Grizz season is coming and to fan the flames of Memphis’s hype, the Memphis Grizzlies have announced their special promotional nights for the 2017/18 season.
This year features plenty of special giveaway nights with two of the most notable being the “Grit and Grind Forever” nights. The first will be the season opener versus the New Orleans Pelicans, where fans will have a chance to see the Grindfather, Tony Allen, suit up for his first game against the Grizz since he was a Boston Celtic in 2010. All fans attending will receive a “Grit and Grind Forever” Growl-Towel.
The second is on January 19th, when the Zach Randolph and the Sacramento Kings come to town. To honor Z-Bo, fans will receive a “Grit and Grind Forever” headband. With both players fully embracing and embodying Memphis for many years, these games should end up being special nights.
Other fun giveaways include a Marc Gasol “billion dollar strut” figurine, a Chandler Parsons hat, and a special edition Memphis Grizzlies Lightsaber (on Dec. 15th) to commemorate the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Be sure to be in attendance on these nights if you want to experience fun themed environments and to build your collection of Grizzlies memorabilia.
