Grizzly Links: Greg Monroe Is/Isn't Shocked By the Grizzlies Playoff Success; Overpriced Mugs!

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.
