Hello, October! We have now entered the sports trifecta. There’s absolutely no time for sleep between MLB playoffs, a NFL season in full swing, and the start of the NBA season. Now, the NBA is known for being over the top to its fans. There’s always some random giveaway, mega pre-game concert, oh yeah, and free t-shirts galore. We know it’s just preseason but there’s one team that is taking their swag game to the next level – the Memphis Grizzlies.
If you are a Memphis fan, or just got a chance to catch a game last year, you probably couldn’t help but notice the Grizzlies’ customized flip-flops and the entire league was raving about “Z-bow-ties.” Now, this Western Conference powerhouse is determined to outdo itself once again with new and creative promotional items.
If you are planning on attending the Grizz game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, on Nov. 25, consider yourself a lucky fan. Everyone with a ticket will receive “Fizz Glasses,” i.e. glasses modeled after head coach David Fizdale’s thick-rimmed frames.
Fan favorites Marc Gasol and Tony Allen are getting in on the swag action as well. On March 11th fans will get a Gasol grill set, and the most hilarious of all, on April 9th a pepper grinder in honor of Allen’s defensive expertise.
For those needing to stretch it out, the team is giving away Chandler Parson yoga mats.
Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for, how will Zach Randolph top the “Z-bow-tie”? This year the Grizzlies will unveil “Z-Bo Wrestling Buddy,” which will appropriately debut on Wrestling Night, March 18th vs. the San Antonio Spurs.
We’re excited to tip off another NBA season and look forward to all the fan appreciation swag from now til the end of the season. And of course, we are left wondering if anyone has what it takes to challenge the Grizzlies to a swag dual.
