I've got to tell you Heatlunatic, Memphis would be in an uproar if the Grizz even considered trading Battier. While we're NBA rookies here in Memphis, there were times you could tell Battier was playing with more effort and heart than any of the other nine players on the floor. He lives downtown near Beale Street and is approachable by everyone in public. Fred Smith (Memphis based FedEx founder and CEO) even had Shane address a shareholders meeting. While he may not be the most talented player on the floor his heart and never say die attitude more than make up the talent gap. At least for now, Battier is one of what the Memphis press refers to as the 'three Grizz untouchables', Pau Gasol and Lorenzen Wright (a native Memphian) are the others.
