He unbuttoned his Venetian red jacket, eased his giant frame into a small folding chair and let out a loud sigh. He closed his eyes for a moment, maybe to try to sneak in a quick nap, but probably to clear his head and gather his thoughts. The sudden and searing pain of his season ending too early yet again was washing over him, blocking thoughts that this was possibly his final game in a Grizzlies uniform. "I haven't even spent a second thinking of that," he said. "I'm drained right now. I couldn't pull it out for my teammates tonight. I gave it all I had." ESPN.com
Stephen Curry says he takes no satisfaction in closing out a Grizzlies team that declined to draft him, saying that he never thinks about it. The Grizzlies had the second pick in the 2009 draft and selected center Hasheem Thabeet. After spending time with six teams, Thabeet now plays in the D-league with little hope of returning to the NBA. Asked how the draft would turn out if it were to be redone today, Curry took a long pause and quipped, "They might still think I'm too small." San Jose Mercury-News
Lee didn’t play a single minute in the Warriors’ first-round sweep of the New Orleans Pelicans; he played only nine total minutes through the first three games of this second-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies.
