Green Book also won in the Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) and Original Screenplay categories. Meanwhile, Spike Lee landed the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for...

The weirdest thing about watching this new-look version of the Memphis Grizzlies is that they are playing faster and more fun basketball, perhaps even being more competitive than they were two months ago — and I don't know who they are. We got to see some familiar faces Friday night,...
For black cast films, including “BlacKkKlansman,” “Black Panther,” “Green Book” and “If Beale Street Could Talk,” 2018 was a banner year.  Might Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) finally win the Best Director and Best Picture Oscars that have eluded him over the course of his 40-year career?

Somehow, some way, your Memphis Grizzlies built a 25-point lead over the Denver Nuggets last Monday night. And even as they carried a 17-point lead into the final frame, they found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Nuggets win, 95-92. The less said about that...

There's not much to say about this game, really. The Grizzlies should have coasted to a comfortable win over the Denver Nuggets, given that at one point they held a 25-point lead, even carrying a 17-point lead into the fourth quarter. They collapsed. Kyle Anderson may catch flak for blowing...

Apparently what I once considered “unthinkable” now seems more like inevitable. On Tuesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski dropped yet another “Woj Bomb” on the Grizzlies – breaking the news that for the first time, the Grizzlies will listen to trade offers for franchise icons Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. Later, it was...
