Xavier Henry and Greives Vasquez: 2010 NBA Rookie Photoshoot

 

Whether or not we will ever see either player in these jerseys is still yet to be determined but that didn’t keep the 2 Grizzlies hopefuls (neither has signed with the team yet, just in case you didn’t know) from participating in the 2010 NBA Rookie Photoshoot with the rest of their fellow draftees.

Vaccaro Sheds Some Much Needed Light On The Grizzlies vs: Xavier Henry Saga

I guess they don’t call Sonny Vaccaro the “Godfather of Grassroots Basketball” for nothing. This guy knows everything and everyone; and he surely proved it once again during his weekly visit to “The Chris Vernon Show” today. During his interview Vaccaro educated us all on exactly what was going on between the Memphis Grizzlies and their First Round Draft Pick Xavier Henry.  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Just when you think you have it all figured out, you realize that you know absolutely NOTHING, which is equally disturbing and refreshing at the same time. For the past 3 days Grizzlies fans have rightfully been in a uproar, lead by Verno and other media members who follow behind him about the stance Grizzlies ownership and management have decided to take by not offering their #12 Pick from the 2010 NBA Draft a customary 20% pay increase over his alotted salary. While many of us read into this story and just automatically assumed it was a matter of the Grizzlies not wanting to pay Henry in full for his services, Vaccaro adds another wrinkle to the fabric which makes it a little tougher to make a judgement on which side your with.

What Vaccaro has to say is not guaranteed to change your mind on the situation but it does give all listeners who care, something else to consider before making another arguement in favor of either party. Along with speaking on the Memphis Grizzlies vs: Xavier Henry Saga, Vaccaro also hit on possible NCAA eligibility rule changes and the future of current University of Memphis Tiger Will Barton.

Bigger Diva: Brett Favre or LeBron James

Both players have hi-jacked our summers while they made up their minds on whether or not to “stay or go”.  LeBron deciding what major US city he was going to take his talents to and Favre deciding on whether or he would be able to play and last throughout an entire NFL season. Now that both decisions have been made and the players are where they will be for the upcoming NFL and NBA regular season, its our turn to make a decision on “Which Player Is The Biggest Diva . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Brett Favre or LeBron James”.

My vote is for LeBron. Just seems like day after day, week after week the guy gives us something new to talk about. Whether its something said on his twitter page, a television interview, or print interviews he has provided us with more then his share or quotes and debatable thoughts this summer. What do you think?
