It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Talent-wise, Gilbert Arenas should still be playing the NBA. But outside factors (namely his immaturity) have resulted in him playing for the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball League. In China, Arenas has to be considered, arguably of course, to be one of the most talented player in the league. Former NBA stars Tracy McGrady and Stephon Marbury also play in the CBL. This past weekend, Arenas put a defender on his backside. It wasn’t because of an elbow or a crossover dribble, but rather a simple jab step. Arenas let his man fall to the deck, stepped back and hit the jumper. Propers to Hoops Hype for the video

The Grizzlies like Gay, his 18 points per game and winning attitude. What they dont like is the huge tax penalty that will result from his huge contract this summer.
So the Grizzlies made some calls,...

It's not often that a team with one of the best records in the NBA is trying to sell off its top scorer and arguably its best player, but that's what the Memphis Grizzlies are working on right now with F Rudy Gay.
You’re forgiven if you didn’t realize Gilbert Arenas is still playing pro ball, albeit in China for the Shanghai Sharks. Here he is jab-stepping his opponent to the floor and draining a three (via HoopsHype). Swag status: still phenomenal.
Wizards rookie guard Bradley Beal has not been mentioned in trade discussions with the Memphis Grizzlies involving swingman Rudy Gay, according to Beal’s agent, Mark Bartelstein.
The Memphis Commercial-Appeal reported Monday that the Grizzlies have “entertained” an offer from the Wizards that would include Beal in a larger package.”I’ve talked to both teams. There is absolutely...

According to a person with knowledge of those conversations, Gay is likely to remain a Grizzly through the end of this season. The message to Gay at the moment is that if he is dealt by the league’s Feb. 21 trade deadline, then the Griz will have been offered a no-brainer scenario.
For example, the Griz have entertained the Washington Wizards’ offer for Gay. The crux of that...
MEMPHIS – The last time the Los Angeles Clippers were seen in the FedExForum, they broke hearts last April by winning the seventh game of a Western Conference first-round playoff series over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Griz ran out of gas in that game. On Monday, though, in the same place against the same team, the Grizzlies were merely dead on arrival in their worst home performance...
