It's just a Southern California Saturday at the grocery store - cantaloupe and kiwi and kumquats - when Jerome Stanley suddenly hears from his best friend, who's uncontrollably screeching into Stanley's cellphone: "They're all dead!"
Kevin Lipe: I think this move immediately makes the Grizzlies better. For years, every second Marc Gasol has spent off the court have been seconds that the Grizzlies hovered on the edge of collapse-or, in lots of cases, they flew right over the edge and started immediately sucking. With Kosta Koufos on the team, Marc Gasol shouldn't have to play 40 minutes a night anymore. It'll be the best thing that ever happened to Marc Gasol. He's probably throwing a Koufos party in Barcelona with Pau right now.
A piece on Erick Green from the Washington Post: click here.
As a junior at Millbrook High in 2008, when Green led the Pioneers to the first Virginia AA state title ever won by a Winchester school, Coach Scott Mankins had his star player wear a 20-pound vest during practice while dealing with constant double-teams to ensure he was being challenged.
