Music Video Monday: Jordan Occasionally
02/17/2020 11:14am

Music Video Monday has what you want. Coffee. Thats what we all want. I want more right now. But before I get more, Im going to introduce you to Jordan Occasionally, the artist behind Coffee Im Addictied. With this video, shot in Avenue Coffee Shop, it seems like the Choose901 Artist to Watch has got her finger on the racing pulse of caffeinated Memphis. Except, in this case, the coffee might be a metaphor. It is a black queer love story, that lacks the elements of tragedy Hollywood seems to impose on black queer relationships, says Jordan. I hope to encourage and promote love because more children need to know that it is okay to be who they are, and I know my music video will provide them with that hope. Coffee, the drink of love. Heres the video, produced and directed by NuJas: If you would like to see your music video featured on Music Video Monday, email cmccoymemphisflyer.com

Make MATA Free: Improve the Lives of Thousands of Memphians
02/17/2020 10:44am

Last spring I found myself in a position of unimaginable privilege. For the first time in my adult life, I had a car that worked and was paid off. No weird rattles, squeaking brakes, bald tires. I hate the term adulting for philosophical reasons, but it was one of those times in my life that made me think so this is what its like. Then I started anticipating the inevitable break-in, wreck, or other misfortune that would set me back again and put me in my cosmic place. Just watch, Id say. Somethings going to fall out of the sky and land on my car because I dont deserve this. A month later, as a chunk of road debris hurtled toward my windshield on I-40, I thought, Well, there it is. The damage turned out to be minor, but being virtually carless for a couple weeks reminded me how difficult it is to thrive in Memphis without a vehicle. My home and my office are two miles apart, putting me on the road a grand total of 10 minutes a day. I know I have it easy. But I tried to plot a bus route home from work and MATAs trip planner told me LOL, walk which I did, a couple times. And let me tell you, it sucked If thats more optimal than the bus, weve got a problem with the bus. I can shrug and catch an Uber, but someone who has to schlep across town for a $7.25-an-hour job does not have that luxury. The bus ride from Whitehaven to Downtown takes about an hour one-way, not including the wait. Anyone who doesnt have access to a car has their opportunities limited by the number of hours in a day. Im heartened by the county mayors commitment to transit equity, and Id love to see MATA viewed less as the nuisance in the right lane on Poplar and more as a reliable way to get around. Improving and expanding service are obviously high priorities for increasing ridership, but theres one more way to get people to hop on. The New York Times last month published a story about a growing trend in cities that have seen bus ridership increase up to 60 percent. All they had to do was waive the fare. Should Memphis try something similar Yes, it sounds counterintuitive, as the city and county look to infuse more money into MATA, not less. But public transportation cant work unless its an option for everyone, versus the only option for some. There are two ways to do that: Make it convenient, and make it affordable. $1.75 a ride seems affordable, until you factor in the time investment and the fact that $70 a month does not fit everyones definition of affordable. Oh, but who will pay for it Lets just get this out of the way: the same people who pay for every other public good. I have little patience for those who bristle at paying for services they dont use, as if we could allocate our taxes to the projects we care about. I dont have kids, and my house hasnt burned down yet, but here I am, still dutifully paying for schools and the fire department. If you live in Cordova and have never seen a bus, Im sorry to hear it but you chose the Germantown Parkway lifestyle, friend. And youre contributing to the road congestion and pollution that better public transit would solve. Actually, that makes a pretty good case for a toll. How about, say, $1.75 each way for commuters on 240 and 385 While cities that waived bus fares saw an increase in ridership, they didnt see a decrease in the number of cars on the road. This is because people who ride the bus generally dont have cars. Such is the case in Memphis, where bus riders typically live in poorer neighborhoods. Why should they pay to be part of the solution In addition to the wheel tax the county commission is considering, there are other car-centric ways to fund free transit. On any given day in Midtown, the city could make a boatload ticketing cars parked illegally on the street too close to the corner, in no-parking zones, in front of fire hydrants. Maybe some incentives could encourage businesses to dig in and support a transit fund. Who knows Its not impossible to make transportation a right, not a privilege.

Tigers' Top 10 Individual Seasons
02/17/2020 9:07am

With the University of Memphis marking a centennial of basketball, the time is right for a look at the 10 greatest individual seasons in program history. Here they are. 10 Dajuan Wagner 2001-02 Wagners abbreviated NBA career has left him somewhat of a footnote in the sports history, but his one college season was memorable for two reasons. His 762 points are the most ever scored by a Memphis player in one campaign and he finished the season raising a national championship trophy, having led the Tigers to victory in the NIT at Madison Square Garden. 9 Jeremiah Martin 2018-19 Until Martins senior season, seven Memphis players had scored 40 points in a game, but no one had done so twice. Martin scored 40 points twice in the month of February the first time in a single half. A player who averaged 2.7 points as a freshman became just the fifth Tiger to score 700 points in a season. 8 Andre Turner 1985-86 The Little General averaged 7.7 assists per game in the first season After Keith Lee. In the 34 years since, no Tiger has averaged as many as 7.0 and only two have hit the 6.0 mark Penny Hardaway and Chris Garner. Turner also averaged 13.9 points, joined the 1,000-point club, and helped the Tigers to a fifth straight appearance in the NCAA tournament. 7 Forest Arnold 1955-56 Arnold is one of only two Tigers to rank among the programs top 10 in both scoring average 21.2, seventh and rebounding average 13.5, fourth from the same season. His 46 points against Hardin-Simmons on December 7, 1955, are the second-most for a single game in Memphis history. Larry Finch scored 48 in a 1973 game. 6 Chris Douglas-Roberts 2007-08 CDR became only the third Memphis player to earn first-team All-America honors from the AP and did so sharing the floor with a man Derrick Rose who would be the top pick in the 2008 NBA draft. His 724 points rank third in Tiger history and he might be even higher on this last had he not missed a pair of late free throws in the national championship against Kansas. 5 Win Wilfong 1956-57 Wilfong averaged 21.0 points and 12.4 rebounds 63 years later, both figures rank among the Tigers top 10. He led Memphis State to the NIT final and earned MVP honors with 31 points despite the Tigers loss to Bradley. Converse named him first-team All-America. 4 Keith Lee 1984-85 You could really take your pick from Lees four Tiger seasons, but well go with his senior campaign, one that earned the West Memphis native first-team All-America recognition from the AP. Lee averaged 19.7 points and 9.2 rebounds in leading the Tigers to the first 30-win season in program history and their second Final Four appearance. 3 Larry Finch 1972-73 To this day, no Tiger has averaged more than Finchs 24.0 points per game over the course of a season. Finchs 23.9 average from the 1971-72 campaign ranks second. Ive heard it said by several that he would have averaged 30 points with a three-point line. He was the first Tiger to top 700 points for a season, capped off by 29 against UCLA in the national championship. 2 Penny Hardaway 1992-93 Hardaway broke his coachs single-season scoring record with 729 points while also becoming just the second Tiger to dish out 200 assists in a season. Over three days in early January, Hardaway became the first and still only Tiger to post two triple-doubles. He was named first-team All-America by the AP, only the second Tiger to be so honored. 1 Larry Kenon 1972-73 Kenon is the only Tiger player to have his jersey number retired for only one season of actually wearing it. And that season was good enough to top this list. Kenon is the only Tiger to pull down as many as 400 rebounds in a season, and he had 501. Ronnie Robinsons junior and sophomore seasons are second and fourth on the chart, respectively, but his senior year, Kenon pulled down anything round or orange. Kenon had 25 double-doubles in 30 games, averaging 20.1 points and 16.7 rebounds. As great as Finch and Robinson were, those Tigers dont reach the Final Four without Larry Kenon.

The Tigers scored nine points in the final minute of their game at UConns XL Center Sunday afternoon. And it wasnt enough.

Grizzlies' Rising Stars at NBA All-Star Weekend
02/15/2020 1:15pm

Brandon Clarke went up against teammates Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson, Jr. in the NBA Rising Stars game. Clarke started on Team World while Morant and Jackson started on Team USA. The game began with Morant lobbing to Jackson for a bucket, but Clarke had the best stats of the trio. The Canadian finished with 22 points, eight rebounds, and two assists, including some dazzling dunks. Jackson had 12 points and seven rebounds and Morant added 10 points and six assists, including some highlight plays, to lift Team USA to a 151131 win. After the game, Clarke spoke to the media about playing against his teammates. I was just kind of in awe watching them really, Clarke said about Morant and Jackson. So I wasnt really telling my teammates what they were going to do. I actually would just say, Jaren is pulling left heavily, which he did. But thats pretty much it. Clarke added Its kind of cool guarding Ja, because I see why he is so tough to guard. I think he had a really good finish going left on me and I see why that shot is so hard to block. Ive seen Ja do that move so much going left and doing that double layup and I still couldnt stop it. So it shows how hard it is to guard him. Ja Morant talked about playing against Clarke. Brandon Clarke It definitely was, Morant said when asked if it was odd playing against his teammate. I kind of knew what he was going do, though. So, I got out of the way on a couple dunks. I tried to box him out early because I know he likes getting rebounds and then dunking it back. We are just young, very athletic and just get out and run, Morant said about the Grizzlies team. I feel like we all have something to prove. We just go out with this chip on our shoulder. We keep proving people wrong. More quotes from Morant: What was it like to play with all those guys you have never played before It was nice. I mean, like they said, Rising Stars. Thats what this game is for, for guys coming up in the league trying to be big-time players. Definitely special playing with the best young talent in this NBA. Can you talk about your first NBA All-Star experience It was just having fun. I attack every game the same way. Obviously today is not the same as playing with the Grizzlies, but still have fun. Any butterflies for this game No, I dont even get nervous for games anymore. I feel like at the end of the day, its basketball and there is nothing I should be afraid of, because whoever Im going against put on their shoes and stuff the same way I do. How do you feel about being in your first NBA All-Star and doing all the NBA Cares stuff in this city and the message it sends to the local youth Its special. Had fun, enjoyed every bit of everything that I was involved in this weekend. Hopefully, Ill be in a lot more. What kind of things are you looking forward to this coming weekend Enjoying it, thats it. Having fun. Its my first one. My family is here and we are all going to enjoy it.
