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

The start of training camp was less than 24 hours away. With seven straight playoff appearances behind them, the Grizzlies had a track record of substance. True, they would be without half of the Core Four, Zach Randolph and Tony Allen having been allowed to walk and sign elsewhere.

2. Grizzlies About to Lose Evans, But Memphis Super Bowl Victory Just Hours Away -

Thanks, Tyreke. That’s all we can really say. As of this writing, the Grizzlies had not yet traded Tyreke Evans. But it was not a question of if, only a matter of when.

In fact, when the Grizzlies played at Indiana Wednesday, Jan. 31, Evans warmed up but did not play. Reportedly, he didn’t even stick around to watch the game. This is how it goes in the NBA as the Feb. 8 trade deadline draws near. Protect the asset you intend to move. Don’t take any chances.

3. Mediocre Memphis No Match for UC; Grizzlies’ Mike Conley Out for Season -

After a second double-digit loss to Cincinnati this season, the Memphis Tigers are in the mushy, mediocre middle of the American Athletic Conference.

The Bearcats were No. 9 in the AP poll at the time of their 62-48 victory over the Tigers Saturday at FedExForum. It was their 12th victory in a row and raised their overall record to 19-2, their league-leading conference mark to 8-0.

4. 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. Also the applications are available at the same time – Monday morning at 10 a.m. – for the open enrollment at any other SCS school that has available space. Those were some hardcore campers that in some cases had been at this for a couple of generations. Persisting through barcodes and a 99.9 percent probability that their first choice of school would happen without the tent, generator and heaters.

5. Mediocre Memphis No Match for UC; Grizzlies' Conley Out for Season -

After a second double-digit loss to Cincinnati this season, the Memphis Tigers are in the mushy, mediocre middle of the American Athletic Conference.

The Bearcats were No. 9 in the A.P. poll at the time of their 62-48 victory over the Tigers Saturday at FedExForum. It was their 12th victory in a row and raised their overall record to 19-2, their league-leading conference mark to 8-0.

6. Rookie Recognizes It’s About More Than Recognition -

First, you have to love the name of the event: the 2018 Rising Stars Challenge. And that the Memphis Grizzlies will be represented at the NBA All-Star weekend in Los Angeles.

Rookie forward Dillon Brooks, a native of Ontario, Canada, will play for the World team against the United States on Feb. 16. Among the other players chosen for the game that features rookies and sophomores: Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Utah’s Donovan Mitchell, Boston’s Jayson Tatum, the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, and Chicago’s Lauri Markkanen.

7. NBA Coaches Often ‘Interim’ -

In one sense, maybe just about every NBA head coach not named Gregg Popovich should have the word “interim” in his job title. Certainly in Memphis the position of head coach is a lot closer to being an adjunct member of the faculty rather than a tenured professor.

8. Sports Notebook: Z-Bo returns, Memphis FB adds four, Jeremiah Martin hurt in loss -

After the Grizzlies decided not to bring back Zach Randolph for this season, one thing was sure: When he returned to FedExForum in another uniform he would get a rousing reception.

The fans did not disappoint as Randolph came back with the Sacramento Kings last Friday night. They gave Z-Bo a standing ovation, the Grizzlies offered up a well-done video tribute, and Randolph hugged everybody from Marc Gasol and Mike Conley to arena workers.

9. SPORTS NOTEBOOK -

After the Grizzlies decided not to bring back Zach Randolph for this season, one thing was sure: When he returned to FedExForum in another uniform he would get a rousing reception.

The fans did not disappoint as Randolph came back with the Sacramento Kings last Friday night. They gave Z-Bo a standing ovation, the Grizzlies offered up a well-done video tribute, and Randolph hugged everybody from Marc Gasol and Mike Conley to arena workers.

10. Grizzlies Down Knicks Behind Evans’ Double-Double -

Tyreke Evans continued his strong play, scoring 23 points and handing out 10 assists as the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the New York Knicks 105-99 Wednesday night, Jan. 17, at FedExForum.

The Grizzlies (15-28) have won two straight and six of their last 11 games.

11. MLK50 Weekend, Martin’s Mindset, NFL Mock Draft -

The MLK50 events around Monday’s Grizzlies-Lakers game will include NBA commissioner Adam Silver and NBA Players Association executive director Michele Roberts touring the National Civil Rights Museum and joining players Mike Conley and Brooks Lopez and retired WNBA star Swin Cash in a discussion: “MLK50: Where do we go from here?”

12. Winning Still Feels Good, Even If ‘Tanking’ is More Productive -

The big man sat at his locker with a somber look on his face. He spoke just above a whisper.

He had scored 29 points on the night, 14 in the fourth quarter when he had hit all four threes he took. He didn’t have much to say about that.

13. OU Guard Young an Intriguing Lottery Prospect; Tigers Win; Conley Vows Return -

Do you have Trae Young fever? Does just considering the possibility of the freshman Oklahoma Sooners point guard in a Grizzlies uniform inspire a rapid heartbeat, cause you to break out in a sweat, and dream of a massive turnaround as soon as next season?

14. Grizzlies Top Clippers 115-112 Before Starting Five-Game West Coast Trip -

To finally reach double-digits wins, the Memphis Grizzlies had to put up a season-high 115 points and hang on at the end after a 16-point fourth-quarter lead melted down to three points.

But the Grizzlies managed to pull it off, beating the Los Angeles Clippers 115-112 on Saturday, Dec. 23, at FedExForum.

15. Grizzlies’ Conley Out Until Sometime in 2018 -

The Memphis Grizzlies’ latest medical update indicates point guard Mike Conley is not close to returning to the lineup.

16. Mismatch: Fizdale and Gasol Should Have Worked, But Didn’t -

There’s no way to prove this, but I believe it: if David Fizdale and Marc Gasol never had been part of the same team, they would have respected each other from afar.

They might have even wondered about working together and wished for it.

17. Grizzlies’ Conley Out Until Sometime in 2018 -

The Memphis Grizzlies’ latest medical update indicates point guard Mike Conley is not close to returning to the lineup.

18. Last Word: Grizz Speculation, SCS Grade Floors and Cedar Heights -

Grizz lose to the Wizards 93-87 in Washington. And ESPN columnist Zach Lowe says the team has lost its identity as well as a lot of games. CBSSports reports Marc Gasol is open to a trade but will not request one. And if you are looking to go far afield with the theories, here’s one from a Dallas Mavericks fansight, mavsmoneyball, that includes a really good graphic on the salaries of Grizz players.

19. 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.

20. Last Word: Haslam and Cohen on Tax Reform, More than Food and Charles McNutt -

For some of you this is not the week before the week before Christmas. It is Star Wars week, as the latest sequel in the sci-fi series begins its run in theaters across the country. Along those lines, there is a social media slide show of 1970s images of George Lucas telling the story of what an uphill climb the original Star Wars was – the making and the distribution. And around Planet Memphis, the premiere certainly wasn’t that big a deal. There was an advance screening at the old Memphian theater – now the Circuit Playhouse – that didn’t draw a whole lot of attention.

21. 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.

22. Grizzlies Stop Losing Streak at 11, But Victories Remain Elusive -

Perhaps Tom Thibodeau saw it coming. His young Minnesota Timberwolves, though not short on talent, do not yet consistently devote themselves to defense. They were playing for a second straight night and they were on the road at FedExForum.

23. Grizzlies Drop Ninth Straight, Conley Out 2-3 More Weeks -

The Memphis Grizzlies’ first game after the firing of coach David Fizdale brought the same result as the previous eight: a loss, this time 104-95 at San Antonio on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Center Marc Gasol, who was in the middle of the Fizdale firestorm because the coach was dismissed less than 24 hours after Gasol had been benched for the fourth quarter vs. Brooklyn and then voiced his displeasure, scored 10 points with seven assists and six rebounds vs. the Spurs. Gasol (3,732) also passed Zach Randolph as the franchise’s all-time leader in made field goals.

24. Producing Wins Was Lacking Under Fizdale, Grizz GM Says -

The day after the Memphis Grizzlies fired coach David Fizdale just 19 games into his second season, general manager Chris Wallace rejected the notion that center Marc Gasol was a “coach-killer” and said more went into the decision to change coaches than one fractured relationship.

25. Grizzlies’ Firing of David Fizdale Stamps This as Marc Gasol’s Team -

Maybe it would have happened anyway. Rumors were rampant on Saturday that Grizzlies coach David Fizdale was coaching for his job, that an eighth straight loss to Brooklyn on Sunday could mean the end.

26. Grizzlies Fire David Fizdale, Name Bickerstaff Interim Coach -

ESPN.com and the Sporting News are reporting David Fizdale has been fired as coach of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Speculation about his termination began building as the holiday weekend arrived and Memphis continued to lose to inferior opponents like the Dallas Mavericks and most recently, the Brooklyn Nets. Things really got ugly when Fizdale sat star center Marc Gasol for the fourth quarter of the Sunday night game against the Nets and Gasol publicly said he was hurt by the decision not to play him.

27. Grizzlies Reeling, Lose Fifth Straight to Portland -

The Grizzlies’ fifth straight loss, and their eighth in the last 10 games, had its share of ugliness. Being outrebounded by Portland 60-35 was ugly. Shooting 38.4 percent and 26.7 percent from 3-point range (8 of 30) was hardly a thing of beauty.

28. Conley Out Indefinitely With Injuries -

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley will be shut down for at least the next two weeks because of a sore left heel and Achilles. Conley had missed two of the team’s first 14 games be-cause of the soreness, including the team’s loss to Indiana on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

29. Grizzlies PG Conley Out for Two Weeks and Counting -

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley will be shut down for at least the next two weeks because of a sore left heel and Achilles. Conley had missed two of the team’s first 14 games because of the soreness, including the team’s loss to Indiana on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

30. Last Word: 2018 Head Start, Tax Reform Bill Votes and Tigers Basketball in Decline -

Can you smell the paper? Friday is the first day that candidates in the 2018 elections can start picking up qualifying petitions for their place on the ballot – in this case the May county primary elections in Shelby County. Here is the scene setter.

31. Timekeeper -

A minute here. A minute there. Just 14 games into the Grizzlies’ 82-game regular season trek, coach David Fizdale is already trying to steal time, to manage minutes, and, yes, trying to make the best calculated decisions he can when weighing the chance to win a game today vs. the potential tax that might be assessed tomorrow.

32. The Grizzlies’ $3.3 Million Steal, Tyreke Evans, Playing Toward a Payday -

The Grizzlies didn’t quite score enough points in losing 110-103 in Milwaukee to finish 2-3 on a five-game road stretch. But not because Tyreke Evans didn’t try to carry the Grizzlies to victory yet again.

33. 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.

34. Josh Pastner Under NCAA Microscope -

Former University of Memphis basketball coach Josh Pastner has been accused of being complicit in extra benefits provided to at least two Georgia Tech players and to former Tiger player Markel Crawford.

35. After Hot Start, Grizzlies Show Cracks In Foundation -

As calculated decisions go, it seemed like a good one. Probably, it was a smart decision despite the unhappy result.

With the Grizzlies wrapping up a homestand, coach David Fizdale determined the last game against the Orlando Magic was an opportune time to get point guard Mike Conley and his sore Achilles a little extra rest before starting a five-game road trip.

36. 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.

37. Grizzlies Rally Late To Surprise Rockets -

The Memphis Grizzlies are off to a 3-0 start after going into Houston and beating the Rockets 98-90 on Monday, Oct. 23. The Grizzlies closed the game on a 20-2 run.

“When you can trust your defense is going to be there at the end of the game, you don’t have to put as much pressure on your offense,” said center Marc Gasol, who led the Grizzlies with 26 points.

38. Grizzlies Run Past Golden State, 111-101 -

When it was done, when the Memphis Grizzlies had defeated the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors 111-101 Saturday night at FedExForum, and Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant had been ejected, there was a lot of explaining to do.

39. 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?

40. 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.

41. 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.

42. Report: Grizzlies Roster Won't Include Baldwin, Zagorac -

Former Vanderbilt guard Wade Baldwin, who was the Memphis Grizzlies’ first-round pick and the 17th overall player selected in the 2016 NBA Draft, will not make the team, league sources told ESPN. In addition to the team’s plan to waive Baldwin, they apparently will do the same with forward Rade Zagorac, a second-round choice (35th overall) in the 2016 NBA Draft.

43. Last Word: Tigers Make Top 25, Pfizer's Next Tax Break and Shepherds Creek -

The Tigers make the top 25 ESPN Power Rankings for college football with the Liberty Bowl victory Saturday over Navy 30 – 27. And Tigers coach Mike Norvell responds to the pre-game arrest of a player on a rape charge.

44. 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.

45. Last Word: Athens Bound, The Amazon Campaign and All Things Grizz -

This may be the most covered meeting of the Tennessee Historical Commission ever – the meeting Friday in Athens, Tennessee where Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland will attempt to make the case for the commission granting him permission to remove the statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest in Health Sciences Park. The chairman of the commission has already told Strickland in writing that the commission will not take up the matter – not even discuss it. Strickland hopes he will at least be heard. And he says the city should have a decision by mid-November and is adamant that this cannot be put off into the new year.

46. 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:

47. 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.

48. 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.

49. Mid-South Fair to Host Free Grizzlies-Hustle Scrimmage -

As part of the Mid-South Fair, the Memphis Grizzlies and their G League affiliate Memphis Hustle will hold a free-to-the-public team scrimmage and practice Saturday, Sept. 30, from noon to 1 p.m. at Landers Center, 4560 Venture Drive, in Southaven.

50. Grizzlies, JaMychal Green Agree to Two-Year Deal -

It took until after the start of training camp, but the Memphis Grizzlies and power forward JaMychal Green have reached agreement on a two-year contract worth more than $17 million, according to The Vertical.

51. Mid-South Fair to Host Free Grizzlies-Hustle Scrimmage -

As part of the Mid-South Fair, the Memphis Grizzlies and their G League affiliate Memphis Hustle will hold a free-to-the-public team scrimmage and practice Saturday, Sept. 30, from noon to 1 p.m. at Landers Center, 4560 Venture Drive, in Southaven.

52. For Fizdale, Conley, Speaking Out Is Part of The Job Now -

This conversation? No, they didn’t imagine it. Grizzlies coach David Fizdale and point guard Mike Conley did not enter the NBA thinking they would someday be talking about national protests, a president that shoots from the lip, or Confederate statues in Memphis.

53. 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.

54. Grizzlies, JaMychal Green Agree to Two-Year Deal -

It took until after the start of training camp, but the Memphis Grizzlies and power forward JaMychal Green have reached agreement on a two-year contract worth more than $17 million, according to The Vertical.

55. High-Def Experience Awaits Grizzlies, Tigers Fans -

The Memphis Grizzlies recently held a small reception at FedExForum to show off improvements, and the biggest one – literally – was a new video board hanging over the court that offers four times the amount of display space as the previous scoreboard.

56. 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.

57. 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.

58. 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.

59. Will Grizzlies Have A Leg to Stand On? -

David Fizdale was eloquent as he again stated the city of Memphis should remove its Confederate statues. Chris Wallace appeared to have lost weight, an executive expression that this team will be ready for training camp in a few weeks.

60. 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?

61. 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.

62. 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.

63. Last Word: Rumors, The Return of Tyreke Evans and Broadband in Millington -

There is a popular saying attributed to Winston Churchill that goes like this: “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Even before social media, that was certainly the case in this part of the world called Memphis. The part of our history that doesn’t fit in books is littered with rumors that turned the city upside down in a much shorter period of time than it took to repair the damage done. That is what happened this weekend with Memphis Light Gas and Water.

64. 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.

65. 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.

66. 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.

67. Last Word: Corporate Musical Chairs, Another Dollar General and Ronnie Grisanti -

The three-way deal by which Memphis-based Fred’s was to buy hundreds of Rite-Aid stores from Walgreens just keeps getting worse for Fred’s even though the deal happened last week without Fred’s. An analyst says Fred’s got cut out because of questions about the corporation’s viability to enter into what is an ambitious change of course for the company on a large scale.

68. June 30-July 6, 2017: This week in Memphis history -

2016: On the first day of the NBA’s free agency period, the Memphis Grizzlies offer point guard Mike Conley $153 million over five years to stay with the team – an NBA record contract. The same day in a related move, the Grizzlies come to terms with power forward Chandler Parsons on a four-year $94 million contract.

69. 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.”

70. 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.”

71. 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.

72. 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.

73. Grizz Rookie Wade Baldwin Learned He Had Much to Learn -

In his first NBA preseason game, 2016 first-round draft pick Wade Baldwin wowed his Grizzlies teammates. Everything he shot went in the basket (15 points on 5-for-5 shooting) and he played with force and athleticism that, in retrospect, led to some true hoops hyperbole.

74. As FESJC Turns 60, There's No Taking PGA Tour Event for Granted -

This year marks the FedEx St. Jude Classic’s 60th year in Memphis. For decades the annual PGA Tour stop has signaled the start of summer and the arrival of stars ranging from Lee Trevino and Jack Nicklaus to Greg Norman and Phil Mickelson.

75. Last Word: Carousel Preview, New Crime Stats and EDGE Does Multi-Family -

The group Friends of the Fairgrounds got together Thursday evening at the Children’s Museum of Memphis and got the first group tour of the Grand Carousel center under construction at CMOM. This is as the museum focuses more on fundraising for the $6 million project that has already raised the money for the restoration of the carousel itself and now sets about the task of paying for the building around it including a banquet hall. Here’s a look from our Facebook page with more to come on CMOM and the Fairgrounds for the Monday edition that will probably go up on line Friday.

76. The Press Box: Conley Finds His Best Game Starts with Him -

After Mike Conley signed the richest deal in NBA history last summer – five years and $153 million – his old coach with the Memphis Grizzlies, Lionel Hollins, made a couple of predictions during an interview on SiriusXM NBA Radio.

77. Last Word: BSMF, Budget Books and Milli Vanilli -

Three days of sun and mild temperatures for the Beale Street Music Festival. Not to be all “Dawn Lazarus” about the weather. Of course, it wasn’t just that way over Tom Lee Park. And many of us continue to find there is life outside after you have determined your festival days may be behind you. We were all over the place this weekend including Tom Lee Park and Shelby Farms Park and backyards and trails and on a rising river. Can you still claim you were at BSMF if you were within earshot of it?

78. 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.

79. 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.

80. 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.

81. 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.

82. Memphis United in Support of Grizzlies on National Playoffs Stage -

Yes, the Grizzlies’ 116-103 loss in Game 5 at San Antonio was disappointing. So step back a moment and remember the atmosphere at FedExForum – and across the city – during the two wins that briefly evened this first-round West Conference Playoff Series at 2-2.

83. Grizzlies Understand They Need to Improve to Win Game 5 -

The Grizzlies’ Game 4 overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs produced plenty of memorable moments. From Mike Conley’s 35 points and game-tying floater at the end of the fourth quarter to rookie Andrew Harrison’s come-from-behind block of Patty Mills by the rim to Marc Gasol’s game-winning shot over LaMarcus Aldridge.

84. Grizzlies Even Series with Spurs in Game 4 OT Victory -

It’s a series now. Check that, it’s more than a series.

It’s a gunfight minus the spoons. It’s the No. 7 seed Memphis Grizzlies having a real chance to take out the No. 2 San Antonio Spurs and the NBA’s preeminent coach and a cold-blooded superstar that almost single-handedly broke Bluff City hearts.

85. Grizzlies Beat Spurs 105-94 in Game 3 -

The tone had been set three nights earlier in San Antonio. First-year coach David Fizdale had watched his team not just get beat by the San Antonio Spurs, but in his view disrespected by the officials.

86. 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.

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.

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

92. 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.

93. 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.

94. 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.

98. 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.

99. 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.
