Grizzlies coach weighs in on Charlottesville violence, connection to his family

Days after a woman was killed during a counter protest of a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale weighed in on the topic and the impact it has had on his family. Fizdale’s wife, Natasha, detailed the heritage of the coach’s family in an Instagram post. His grandparents fell in love while fighting against the Nazis, according to the tweets. Neo-Nazis, the KKK and white nationalists were reportedly among the hate groups involved in the weekend violence in Charlottesville. The tweets go on to say that “TRUE Americans would never stand with, march with, sympathize with or defend the actions of this hateful ideology.” Read the Instagram post

Report: LeBron James ‘100 percent leaving’ Cavaliers after this season

The latest from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is the Celtics have been talking to Cleveland about Kyrie Irving. According to Woj, the Cavs are “intrigued” with Jayson Tatum. Who wouldn’t be after the Summer League he had?  If it takes Tatum to get Kyrie, then what the hell is Danny waiting for? Pull the trigger. Please don’t give me the youth argument, because I’ll throw it back in your face. Irving is only 25 years old.  Irving is the second-best player in the Eastern Conference, with his short-term teammate, LBJ, being the first. This guy averaged 25.2 ppg and 5.8 assists for the season and 29.4 ppg in the finals against the Warriors, and I thought he played harder than LeBron James in the Cavs’
