Grizzlies marketing department does it again: Tony Allen Jedi robe giveaway on Dec, 11th

The Memphis Grizzlies have developed a pretty strong reputation for extremely creative and effective marketing promotions over the past few years. Last year we saw the debut of Z-Bowties and the now infamous and still very collectible Grizzlies wrestling belts. Those belts still go for around $100 on eBay anytime they're listed.

This year the Grizzlies have continued to raise the bar. For their Star Wars Night on December 11th they will be giving out 3,000 Tony Allen Jedi robes. This coincides with the release of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie and plays on one of Tony's signature looks from last season.

I don't yet have any visuals available for what a Tony Allen Jedi robe will look like, but I imagine it'll be something of a cross between this:

And this:

But it doesn't stop there. There will be another Wrestling Night on March 11th, 2016 when the Grizzlies will give out 3,000 Luchadore masks that will surely harken back to our favorite masked man, Mike Conley.

We'll see the return of Z-Bowties and many other staples. For Hardwood Classics night, when the Grizzlies will debut their Memphis Sounds throwback uniforms, there will be 5,000 Memphis Sounds pennants given out that are sure to look sharp.
