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.

Draymond Green was tossed from the game. Ja Morant had a last-second shot to win. So it’s a good thing the Grizzlies don’t let anything bother them. Because Game 1 would be easy to regret.
