No Gravatar

When I was growing up, it was a rare thing to see anybody with a tattoo, including athletes (and for the record, it wasn’t THAT long ago). Of course, these days, the rare thing is seeing an athlete without a tattoo. Some are simple, some elaborate, but almost all of them have some special meaning to the player in question.

Which brings us to Mike Conley. I’d never noticed a Bible verse tattooed on his right arm, so it startled me a little when he said he got it two or three years ago. Then again, he did mention that he wears a sleeve, and let’s be real: when you’re watching the games, you’re not really checking for body art. So with Mike sitting down without his sleeve on for Media Day 2012, I noticed it. I asked him about it. And here it is.
