Re: “Bickerstaff’s Bad Habits Bite Again Against Boston

I had some of the same thoughts while watching the Grizzlies blow the big lead to the Celtics. If the vets aren't doing a noticeably better job than Jaren Jackson Jr., why not let the promising rookie stay on the floor? Granted, he might make a mistake or two. But he has the talent and athletic ability to make plays (on both ends of the court) that the vets on this team simply can't make, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley included. Plus letting Jaren play during crunch time of close games against teams like the Celtics would probably help speed his development. Would love to hear Coach Bickerstaff's take on this.

Re: “Report: Memphis Internet Slowest in the Country

This seems to beg an obvious question: Why? What's lacking in Memphis that makes us have the slowest internet in the country? I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a techie. So I'd welcome a fairly simple explanation from anyone who can answer that question. Seriously.

Re: “Green Book

Hmm...That's interesting. I found the movie to be much, much less ephemeral than "Sorry to Bother You," which I think was over hyped...Folks, don't let Chris McCoy or any critic dissuade you from seeing this movie. "Green Book" is very good.

Re: “Gordon Ramsay's in Memphis to Save a Restaurant!

If he can transform Catfish Cabin, he'll make a believer out of me! Three or four decades ago, that place was borderline nice for a catfish fry house. But it morphed into a sad and undesirable restaurant that's not close to being on the radar of anyone I know, not even the avid catfish lovers.

Re: “LeMoyne-Owen receives donation at its gala

In other words, the college received a $250,000 grant from the county that wasn't approved by the full Shelby County Commission, right?

Re: “Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridges, and Lucy Dacus: boygenius

Great. I love Julien's music..But the obvious question that goes unanswered in this story is will the tour include a stop in Memphis? If so, when and where?

Re: “Man Arrested for Recording Police Interaction at Mall

GCobb, the problem with saying "if you don't want to be labeled as shady, don't go into the mall in groups with hoodies looking shady" is that "looking shady" is highly subjective. As we've seen time and time again in recent months, some folks seem to think that young black folks (especially males) always look shady and threatening no matter what they're wearing! Would the teens at Wolfchase Galleria have been arrested if they were white? I doubt it. You can call that playing the race card if you'd like. I'll call it the simple truth, even more and more so in Trump's America.
