Currently down 3-0 in their Western Conference Finals series against the San Antonio Spurs after a heartbreaking defeat last night, the Memphis Grizzlies season is on life support – but there is some positive news on the horizon.
Unrestricted free agent Tony Allen is sure to garner a lot of interest on the open market this coming Summer, but if Allen has his way, he’ll be sticking around in Memphis.
It’s all Allen is thinking about now. His impending free agency feels a million years away.
“I don’t even understand the business side,” Allen said. “When July hits, somebody is going to have to sit me down and explain it. All I know is I’m a Grizzly and I believe I’m going to be a Grizzly when it’s over with.
“I bleed blue. I think they going to keep me. But if they don’t, I understand.
“I don’t even think about it now. I just play. I love being in Memphis. I love the city. Hopefully I stay here. It feels like home.”
