In his excellent Grizzlies blog (accessible on our site here
), the Flyer
's Chris Herrington has noted the disproportionate post-lottery gnashing and wailing coming out of cities like Boston and suggested the obvious: That the Grizzlies were the NBA's big losers Tuesday night. Well, it seems that the media elsewhere is finally catching on. Here's this AOL lament: Ã¢â¬ï¿½How Bad Are Things in Memphis?Ã¢â¬ï¿½
Here's the money quote from the Celtics' Tommy Heinsohn: "One guy told me tonight that if his team didn't get one of those top two picks, his team had a serious chance of going out of business. Now that's tough. At least (the Celtics) arenÃ¢â¬â¢t in that situation."
Anybody got any idea as to who that guy might be?
