Editorial: Memphis restaurant denying Parker service still comes up empty in win column

I love the atmosphere and competitiveness of the NBA playoffs. There's really nothing like it. I also don't mind some friendly trash talk among Spurs fans and fans of opposing teams, and I'm all about a city getting behind their team. But at some point, there's a line to where fun and games and a little friendly competition ends and unnecessary behavior starts...
