Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

It would have been sweeter if 18,000 Memphians had been jammed into FedExForum. But Ja Morant made sure this MLK Day game ended with a win.
