Memphis Grizzlies On The Cover Of New SLAM Magazine Issue

Hope the start of the new year is treating you good. I’m off my “vacation” and like I PROMISED, the site will be updated on a regular basis.

Theres a lot of teams in the league who’s surprising people but Memphis’ been making noise for a minute now. It’s only right they’re on the cover on the new SLAM Mag, which will be available next week. Below is a quick excerpt from writer Adam Figman of what you’ll find in the issue.

True story: Rudy Gay looked me square in the eye and told me he didn’t like me.

It was the last day of my trip to Memphis—a four-day voyage I took to hang out with some Grizzlies and write SLAM 165’s cover story—and I was fresh out of clean clothes of any sort. With few options, I made do with the closest thing to half-clean I could find, a slightly stained adidas sweater hidden somewhere in the back corner of my travel bag. Looked fine, though I had no choice but to rock it with a pair of black/cement Jordan IIIs (gasp!), the only pair of sneaks I had brought with me to Tennessee.
