This winter has been disastrous—if you live in the south and are unaccustomed to snow, ice and temperatures below freezing. The polar vortex has been causing cold fronts that have been much more intense than any in recent years past.

Pax, the most recent winter storm to pass through the east coast and make its way to the southern states, has hit hard. There is less snow in some areas than the last storm, but more ice. The ice has caused plenty of problems, from trees toppling over and knocking out power lines and crashing through houses to roads that can be traveled on by way of ice skating.

220px-Lionel-hollinsI was a guest on Sirius XM’s NBA show today, which was co-hosted by former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins.

Turning the tables, I opened the segment — even though I was the interviewee — by asking Hollins why he wasn’t in Detroit taking command of the Pistons after the firing of Maurice Cheeks.

Hollins came right out and said he is interested in the job, but that nobody from Detroit had reached out to contact him.

ChrisPaulSH1Chris Paul returned to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.

We don’t want to be party-poopers, but it probably should be pointed out that the Clippers were better without him.

This does not mean that GM Gary Sacks should start exploring trade possibilities for a top-five player. And it doesn’t mean that coach Doc Rivers should go with the hot hand at point guard at the end of games.

But it does mean that if the Clippers want to win a championship this season – which is entirely within the realm of possibility – Paul has to reacclimate himself with his teammates more than they do to him.

Mike ConleyIs there any way to cool off the Memphis Grizzlies?

The hottest team in the league (along with the Oklahoma City Thunder) continued its torrid streak on Friday by beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 94-90. The Grizzlies have now won five straight and 10 of their last 11 games. Overall, they hold a 25-20 record and are now just half a game behind the Dallas Mavericks for the 8th seed in the Western Conference.

Marc GasolWhen Marc Gasol went down with a scary knee injury in late November, the Memphis Grizzlies were a modest 7-6 to begin the season.

Without their reigning Defensive Player of the Year, the Grizzlies were a subpar 10-13 and many around the league began to wonder if they would even make it back to the playoffs in the ultra-competitive Western Conference.
