Chris Herrington covers the Memphis Grizzlies and writes about Memphis culture, food, and civic life. He lives in the Vollintine-Evergreen neighborhood of Midtown with his wife, two kids, and two dogs.

Centers Steven Adams and Jonas Valanciunas are different players. The former has long been known as a dirty-work guy. The latter is a buckets-and-boards machine. But I’m struck by the similarities.
