There's an NBA game in Memphis tonight. Dave Joerger is coming back for the first time, Rudy Gay is out due to injury. Those are worthwhile stories.
And then, there is freaking Mike Conley.
Mike Conley, who is returning early (although six weeks always felt a little bit long) from a BROKEN BACK. But should we be surprised? This is a man who played with a broken face. Who has played through an assortment of ailments throughout his career. This is a guy, along with Marc Gasol, where if the question regarding a potential return is related to "pain tolerance", he will almost always be back before most imagine he will be.
It is just another reason to look to our "conductor" as a leader on this team. He is a freaking warrior. Welcome back, Captain Clutch.
