Tony Allen, in claymation, is an actual grizzly bear (VIDEO)

"First team, all defense."That's the accolade that the Memphis Grizzlies' Grindfather, Tony Allen, turned into a catch phrase this spring. As a crucial part of his team's surge that put them into a surprising 2-1 lead over the juggernaut Golden State Warriors in the second round, Allen staked an even bigger claim for himself as an elite defender. Perhaps even more so, he won over...

Tony Allen might be the difference for Memphis

Well, it seems that plans are underway again for the coronation of the Golden State Warriors, an event that seemed inevitable two weeks ago, then looked impossible a week ago. Two consecutive wins and the return of the 3-pointer have calmed the faithful, to the point where again, it seems inconceivable that they could lose this series. However, what if Tony Allen is healthy for...

The Memphis Grizzlies clashing styles with Golden State

Old sports adages tell us that defense wins championships. Then, Klay Thompson hits a deep, contested three and commentators remark, “That’s good defense. But, that’s better offense.” Games 2 and 3 of the Western Conference semifinal tell us that the Grizzlies’ defense would reign supreme in the series. Meanwhile, Game 1 and Game 4 featured “better offense” from the...

The Memphis Grizzlies should be jumping for joy

The Memphis Grizzlies have to love the position they find themselves in. Golden State is an absolutely dominant team at home. For Memphis to win a series that few have given them a chance in, it was imperative that they steal a game at Oracle Arena at some point. That win came sooner rather than later. Behind a strong defensive performance, which has been a calling card all season...

Tony Allen Trash Talks Warriors, Reminds Them Of His Accomplishments (Video)

Thank you, TNT, for putting a microphone on Tony Allen. The Memphis Grizzlies forward is one of the most, um, peculiar players in the NBA. He’s known first and foremost for his lockdown defense, but there’s something about Allen that seems a little … off. So it was quite a treat for hoops fans to see Allen mic’d up Tuesday night as his team took on the Golden State Warriors...

Tony Allen: Stephen Curry ‘ain’t nothing I ain’t never seen before’

Stephen Curry is going to see a lot of Memphis Grizzlies veteran Tony Allen in the Western Conference semifinals, and we doubt he is overly concerned about that. Allen has always been known as one of the better defenders in the league, but Curry scores on everyone. In his team’s Game 1 win over the...Read More

Tony Allen on Stephen Curry: “It Ain’t Nothing I Ain’t Never Seen Before”

As an editor, Tony Allen’s recent comments about Golden State Warriors guard and NBA MVP Stephen Curry make me want to tutor the Memphis Grizzlies guard. As someone who loves watching basketball, Allen’s comments made absolutely no sense. Here’s what the all-world defender had to say about Curry after the latter was announced as the Association’s MVP. I don’t get a vote...

Tony Allen walking through things becomes a meme

Tony Allen became a disliked personality in Oakland Sunday when he walked through a dance routine by a young Warriors pep squad during a timeout in Game 1 of the Memphis Grizzlies’ series against the Warriors. Golden State fans began booing Allen as a result, but he didn’t seem to mind. A day later, Allen’s...Read More

WATCH: Tony Allen walks through children performing, gets booed

Oh, look, it’s Tony Allen, that disrespectful scoundrel. During Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals series Sunday between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors, Allen walked right through a performance by the Warriors’ Junior Jam Squad during a timeout rather than walking around them so as not to interrupt. Dubs fans responded by...Read More
