off on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ desperate need for a backup point guard. So the world champions have issues.

57. Sports Bind City -

Maybe it is your spouse’s Christmas party. Or a local business conference and no one else from your company is attending. When you give the room the once-over, it’s full of unfamiliar faces.

58. Grizzlies Hesitate to Use 3-Point Shooting Bargain -

On Jan. 16, Grizzlies guard Troy Daniels quoted Martin Luther King Jr., posting this on Twitter: “Your self-sacrificing devotion to your purpose in life and your unwavering faith will carry you through times of difficulty.”#MLKDay.

59. View From the Hill: Taxing Online Sales Not Such an Easy Fix -

Cumberland Transit owner Allen Doty isn’t sure if a rule requiring major out-of-state retailers to collect Tennessee sales taxes will create more equity for his shop.

But Doty, who has been selling everything from bicycles to kayaks and camping gear for 34 years in Nashville, is definitely tired of people shopping in his store for hours, snapping a picture of shoes they like, then going home and buying them online “just to avoid sales tax.”

60. Dedric Lawson a Double-Double Machine; Josh Pastner Beats North Carolina -

Not only is sophomore Dedric Lawson atop many of the University of Memphis basketball team’s statistical categories, he’s among the leaders nationally in several categories.

Going into the Tigers’ Thursday, Jan. 5, home game vs. UConn, Lawson led Memphis and the American Athletic Conference with a scoring average of 20.6 points per game, that ranked 34th in the country. His 11.1 rebounds per game are second in the AAC and 10th in the nation.

61. Growing Pains -

First came the ho-hum start that left open the possibility the Grizzlies’ harshest critics might be right: This season could be the fast-forwarded beginning of an end, a sad narrative that could leave the Grizzlies on the outside of the postseason after a thrilling six-year run.

62. Grizz GM Wallace, Others Get Contract Extensions -

Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera has announced that general manager Chris Wallace, executive vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger and executive vice president of player personnel Ed Stefanski have been signed to multi-year extensions.

63. Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace, Others Get Contract Extensions -

Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera has announced that general manager Chris Wallace, executive vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger and executive vice president of player personnel Ed Stefanski have been signed to multi-year extensions.

64. Grizzlies Great at Winning Close Ones, But Upcoming Schedule Unkind -

The Grizzlies had just survived to beat the Orlando Magic 95-94 at FedExForum. This was on the first day of December and it kicked off what would become, at minimum, a four-game winning streak.

“We did a good job of staying in the moment,” center and team captain Marc Gasol said.

65. Local Mortgage Market Sees Busy November -

If mortgage bankers in Shelby County were expecting things to start winding down for the year in November, the pace of activity for the month kept them unexpectedly busy.

Purchase volume soared during November over the year-ago period, according to new figures from real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com. October had already seen a year-over-year pickup in activity to kick off the fourth quarter, and that pattern continued last month.

66. Conley Injures Back in Grizzlies’ Lopsided Loss to Charlotte -

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley could miss six weeks after sustaining a back injury in Monday’s 105-84 loss to the Charlotte Hornets at FedExForum. 

Near press time, Adrian Wojnarowksi of Yahoo! Sports reported that Conley had suffered a transverse process fracture of the vertebrae and  would be out indefinitely.

67. Tied at the Hip: Conley-Harrison Giving Grizzlies Strong Point Guard Play -

Tom Thibodeau does not hand out compliments casually. He was demanding and exacting as coach of the Chicago Bulls and he is the same way with the Minnesota Timberwolves. And when he praises an opposing player, he isn’t offering a sound bite. He is simply speaking the truth.

68. Grizzlies Beat Charlotte For Fifth Straight Win -

Point guard Mike Conley scored a season-high 31 points and center Marc Gasol nearly had a triple-double as the Grizzlies cruised to a 105-90 win at Charlotte Monday night for their fifth consecutive victory.

69. Grizzlies Win Fourth Straight, 93-71 over Minnesota -

It was like old times. Tony Allen was saying “we hold our hats on the defensive end,” the Grizzlies’ horrendous 3-point shooting didn’t matter, and even a paltry 19 combined points from Mike Conley and Marc Gasol didn’t doom them.

70. The Week Ahead: October 24-30 -

The real fall may finally have arrived in Memphis, but we’ll see. What we do know will arrive this week is the Memphis Grizzlies’ first real game of the 2016-2017 season at FedExForum. And the first public look inside a very historic Memphis church near FedExForum the day before that season opener. The Wolf River also is in the news this week and toward week’s end, Halloween will be lurking around the corner.     

71. Resetting the Bar -

David Fizdale is a first-time NBA head coach. Tubby Smith is a college coach with a Hall-of-Fame resume.

In Memphis, on the eve of the 2016-2017 NBA and college basketball seasons, they also share this in common: They are leaders that are worlds apart from their most immediate predecessors. Their mere presence, before the season even tips off, has changed the hopes, dreams and expectations for the city’s hoops fans.

72. Cleveland Indians, ‘Major League’ Come to World Series -

The Chicago Cubs have the charm and the brand. Lovable losers. The Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field.

And they are fighting 108 years of history. The Goat Curse. The Gatorade on Leon Durham’s glove. Steve Bartman.

73. Vols Get Midterm B Despite Back-to-Back Losses -

Tennessee’s football team is spending this week’s open date trying to get healthy after a rugged four-game stretch of SEC football in which they defeated Florida and Georgia and lost to Texas A&M and Alabama.

74. 24 Questions: Counting Down to the Start of the NBA Season -

With the start of the NBA season drawing near, let’s get that shot clock running and put up 24 questions in need of answers:

24. Will the Philadelphia 76ers, who were at FedExForum to play the Grizzlies in a preseason game this past week, finally crack 20 victories after winning 19 games three seasons ago, then 18, and only 10 last season?

75. The Press Box: Flawed Feathers, Grizz Preseason, and Dak’s Fame -

Wading in with a few thoughts as the baseball postseason nears, the Grizzlies get ready to play games that don’t count, and Dak Prescott’s new-found fame …

The St. Louis Cardinals, in all probability, will not make the playoffs. Oh, sure, as I write this they are mathematically alive for a wild card spot. They win out, they get help – the San Francisco Giants’ combustible bullpen being the most likely source – they could sneak in, even win the wildcard game, and find themselves facing the rival Chicago Cubs in the Division Series.

76. Could Fizdale Be the Wind Beneath Grizzlies’ Wings? -

Preseasons are based on optimism, on fresh starts, on positive change and on the belief that anything is possible. So, yes, it was all ice cream and sunshine at Grizzlies Media Day; actually, a slimmer Zach Randolph was seen helping himself to a slice of the media’s pizza, but the point is unbridled hope is the oxygen that sustains teams – and fans – before the games start for real.

77. Parsons ‘Progressing’ in Knee Surgery Rehab, But May Not be Ready for Season’s Start -

Coming back from knee surgery isn’t new to Chandler Parson. The biggest free agent signing in Grizzlies history has been there, rehabbed that before.

“Coming off two knee surgeries, the training staff has developed a program to be more on the cautious side,” Parsons said at the team’s annual pre-training camp media day on Monday, Sept. 26. “At the same time, every day they’re working to get me strong, working on flexibility, range of motion, from my hips to my back to my feet to everything that ties in with the knee.”

78. Fizdale Vows to be Cautious With Gasol, Conley in Training Camp, Preseason -

No one, including Marc Gasol himself, will know that he has really recovered from his broken foot suffered last February until he’s playing games that count and then able to stack games on top of one another.

79. Memphis Running Game Must Improve, Ole Miss Seeks 3rd Win Over Bama -

On the plus side, the University of Memphis was not upset and the 35-17 victory over Southeast Missouri State was never in doubt. There was never that moment when one feared this would become what happened to Mississippi State (losing to South Alabama the opening weekend) or almost happened to Tennessee (pushed to overtime by Appalachian State).

80. Grizzlies to Stay Home For Training Camp -

The Memphis Grizzlies will remain in the Bluff City for their preseason training camp from Sept. 27 through Oct. 2.

This marks the 10th time since relocating from Vancouver in 2001 that the Grizzlies have held their training camp in Memphis. The team also has hosted camp in Barcelona, Spain (2003), Malaga, Spain (2007), Birmingham, Ala. (2009), Nashville (2013), San Diego (2014) and Santa Barbara, Calif. (2015).

81. Grizzlies to Stay Home For Training Camp -

The Memphis Grizzlies will remain in the Bluff City for their preseason training camp from Sept. 27 through Oct. 2.

This marks the 10th time since relocating from Vancouver in 2001 that the Grizzlies have held their training camp in Memphis. The team also has hosted camp in Barcelona, Spain (2003), Malaga, Spain (2007), Birmingham, Ala. (2009), Nashville (2013), San Diego (2014) and Santa Barbara, Calif. (2015).

82. Suburban Challengers Emerge at Filing Deadline For November Ballot -

Thirteen incumbents in the four suburban municipal elections on the Nov. 8 ballot were effectively re-elected to new terms at the Thursday, Aug. 18, filing deadline for the set of 30 races.

And Chris Denson claimed a seat on the Millington School Board with no opposition for the position incumbent Donald Holsinger is giving up to run for alderman in Millington.

83. Suburban Challengers Emerge at Filing Deadline For November Ballot -

Thirteen incumbents in the four sets of suburban municipal elections on the Nov. 8 ballot were effectively re-elected to new terms at the Thursday, Aug. 18, filing deadline for the set of 30 races.

84. Collierville, Millington Mayoral Races Top Suburban Ballots in November -

The mayors of Collierville and Millington are running for re-election on the November ballot and as the noon Thursday, Aug. 18, filing deadline approaches for the Bartlett, Germantown, Collierville and Millington municipal ballots the two mayors have challengers.

85. Grizzlies Officially Sign Conley to Long-Term Contract -

Mike Conley said "it's great to be back" Thursday, July 14, after signing a multi-year contract to remain with the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Per team policy, details of the contract were not released Thursday afternoon, but it has been widely reported the Grizzlies offered their starting point guard a maximum five-year deal for $153 million.

86. Early Voting Opens For The Aug. 4 Election -

Early voting opens Friday, July 15, in advance of the Aug. 4 election day in Shelby County and across Tennessee.

The first day of early voting will be at a single location, the Shelby County Office Building, 157 Poplar Ave., but expands to 21 satellite locations across Shelby County on Monday.

87. Parsons a Plum Terrific Shooter -

Anna is a 29-year-old Grizzlies fan and she had gathered with other Grizzlies fans in the Grand Lobby of FedExForum to meet forward Chandler Parsons. Well, maybe not meet him – although Parsons was generous about signing autographs and letting fans take selfies with him – but at least get a glimpse of the most significant free agent to leave the competition and come to Memphis.

88. Grizzlies Introduce Free Agent Signee Chandler Parsons -

Fans who had gathered in the lobby of FedExForum began cheering as soon free agent signee Chandler Parsons came into view – wearing a plum suit – and walking with Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace toward a table where they would sit and conduct a historic press conference.

89. Conley + Parsons = Renewed Belief for Grizz -
