Again, we're a bit light on the Memphis Grizzlies news now that we've been bounced from the playoffs, but I'll submit that we're still better off having a silent May. Meaning, we care not for your NBA Draft mock! Of course I kid, since even as we don't have a first round draft pick we NBA diehards do care about what happens at the bottom of the standings since, over time, those moves ultimately creep up on you.
This morning We have a few Grizzlies nuggets. One which is really an overt attempt at cashing in on our playoff run, while the other is a bit of disbelief that, despite the fact that we took the Thunder to 7 games, one future NBA star remains shocked that we knocked off the San Antonio Spurs in the first place.
Shockingly, Greg Monroe was, yet wasn't shocked by the Grizzlies playoff success.
Enjoy a $28 Memphis Grizzlies "Macho Mug"! Or, save your pennies for some forthcoming SOV mugs(?)!
Please, don't let this be on our behalf!: Parker says that the Spurs' championship goals are dead and that age has finally caught up with the Spurs.
Set to the tune of "Welcome Back Kotter": Udonis Haslem played 23 minutes, scoring 13 points and grabbing 5 rebounds. He was 3-of-3 from the charity stripe and played some amazing D.
Sigh: "Bill Russell is getting his statue after 40 years. Laker immortal Jerry West waited 37 years for his statue. My wait has only been 22 yrs. Rumor has it that I will be getting a statue. A caveat for all my fans-don't hold your breath. Lakers don't care about me."
Yes!: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar thinks there should be a statue of him outside Staples Center and is determined to whine about it publicly.
Boom goes the dynamite!
Consider this a Tom Thibodeau bump. Boston assistants are sexy!: We knew that Lawrence Frank was interviewing for the Houston position, but now it sounds like he's also looking at the Warriors job.
Popeye Jones played for 7 NBA teams in 10 years. Would you believe he was never a Grizzly?
