Memphis Grizzlies Rumors
Michael Wallace: Bickerstaff on @Mike Conley: “He’s got that itch. We were just joking that he doesn’t even know what a basketball feels like anymore. He wants to be around. His teammates enjoy him. They smile when they see him. He smiles when he sees them. It’s therapeutic for him to be around.” twitter.com/MyMikeCheck/st…
