    Damn, he was actually a good analyst. Now we'll have to deal with the likes of Chris Palmer.

    This is a super cool story. Hollinger is the interesting analyst who combines data with personal observation -- he definitely knows basketball, not just the stats. For another wrinkle, no media pundit exclusively has ever crossed over to the big leagues that I know of. I like both the chance both the Grizzlies and Hollinger are taking on this. But it will be very interesting to see how it turns out.

    I suspect ESPN owns the formula's/programs. I expect they will just keep running.

    lets face it isn't it a conflict of interest so to speak.

    he got a lot of flack a few years back for being bias
