Rick Trotter has been calling Memphis Grizzlies games since 2006, but the team announced they’d fired him this afternoon after the Shelby County Sheriff’s office put out a warrant for his arrest. The warrant lists three charges for photographing persons without consent, issued today.
The Sacramento Kings announced this afternoon that they’d hired former Memphis Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger. Since it’s the Kings, you probably reflexively think this is a dumb move, but it’s actually the opposite!
Having served Dave Joerger a cold supper of radioactive gunge and watched him lick the bowl clean, the front office of the Memphis Grizzlies announced his firing today. First as an assistant, Joerger had been with the organization for the past nine seasons, a.k.a. the bulk of the Grizzlies’ relevance as a professional…
The Spurs finished their thoroughly unsurprising sweep of a bunch of guys wearing Grizzlies jerseys today, backhoeing a final heap of dirt onto Memphis’ season. In the final moments of the 116-95 thumping, Grizzlies fans stood and applauded their team’s efforts, which is usually the sort of shit you do for no one past…
ABC/ESPN’s broadcast of the Spurs-Grizzlies game in Memphis was interrupted suddenly early in the second quarter as what Mike Tirico described as a “power surge” brought the game to a halt.
Grizzlies mascot Grizz had a pro wrestling routine last season, and he’s back at it this year as he tormented a poor ersatz Spurs mascot during a timeout in tonight’s game three. It didn’t help Memphis much, but it’s fun to watch:
Matt Barnes has been suspended one game by the NBA for trying to chase John Henson down the tunnel of the Bradley Center after both were ejected on Thursday night. He’ll serve it tonight against the Clippers.
As the Memphis Grizzlies undergo an injury crisis on the court, behind the scenes things seem even messier. According to a report from Brian Windhorst and Zach Lowe. Grizzlies minority owner Steve Kaplan’s plan to sell his stake in the team and buy into the Minnesota Timberwolves has been complicated and ultimately…
If the Cavaliers were sending cryptic tweets before losing to a Memphis Grizzlies team missing most of the players you’ve heard of, I can’t even imagine what they’re going to send out tonight.
The trade-deadline acquisition of Lance Stephenson represented a wager by the Grizzlies that he was misused and underused, that they would be the ones to figure out how best to deploy him effectively, something no one’s been able to figure out since the Pacers.
Could’ve thought this one through a little more, maybe.
The Grizzlies shot 80% on the Nuggets in the first quarter but Rocky and his Nuggets fan cohorts shot 100% on silly string ambushes for the night.
The NBA suspended Memphis forward Matt Barnes for two games for an offseason altercation, in which Barnes reportedly drove to Los Angeles to confront Knicks coach Derek Fisher over his relationship with Barnes’s estranged wife. Yesterday, the league announced it has fined Barnes another $35,000, because he just won’t…
Color commentator Glenn Consor came up from the rear of Comcast SportsNet’s class today to fill Phil Chenier’s seat, and might have made an ass out of himself during tonight’s Wizards broadcast. Washington came back from behind to beat the Grizzlies tonight; we’re happy to make Consor the butt of your jokes in the…
Memphis Grizzlies coach Dave Joeger wanted to call a timeout here, as evidenced by the frantic tapping of his shoulders as Matt Barnes drove up the court. But Matt Barnes thrives on chaos, and doesn’t even need to use his couple of additional seconds to get closer to the basket. Nah, pulling up from half-court is just…
You probably missed the Suns-Grizzlies game while watching football yesterday, and that’s totally fine, but you should check out the buzzer-beating alley-oop that won the game for the Grizzlies. It was a crazy play. It was so crazy, in fact, that it inspired Vince Carter to do some slappin’.
As game-winners go, a 180 reverse alley-oop over and around a pair of defenders at home on a Sunday where your local NFL team scored 42 points and won is about as good as it gets. That’s what happened for the Grizzlies today.
Vince Carter has played a mere 101 minutes this year and has only hit seven threes, but this one should count double. The Grizzlies lost, but the Hawks didn’t hit any shots nearly as cool as this.
There’s been a terrible mistake. The AP, ESPN, even the NBA itself—they’re all recording the final score of last night’s Warriors-Grizzlies game as a 119-69 win for the Warriors, but clearly that is the score of some kid’s video game. I mean, ha ha, 119-69, get the fuck outta here, who would even believe that shit.
