BASKETBALL DIARIES

Greg Graber and Sanford Shefsky bought the domain name memphisgrizzlies.org for a pittance ($35) then crowed (jokingly, they would later claim) that they would sell it to the Memphis Grizzlies for millions. MILLIONS! BWA-HA-HA! They have finally relinquished the name to the NBA franchise for just a little less than planned. In what may very well be the worst business negotiation since the purchase of Manhattan, Graber and Shefsky will each receive a set of six Memphis Grizzlies bobblehead dolls. The two men will also co-write a weekly column called The Grizzlie [sic] Growl for the team s official Web site, www.grizzlies.com. First column topic: How we turned a pretty bad idea into $10 in cold hard cash.
