First, there was the game. Then there was the column — the one in the Los Angeles Times that really wasn’t about the game as much as it was another column. Who says all of the action is on the court or even within FedExForum or even Beale Street. This is city on city conflict, columnist on columnist. I’m surprised those Memphians attending the Addams Family show at The Orpheum didn’t get dragged into this in some way.
Anyway, here it is in full for your consideration. It’s not like making one of those lists we always seem to make and it has been awhile since a columnist has taken a rip at us.
