    Heisley said he (Pera) is keeping the team here (which is why he sold the team to him in the first place, and not that other idiot who wanted to move the team) Even if he did want to move the team, he would have to pay somewhere in the range of $120 million, and that is just the relocation fee.

    The NBA wouldn't allow him to move the team even if he wanted too.

    Memphis is where they belong.

    The Forum is rocking. One of the better atmospheres in the NBA.

    Drove to Memphis a couple years ago to take in a Grizz game. Loved the game, but honestly can't stand the city of Memphis... Sorry to all of the Memphis'ites on this board.

    Sounds like the sale of the Grizzlies might be a good move. Let's see how it impacts the organization in the next couple of years.
