Memphis and the sport of basketball are forever linked. The two cultures coincide and the fiery fandoms of the Memphis Grizzlies and Tigers help display this. It is a pastime that unites generations living in the 901 and provides means of connection for people from all walks of life. However, finding a place to play can be expensive, as gym memberships are usually not cheap.
