2012-2013 Defensive Player of the Year!

  • GASOL DPOY! It's been a long time since Mike Miller took the 6th man award for the Grizzlies. Before that it was Shane Battier and Pau Gasol for Rookie of the Year. And a Coach of the Year for Hubie Brown. Yep, it's been a long time!

    This should be motivation for the game tomorrow night! Ignite the Grindhouse with a trophy presentation. Then clip those Floppers! let's win the next 16 quarters of this series and never look back!

    Go Grizz!

    Grind it out

  • Grizzlies offering free beer? – in honor of tax day!? Monday April 15th they giving away beer at the Forum in Memphis, TN! GOODBYE, BLUE MONDAY!
  • Tour de Grizz

    Always a great affair! Even more critical is the home game Saturday night against the Clippers. Home court advantage in round1 may be at stake! How do I put this nicely? "PAYBACK IS A BITCH!"

    Track Meet!

  • How far do you run in different sports?
    Many NBA teams have started using a system called SportVU, a specialized motion tracking system that enabling teams to get far more detailed stats about their players. In the 2012 season, the player that ran the farthest per game was Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls, who averaged 2.72 miles per game.

    This is pretty fascinating to me as an avid runner. I always wondered how much you run in various sports. I like to shoot hoops by myself for the most part, and chase rebounds from all my misses. It seems to really help my running and coniditoning too. So when they refer to a game as a "track meet" between teams in the NBA - you know it. 2.72 miles per game of mostly sprinting? That is impressive.
    I would not want to face Mike Conley, Jr.; Tony Allen; Jerryd Bayless, and Tony Wroten in a foot race. They would smoke me I"m sure! Now a half-marathon? Maybe I'd have a chance if they didn't prepare for it at all! Persistence hunting! Yo! I ain't never going bear hunting though. I love them too much. Check this track meet:

    Grizzlies. Almost at the second season. Let's get a little win streak going through tonight at Staples and push those Lakers out of the 8th spot.
