A week ago Memphis high schooler Adria gave his classmates a lesson on
emo the meaning of life that could’ve doubled as an Apocalypse Now outtake - if the natives were fighting over Burger King bags.
Make no mistake, things are going to be different in Memphis under new coach Lionel Hollins (OK, not much different from the previous two times he coached the team). No more lollygagging, no more backsass, and no more free lunches. That last one’s not a turn of phrase: he’s really doing away with feeding his players.
(Grizz’s beer belly will soon be a thing of the past.)
Tucked at the bottom of this notebook column (where the good stuff always is) in the MEMPHIS COMMERCIAL APPEAL is an item on Hollins stopping the team from providing players with breakfast and lunch before and after their off-day practices. And believe it or not, it’s not recession-related.
