Memphis Grizzlies Go Global 

While University of Memphis players have been terrorizing Beale Street, several current and former Grizzlies are making noise internationally.

Pau Gasol has been dominant in leading Spain to a 2-0 start in the Eurobasket tournament, without the help of new Griz signee Juan Carlos Navarro, who is out with a minor injury.

Eurobasket hasn’t gone so well for new Griz center Darko Milicic, who was caught in a profanity-laced tirade following a one-point loss to Greece.

On the other side of the world, Griz guard Mike Miller is now wearing gold after serving with Team USA. And, on the ex-Griz front, the unforgettable Jake Tsakalidis has taken his money and gone home, signing with the Greek Euroleague team Olympiacos, where he’ll be joined by former Griz teammate Lawrence Roberts and Memphis-raised dog-fighting enthusiast Qyntel Woods.
