Yes, I've Been Very Busy

So, I understand you can see that I haven't posted in quite some time. I'm sure that it's been keeping you up at night, wondering just what I've been up to.

Well, it turns out that running a radio station can take up a good bit of time. With the addition of our new program and taking care of all necessary reports for the end of the year, I just couldn't make the trip over to the old blog page and put anything of substance down. Not that I was going with anything of substance to begin with.

Anyways, this is what I think:

Trade Pau. I understand that this position is nothing new. However, Chris Vernon asked Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace a question last week that referred to Wallace sitting in Boston for a long time while they were bad, and never making the moves needed to make them a long-term success. Pretty tough question on a guy that's nice enough to come on our shows at least once a week.

But this is a perfect opportunity. No - it's THE opportunity for Wallace to do 2 things:
1) Improve the team long-term. Maybe the Grizz won't get as good of a player if Gasol is moved, but they will improve the team. This team is in desperate need of a hustle player, a locker-room leader, and someone that the community can rally around.
2) Make a definitive statement that will put Chris Wallace's stamp on the Grizzlies as a team that he has created. And I don't think he wants that stamp to be signing Darko and Juan-Carlos.

There was a great article on Chris Wallace in The Boston Globe that talked about how Wallace was never really given the reigns in Boston. Well, now he has his chance.

C'mon, Chris. Make it happen.
