There’s nothing like kicking back on the couch and watch the game on your flat-panel TV screen – drink in hand, snacks at the ready, ready to yell, pray and whoop at the players. Well… now that we think about it, there may be one thing which tops all of that: being part of the game yourself.
For those of us who aren’t professional basketball players – and we’re guessing that’s most of us – we usually watch the action from a distance. But going to a game and being a real part of the drama unfolding just a few feet away? It’s a seriously exciting event that instantly transforms us from spectators to participants.
After a long winter of training, our own Memphis Grizzlies are heading back to the court for another exciting season of b-ball. Since relocating from Vancouver to Memphis in 2001, they’ve dazzled hometown crowds with their formidable skill and athletic prowess. And this year is widely anticipated to be the most thrilling yet. Earning six playoff appearances since ’01, the franchise isn’t just one of the youngest in the NBA – it’s one of the best.
Our convenient location at the Crowne Plaza Memphis Downtown is just five minutes from the FedEx Arena, and our complimentary shuttle service provides an easy trip there and back with no traffic, no parking drama and no headaches.
Check out the Grizzlies’ 2017 season schedule, with home games slated for March 6th, 9th, 11th, 13th, 18th, 29th, and 31st. There’s no better way to understand Memphis than to get to know us at a Grizzlies game, where our Southern soul and athletic skill are matched by the loyal dedication of Memphis fans – with a high-five with our mascot Grizz for a bit of good luck, Memphis-style.
