"I don't know enough to comment on it, but needless to say I'm concerned about it...We're at an information-gathering stage at this time"Chris Wallace on the Zach Randolph Incident
We're way beyond our years basketball-wise. The bulk of our youth was in our bench, and that hurt us trying to teach those guys quickly. We didn't really have anyone to come off the bench other than those young guys.Rudy Gay
Ronnie Brewer took another giant step toward what looks like his imminent return when he played in a full-contact, 3-on-3 game Thursday on the Grizzlies' FedExForum practice court. Brewer has said that his partially torn right hamstring is healing ahead of schedule. He's officially missed three weeks today, and I'd probably put the target date for his return at March 16 when the Griz host the Chicago Bulls.
In what I assume is the first time in the eight year history of the Memphis Grizzlies Hasheem Thabeet's basketball career, he finally looked like he belonged: he didn't overmatch his opponents, but he wasn't overmatched, either. It seemed, for once, he was playing with his contemporaries. This doesn't necessarily sound like a ringing endorsement of Thabeet because, well, it isn't. It's also not meant to tear him apart, because again, that's not what I'm attempting to do. He simply looked like an average D-League player.

Reserve forward Darrell Arthur has been cleared to begin full-contact practices with the Grizzlies - the last major step toward his return to the team's rotation. Arthur, who hasn't played this season because of surgery to repair a pectoral muscle, will be able to participate without restrictions Wednesday or Thursday. The Griz play tonight at Cleveland.

Although the Grizzlies' interest in Iverson began with Heisley's strong insistence, Heisley contends he never would have sealed the deal without consent from general manager Chris Wallace and head coach Lionel Hollins.http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2009/sep/22/grizzlies-owner-michael-heisley-has-high-hopes-all
