The Ship Be Sinking

So Wrong

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to help coach Memphis?

On the one hand, he can probably help them: Kareem is one of the smartest and frankly wisest retired athletes out there, and as a player he was famed not just for his athletic excellence but also for his technical skill. As a coach, he’s been well-respected. On paper you couldn’t pick a better guy to help wring some value out of the Grizzle’s selfish, disorganized, inexperienced mess of a frontcourt. On the other hand…it’s KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR working with THE MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES. In a league where Michael Jordan GM’s a team which thankfully did not exist during his player career I suppose anything is possible, but honestly my sense of propriety just rebels against this. The Grizzlies are like the NBA’s answer to one of those forgotten, black-hole, forsaken-by-God NHL teams from places whose last snowfall came under a Whig president. There’s just no excuse for them.
