(Memphis) The Memphis Grizzlies have confirmed the departure of two management team members.

“Our franchise has made tremendous strides over the last few seasons and we thank Jason for his hard work and dedication and wish him nothing but success in his future endeavors,” Pera said in a written release.

Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace will take over basketball operations of the team for the time being.

Chief Operating Officer Jason Wexler will watch over business operations for the team.

    How come no women or blacks in management? Do you have your quota of homosexuals and atheists? This has to be racist, you dont even have an hispanic. Somebody is getting their civil rights violated since their seems to be no diversity in management. I would say hire a fat lady but Barkley would just make fun of her. No problem with ridiculing fatties as our hypocritical media has proven time and time again.

    You are being racist just looking for a reason to complain. I wouldn’t hire a groid either. Look at your culture and look at the city and how it’s lead. It’s chaos just like the country. Black make good players and drug runners. Oh gosh car thieves, shooting people, living on the government and on and on. Does that make it clear enough for you? I’m sure your MCS system didn’t teach you much. I can tell you must be a hood rat.

      Tranny needs some home Training. That’s rude and very disrespectful!!! Racism is hate, and hate is a ticket to Hell. If you can’t love all people, then you can’t love God. Get your heart right, and your soul forgiven. Hell is awaiting hatred/racist!!!

    Trannyhellbound I’m not a racist. I can’t help most blacks are. I just wouldn’t hire any. It’s because of your culture and the way y’all act. No home training and are like wild Indians. I have black friends and they are nice as can be but get them around another black and that jungle fever starts coming out. Oh the truth hurts and the truth doesn’t choose colors. Everything I wrote is true. I wish people could get along but guess what, they don’t and they won’t. Your culture didn’t get this way overnite and it sure won’t change overnite. Sorry to have to inform you of that.

      First of all Tranny, I am white. Secondly, you stated you have friends that are black, but you would hire them. hmmm Again, you have not training, and you sound like a racist. All whites are not the same, just like all blacks are not the same. I see more of our race everyday replicating other races. We are all one. We all will leave Earth someday. We all will have to answer to a higher calling. Just because you know a few people who don’t fit into your characteristics, doesn’t make their entire race that way. I love everyone. My parent raised me not hate anyone or look down on anyone. Get your soul right before you leave Earth. I wish for world peace but it is written that the world would wax cold one day, and there will be hate amounst people. Get the hate of your heart. Color has nothing to do with characteristics. I know whites, blacks, indians, hispanics, etc who have done crimes, or are lazy, or are “wild”, but i know for a fact it has nothing to do with race. I pray for you today. Don’t die and go to hell because of your hatred. Have a Bless Day.

    I totally agree with you, blacks are out of control. Avoid the groid.

    • TrannyHellBound

      hmmm name like WhitesRdevilsanhypicrites blah blah, makes me think that you’re not wrapped together. on one end you are saying whites r hypocrites, and on the other blacks are out of control. hmmmm read my last post to Tranny..

    The new CEO had better not be Hispanic or they will face the wrath of the voice of the black people of Memphis..Ms. Henri Brooks. For the black people all the time. Blacks the ” minority ” in Memphis…even though they make up 60 percent of the population in the city. Go figure. Maybe she took her math courses in a MCS. So I will cut her some slack. 60 percent is more than 40 percent. So Blacks are the Majority not the minority in Memphis and in Shelby County.

    Trannyishellbound you must be a product of MCS. I didn’t say I would hire my black friends. You must be from nutbush. Doesn’t matter cuz say what you want but the truth is the truth. Oh by the way are you God? I don’t think so. I have to answer to him not to you. Go read channel 5 and post on there. You can’t haha and that’s good cuz you can’t read.

  • WhitesRdevilsanhypicritesisafatnastyslobthatsuxxguystootsierolls

    It he name is pointing out the Whitesaredevils guy. You are a rookie on here I see. Keep it up and people will be using your name cuz you seem like an idiot like john and Chris and a few more.
