The Memphis Grizzlies announced the dates of all their promotions and giveaways for the upcoming season today over at Grizzlies.com. You can read the full press release here. Below is the schedule for giveaways, as well as some of the more interesting dates.
- Tony Allen’s Return (Oct. 18): With Tony Allen in the building with his new team, the New Orleans Pelicans, the Grizzlies will give away Grit Grind Forever towels to all fans in attendance.
- Star Wars Night (Dec. 15): The first 5,000 fans will receive a Grizzlies light saber for Stars Wars Night (which is hopefully a typo and not a knockoff version of Star Wars).
- Wrestling Night (Jan. 5): The first 5,000 fans will receive a Jerry “The King” Lawler Crown as one of the team’s most popular events returns.
- Z-Bo’s Return (Jan. 19): The Grizzlies will also honor Z-Bo as he makes his return to the Grindhouse with the Sacramento Kings. The Grizzlies will give Grit Grind Forever headbands to the first 10,000 fans.
- Conor MarcGregor Night (Jan. 26): I’m not sure exactly what the Marc Gasol “Billion Dollar Strut” figure will look like, but it sounds awesome.
- Video Game Night (Mar. 2): Like the Gasol figure, the 8-bit Mike Conley also sounds like an awesome giveaway item.
- Chandler Parsons Hat Day (Mar. 9): I hope it says Chancun!
