MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- There may or may not have been a promise. There are no guarantees. Jarell Martin, the Memphis Grizzlies' first-round draft pick, told NOLA.com after last week's NBA Draft that the Grizzlies told him they were going to pick him right where they did, at No. 25. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace was quick to point out after the draft there were no promises. At...

Usually, 6-foot-10 forwards don’t throw down the most athletic dunks, but don’t tell that to LSU’s Jarell Martin. The big Tiger intercepted a Florida pass near half court, and threw down this nasty between the legs dunk. Coaches would probably rather just have their players take the guaranteed dunk or layup, but Martin was able to pull off the dunk, so you can’t blame him...
One of Tuesday night’s best college basketball games was between the LSU Tigers and the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The Tigers battled back from a 12 point halftime deficit to take down Texas Tech in overtime, 69-64. While LSU was making its comeback, forward Jarell Martin had one of the most impressive dunks of the young season. Martin got the ball at half court, dribbled, took off...
