From Yahoo!, teams, players and their agents can all catch up with one another over a friendly cup of coffee, effective Wednesday (tomorrow). On Thursday, players can finally get back into their team's facilities. Time to get the shooting drills and wind sprints rolling!
Our friends over at Welcome to Loud City have put together a complete list of current NBA players who are playing overseas and listed where exactly they are playing.
Little to note for you Grizzlies fans, other than the Hamed Haddadi is playing in Iran. No real surprise. But it's an interesting list, nonetheless.
Our friends over at Welcome to Loud City passed this along.
Tony Allen passed out Ramen Noodles for Halloween, thanks to the lockout and lack of $$$. Love it! How can you not like Tony Allen? Someone needs to make the case against him. I can't imagine it can be done.
Love this story! Apparently, Jamaal Tinsley, 33, has entered himself into the NBDL Draft, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Tinsley was last seen in the NBA on our very own 2009-10 Grizzlies. We wish him well. Really.
The dudes over at 3 Shade of Blue asked a couple of Grizzlies writers, including Matt Moore (CBS and Harwood Paroxysm), Chris Herrington (Memphis Flyer) and myself, along with their excellent team of writers to answer a few Grizzlies-related questions.
This was a lot of fun, and is definitely worth a look.
And in case you didn't notice, ESPN has five, yes FIVE, Grizzlies listed among their Top 74 players in the NBA. Not too bad at all, if you ask me.
You had to see this one coming, no? Somebody had to step up for the lost money and wages for those indirectly affected by the NBA lockout. I guess it had to be Memphis, didn't it?
To be honest, there is a lot of lost wages and plenty of bills to be paid, that really aren't being talked about. This should at least shed light on the subject of lost revenues, not specific to the league or its players.
On an ESPN chat, Mike Conley spoke a bit about the team, his offseason and whether or not he plays Fantasy Football (really?). It's a 'fun' read, I suppose. Can't complain, though, most of these chats are softball-ish in their content.
Did think Conley saying he hasn't been tempted to play overseas was interesting...
