Grizz Director of Scouting and analaseez

Tony Barrone Jr. will be on the show today to talk about the draft, scouting, and the summer league team for the Grizz.

A quick hit on the draft. I hate to see Shane Battier go. Anyone that knows basketball knows what this guy brings to the table. He was the Grizzlies best on-ball and help defender. He makes winning plays and is totally selfless. Houston got a championship component when they acquired that guy.

On the other hand, this was a great step in the right direction for the Grizzlies. They needed to get more athletic and they did, and they needed to acquire players that could out-perform a contract, which they did. Gay and Lowry, along with Alexander Johnson, are seriously worth getting excited about. Alexander Johnson defames a guy.

An incredible Rudy Gay montage (always makes me think of Team America World Police when I use that word.)

I like what the Grizz are doing. I will bet there is more to come.

In the Ipod--- Young Jeezy (because I am from the streets), Arctic Monkeys (seemed like a good time to fire them up again), and Flyleaf (because the chick lead singer is scary)
