Thanks to Peyton Manning, I now remember that the Grizzlies are still an NBA franchise. Yes, they have had some postseason success, but their relevance is still waining in a star driven league. But with Manning at the helm, along with Justin Timberlake and Penny Hardaway, this team finally has some buzz around em. It isn’t about what these guys can do as owners, it is what they bring to the table in marketability. Much like the Nets and Jay-Z, these superstars make the Grizzlies a hot commodity in the NBA among celebrities and fans alike. And it doesn’t hurt that Manning is a University of Tennessee alum.
