Photo: Memphis Newspaper Uses Photo Of Juwan Howard To Welcome New Grizzlies' Coach David Fizdale

Memphis paper mixes up Juwan Howard, David Fizdale.


The Memphis Grizzlies have a new head coach. The team has hired David Fizdale, previously an assistant with the Miami Heat. 

The city's largest newspaper, The Commercial Appeal, ran a story today on Fizdale's hiring. 

Unfortunately, they did not use a photo of Fizdale. Instead, they ran a photo of Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra and assistant Juwan Howard, incorrectly identifying Howard as Fizdale.
