Sometimes we forget how difficult the recruiting game is. There wasn’t a head coach who outworked Romar for Bird, but he still didn’t get the kid. It happens. I remember watching Romar watch Bird and No. 7 senior Aaron Gordon (San Jose, Calif./Bishop Mitty) last summer. He would actually be the last person to leave the gym just so he could get the extra face time with Bird and Gordon.
From ComcastTeds - Apologies. The PAC 12 channel is not currently available or scheduled to be available in Memphis at this time.
Andrew Hudson is a guy, I'd be remiss if skipped over him, he's up to almost 250 pounds now, he looks tremendous.
Brandon Roy can "double dip" on MIN & POR contracts after clearing amnesty waivers. @HoopStoryteller has the #s: "If he signs with Minnesota for $5 million in 2012-13, Portland can set off half of the difference between his new salary & what a minimum salary for a 1 year player would make. ($5,000,000 - $762,195) / 2, which is $2,118,903. Instead of Portland owing him the $16,460,538 that they current do, they would only owe him $14,341,635. Roy would make $19,341,635 combined from 2 teams."
MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES | GRADE: B
Round 1: Tony Wroten (25)
Round 2: None
Analysis: I have to confess that I secretly am pulling for Wroten. On potential, he's one of the five or six most talented players in this draft. If he ever gets it, he'll be one of the most exciting players in the league to watch. He is a dynamic passer, can get to the basket at will, and has elite size and athletic ability for his position. His recklessness on the court, his horrific shooting and his questionable leadership skills caused his stock to tank, but if he ever settles down and gets even a passable jumper like Rondo has developed, he will be the steal of the draft.
I don't think it was a big risk to take him where the Grizzlies did.
My hunch is they are a year away from seriously contending for a BCS berth.
"If you look at the tape, there's no question that he's the No. 2 back,"

Washington RB Chris Polk, a one-time USC commit, runs an unofficial 4.46
Just when you start feeling good about WSU fans they break out derisive chants that make you wince. Really Wazzu? Really? That crap is old. It's moronic and simple. No place for that in college athletics.
