The city of Memphis is so addicted to the game of basketball that the hashtag #GrizzSummerLeague was actually trending in Memphis Twitter yesterday afternoon. The Semi-Bear Memphis Grizzlies did have a thrilling 2OT sudden death win over the Orlando Blue, but it's still pretty amazing it constituted a trend. As a self-admitted basketball addict himself, it's not a wonder that Marc Gasol loves it in Memphis.
Thrilling victory withstanding, it's still NBA Summer League and I can personally attest to there being a solid 30+ minutes of that game that was nearly unwatchable.
We're addicted, folks. We have a problem and we should be willing to admit it.
