Re: “Grizzlies Launch "Grind City" Branded Content Arm; Hire Chris Vernon

Writing your own story so you can control the narrative is NOT journalism, sorry. I think the public will see pretty quickly that this is PR and not reporting.

Re: “CA's Jason Smith leaving to host 92.9 ESPN midday show

Yet another dismaying example of how bad things have gotten in print journalism: A part-time gig as a local sports radio talk show host is apparently more lucrative and maybe just all around better these days than a full-time position as an established newspaper reporter. Definitely wasn't the case 20-30 years ago. My have times have changed.

Re: “Chris Vernon Out at 92.9 ESPN?

Long Duck would probably rather listen to Rain Man rave about "building your war chest" for football season using his lackluster betting service all while talking in his best marble-mouthed Haley Barbour/Morgan and Morgan For The People voice.

Long Duck Dong, you're " tired of hearing about his .......". Did it ever occur to you to change stations?

Re: “Chris Vernon Out at 92.9 ESPN?

Good riddance. Damn tired of hearing about his inedible sandwich & his unrequited (?) man-crush on tony "butterfingers" romo. his next gig will be either the 2-5am slot on some dumpy 5,000 watt Dallas radio station or will necessitate wearing a hairnet.

Re: “Chris Vernon Out at 92.9 ESPN?

That is unfortunate and I will miss his show. I only tuned in to 92.9 because of him, I thought he was good on the Grizzlies post-game shows and subsequently checked out his radio show. I am sure he will turn up somewhere good. An increased role with the Grizz broadcast team?

Addition by subtraction? What planet are you from? Verno is the best show going and it is not even close. By far best guests. Period.

"it appears"

That is pure corporate class. It appears he doesn't even know for certain that he's been fired.

Re: “Grizzlies announce 2016 preseason schedule

So the NBA now allows teams to play 6 preseason games? Used to be 8 but teams would schedule touring international teams that even in preseason, wasn't much of a game. Good for the NBA to reduce the preseason schedule. NFL.......you're next.

Re: “Stein: Mike Conley agrees to 5-year, $153mm deal with Grizzlies

Nightcrawler - A masterpiece of specious, illogical rant.
And if said NBA star had an IQ of 160, earned a dual degree in accounting and international finance from Columbia and an MBA from Harvard, and founded and ran a multi-$billion corporation with tens of thousands of employees and millions of customers, he'd be scum for asking $30 million a year.
How many times is his salary more than the ticket-takers and concession workers? Where are the moralists now?

Re: “Stein: Mike Conley agrees to 5-year, $153mm deal with Grizzlies

Imagine Conley's contract if 94.7 million Americans weren't out of the workforce?

If the said 94.7 million Americans were working and had discretionary dollars to spend for pro sports entertainment, 153M would be chump change.

Re: “Stein: Mike Conley agrees to 5-year, $153mm deal with Grizzlies

@Berclair: That does. $8mm was without Barnes' cap hold and $10mm is without Barnes and w/ waiving Vince Carter. James Ennis' deal doesn't affect cap space since they're taking his salary into the room exception.

Kevin,

You mentioned we are still $8-10 million under the cap. Does that include Parson's contract?

Re: “Stein: Mike Conley agrees to 5-year, $153mm deal with Grizzlies

Largest contract in NBA history. Only NBA players making 30M+ are Kobe, Jordan and now
Conley. Seriously, this is insane. Is he worth more than 15M what Raps are paying Derozen
on a 5 year deal? Payback from Conley Sr. for his last contract which was generally considered too low. Conley, slightly above average PG getting paid Kobe money.
