As reported last week by the Flipside’s own western Tennessee/eastern Arkansas sports beat writer, the Memphis Grizzles franchise was in a state of disarray after an unprecedented run to the Western Conference Finals (for the original story, click here). Reports are now surfacing that Grizzlies players have been put at ease after being unceremoniously dismissed from the playoffs after a 4-game sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs.
“I feel like I’m a month behind on my to-do list, but it is nice that its finally over. I’m definitely glad we got everything wrapped up before June,” said Memphis power forward Zach Randolph. “And guess what else? I’m not even disappointed that I missed Fast and Furious 6 last week, cause its turns out they are making a seventh installment. With Jason Statham. Best…day…EVER!!!”
Memphis sports fans will now collectively turn their attention to the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds, as they try to extend their 2.5 game lead in the Pacific Coast League’s American Northern division.
