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.

Feeling a little queasy, Grizzlies fans? That’s understandable. But you can take heart that the players themselves don’t seem to be nervous. According to coach Taylor Jenkins, they’re just “pissed.”
