This Memphis Grizzlies promo made me a little emo

I appreciate the heart and hustle of Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, and newcomer Tayshaun Prince.  I dig their blue collar and scrappy style of play. The 2013-2014 promo’s started from the bottom, now we here story of the Grizzlies resonated with me.  The promo made me care about Memphis basketball.  But to be honest, I think the T-Mac cameo is really what did me in.  Preying on my emotions in that way was so not cool, especially because he played for the Spurs, not the Grizzlies.  But I digress.

Bottom line is, the Grizzlies have arrived.  After three consecutive trips to the playoffs, and a Western Conference Finals appearance last season, the Grizzlies are no longer sleepers or underdogs, they’re bonafide contenders.  Expectations for the Grizzlies are high among a deep Western Conference — Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, LA Clippers, Golden State Warriors, and the Houston Rockets.

NBA preseason basketball.  October 5. Get excited!
