Grit, Grind, GRIZZ!:
When given the option of seeing a player step out of the shadows of insecurity and into the light of promise; thereby guiding his team to a nail biting win, or the option of watching a simple blowout, give me the nail biting win every time.
It’s moments like last night’s heroics by Mike Conley, and the emergence of Quincy Poindexter that make fans stay up in local pubs and overstay welcomes at friends’ homes on a regular basis. It only helps when you have former Grizzly fan favorites such as the seemingly annoyed OJ Mayo to play against to add to the competitive fires causing an inferno of passion for the game.
That’s exactly what the setting was for last night’s 102-99 win for your Memphis Grizzlies. Surprising fans both statistically and in regards to his seemingly new confidence in the Grizzlies system, was Quincy Poindexter who
led all scorers with 24 points. It was Coach Joerger’s confidence in Mike Conley though that seems to be a precursor to the vital role that he will play ...

Gilbert Arenas did not play in the NBA last season, yet reportedly took home more than $20 million thanks to a six-year, $111 million contract he signed with Washington in 2008. He was traded to Orlando in 2010 and was amnestied by the Magic in 2011. So he is being paid eight figures not to play.
But enough of that nonsense. Gilbert, figuring you may forget about with him sittin...
Never forget the Orlando Magic are paying Gilbert Arenas $22 million this year. When you have bread like that, you can do what Arenas did and put up a photo on Instagram using a heavy wad of money as toilet paper. H/T CJZERO
Gilbert Arenas hasn’t been a relevant NBA play in years now, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still racking in the cash.
The Orlando Magic will pay Arenas $22-million dollars this season, and he’s not even on their roster.
So what do you do when you have a ton of free time and an influx of money? Wipe you a$$ with benjamins… duhh. Check out Arenas Instagram post:
While anyone who’s anyone has heard of Michael Jordan, I’ll bet only a handful of people have heard of Robert Pera. Yet the self-made, 35 year old billionaire, who recently purchased the Memphis Grizzlies, challenged #23 to a one-on-one game via Twitter. This came after Tony Allen cancelled a one-on-one match against Pera, which would’ve raised $100,000 for St. Jude Children’s...
Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera is starting just his second season as head of an NBA team, though that isn't stopping him from challenging the game's most iconic player.
Pera, who had a 1-on-1 preseason challenge against Grizzlies guard Tony Allen canceled several weeks ago, decided to seek a contest against Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan with $1...
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- What concerns Bucks coach Larry Drew the most isn't the fact his team blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter Saturday night, but that the whole team wasn't there for a valuable teaching moment.
As Milwaukee's new coach tries to establish a new culture with an entirely new offensive and defensive system, the Bucks have yet to have their full squad...
Gilbert Arenas making $22 million this year from the NBA for doing absolutely nothing. God Bless America and just in case you forgot, Gilbert wants to remind you he’s rich.
We all know that Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol is a low-post threat but did you know that he is one talented assist man?

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Basketball has taken Gary Neal many different places throughout the world, but his NBA career knew just one place as home. After finally getting his shot and proving himself as a valuable role player for three seasons in San Antonio, Neal ventured into free agency looking for something more.
Neal eventually landed on Milwaukee as the place where he hopes to...
Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera is starting his second season in charge of an NBA team and he's already calling out Michael Jordan.
Pera who had a 1-on-1 preseason challenge against Grizzlies guard Tony Allen canceled several weeks ago is seeking a game against Jordan with $1 million going to charity.
The challenge came in a Twitter exchange Monday where Pera...
Robert Pera challenged Michael Jordan to a charity game of one-on-one.
Pera is the 35-year-old owner of the Memphis Grizzlies.
“I think that’s comical,’’ Jordan said. “It didn’t make any sense. Why would I play one-on-one? It’s a no-win situation for me no matter what.”
Since the beginning of the Tim Duncan era in San Antonio, the San Antonio Spurs have been perennial title contenders, winners of 50-plus regular season games (except the 1999 lockout-shortened season) season-in and season-out, and made the postseason annually which included four NBA titles along the way.
