It’s a word mostly unfamiliar to the Memphis Grizzlies, as the postseason once was. A word that implies promises unfulfilled and further yearning. A word that bears a sudden meaning to the thousands of faithful supporters that pack FedEx Forum – sorry, The Grindhouse – to sacrifice their vocal cords and towel—waving elbows for this [...]
An NBA report circulated on Tuesday that said Gilbert Arenas was likely to join either the Lakers or Clippers if he ends up signing with an NBA team this season. The report wasn’t as notable to me because of its content, but because of the origin of report; it came from my auto mechanic.
This is a story about the way information spreads in 2012.
