Nicolas Batum and Portland face the music in Memphis

I’m pretty sure nobody really thinks Nicolas Batum meant to hurt anybody with his recent motivational message that happened to include an inflammatory remark about Spanish players. It was a joke. People joke all the time. Let’s move on, right? Well, of course. This story is ultimately pointless. Marc Gasol said it best because he’s the best. “I don’t have no take,...
