My wife is from Oklahoma City. I’m from Memphis. We live in Memphis. Needless to say, the current NBA Playoff series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Memphis Grizzlies is creating a bit of tension in our house.
In order to vent some frustrations, here are our thoughts on the other’s fandom. Read more
What up Los Angeles? What’s good with ya? You guys feeling “hella” good about the game tonight? You got your Cali swag on point for tonight’s game?
Well… you might want to pump the brakes. Read more
There is a particularly famous episode of Seinfeld in which Jerry sees a painted portrait of Kramer (called, um, “The Kramer”) and remarks:
“He’s a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet I can’t look away”.
Perhaps there is no better description of the national sentiment towards Ole Miss shooting guard Marshall Henderson. Read more
Wikki Wikki Wild Wild West! Now… time for some real fun. First, here were my predictions from a November 2nd blog post previewing the West: Read more
At the beginning of the NBA season I wrote a post on this blog with my predictions for each conference. In that post on November 1st, here’s where I had the Eastern Conference: Read more
As we recently learned from the commercial ESPN that is sure to air nonstop for the next few weeks, obsessing over your bracket is purely patriotic. Seeing as I’m a patriot, I’ve decided to share my bracket with you all today. It’s generally speaking very conservative, because I feel like people get way to upset happy in the early rounds with their picks. However, as someone who usually does very well in bracket challenges, I feel very good about my initial set of picks. I’m sure some of these may change as I continue to stare at and make little tweaks to my bracket, but these picks I’m about to share give you a good indication of what I’m thinking. You should also be able to click on the bracket above to print out a blank bracket to fill in for yourself. I’m a big fan of the traditional handwritten bracket. It’s way more fun that way. Read more
As you may or may not have read in my post “Letter to My Wife”, I am making it my own personal goal to see my Memphis Grizzlies play in every away arena in the NBA.
I have already knocked out Oklahoma City and Boston, so this past week I made the trek down to Dallas to see them take on Dirk Nowitizki and the Mavs. Read more
Fans of the Memphis Grizzlies have gotten spoiled quickly. We went from PLEASE MAKE THE PLAYOFFS to PLEASE WIN A PLAYOFF GAME to WIN A DAMN TITLE! I can’t say this process happened overnight, but it’s amazing how the darkness of the bad memories fades when the present potential seems so overwhelmingly bright.
At the moment, the Grizzlies are sitting 4th in the Western Conference at 22-10 despite playing the 7th toughest schedule so far. Overall the Grizz have won 35 of their last 48 games dating back to the end of March. So why change anything??? I’m glad you asked. Read more
It is finals time for most schools around the nation and so that means a low number of basketball games going on this week. With that in mind it is test time for our readers. Did Memphis make a mistake in going to the Big East? Read more
The Dish is upset because it gave you bad information for the Memphis vs Ohio game. I was right in that if Memphis could stay in single digit turnovers they could win the game, but I was wrong in that Ohio lost by 20. Terrible prediction there on my part, and I do apologize to the fan base. Read more
