-Obviously not groundbreaking news by now, but everyone should read Peter Keating's breakdown of the Griz and their #1 franchise designation from ESPN.
Thoughts: It's awesome. Read it.
-The folk over at hoopsworld.com have a thorough (but obvious) preview of the Memphis Grizzlies up on their site.

-Sportskeeda.com asks if Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph can lead us to glory?
Thoughts: I don't know, but I think Marc Gasol and Mike Conley can.
-Mike Conley is hosting his Fifth Annual Bowl-n-Bash event over at Billy Hardwick's this Saturday. It's $125 for yourself or $500 for a 4-person team, which is like saying "these rolls are $1 a piece, or 10 for $10." But in all seriousness this is a great event run by Mike for charity.
Thoughts: Bowling and "absence of alcohol" go together for me like Ryan Seacrest on TV and "not being able to find the remote control."

Thoughts: It'd make way more sense for the Hibachi master to go play in Japan.
-The Memphis Grizzlies are the 13th most watchable NBA team, according to USA Today.
Thoughts: Pshh, they skyrocket up this list without the millions of morons that just want to watch one player try and score 50 points every night.
