Wednesday’s Morning Links:

Steve O Speak

Grizzlies Continue The Lakers Losing Streak: The Grizzlies handed the Lakers their third straight loss last night, and began to show they they are a legit team. Memphis might just be 8-10, but they have won four of their last five and I believe are capable of getting a playoff spot. The Grizzlies have gone on this run ever since they installed rookie Xavier Henry into the starting lineup. While moving O.J. Mayo out of the starting lineup was a bit of a shock at first, he gives them an excellent 6th man off the bench. I really like the Grizzlies roster and think their youth and talent is ready to breakout. Their wins last week over the Heat and last night over the Lakers proved that they could play with anyone, and I think it might be time to stop being surprised when Memphis beats a good team, since they are one themselves.

James Gets Ready to Be Homeward Bound: Tomorrow night LeBron James and the Heat head to Cleveland, for #23 (#6)’s return to the place where it all started. Now this game isn’t really a matchup between two playoff contenders, but it is going to feel like it is. You just know that the Cavs will do everything in their power to ensure James goes to South Beach with a loss. At the same time LeBron’s new teammates will fight hard to support their star. Beyond what happens with the players on the court the most interesting battle will be between the Heat and the fans in the stands. Yankees-Red Sox and Cowboys-Redskins rivalries have nothing on the fan hatred in Cleveland towards James. You know the fans will let him hear it every time he touches the ball and it will be must see tv. Even if you aren’t a basketball fan I’m guessing watching 10 minutes of this game will be well worth your time.
