PLAYERS: Tony Allen
TEAMS: Memphis Grizzlies
Tony Allen’s heart was in the right place when he held a karaoke fundraiser on Tuesday, but his singing skills were on a different planet. The Grizzlies guard held his “Tony Allen Karaoke Night” at the Kroc Center in Memphis Tuesday to benefit the Juvenile Intervention and Faith-Based Follow-Up. Allen met with fans, signed autographs, and, of course, he sang karaoke. And, boy, was he terrible. Allen attempted to sing the 1990s Montell Jordan hit song “This is how we do it,” but he stumbled his way through most of the song and didn’t really know the words. Keep in mind, this is a song with more simplistic lyrics than Aldous Snow’s “African Child.” At least Allen got the chorus right … some of the time. At about the 1:40 mark, he completely loses his way with the song. Even Brennan Huff was better singing it. In the video below, he sings “Rock with u,” and he does much better. Even though we’re giving him a hard time for his performance on the Montell Jordan song, what really matter
