Grizzlies’ owner to play Tony Allen one-on-one for charity

Grizzlies' Tony Allen celebrates on the bench during the third quarter in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series against the San Antonio Spurs in Memphis Reuters

Grizzlies owner Robert Pera plays in a regular pick-up run and according to those who have seen him he’s got some game — he has a jumper from the outside and some hops around the rim to the point he used to be able to dunk.

That doesn’t mean he’s beating Tony Allen one-on-one. But the two are playing this Saturday in Memphis for charity.

It all started on twitter.

The best part — Zach Randolph is going to be the referee for this game.

This should be fun; I love that an owner would do this (I do not recommend Tom Benson challenge Anthony Davis, however). Pera will get a couple, but once Tony Allen decides to lock him down… game over.

    Bet there’s a long list of former Clippers that would love to play Donald Sterling 1 on 1.

    A cheap elbow for Lionel Hollins would be nice.

    No one on the Nets better change their owner to a game. He’s 6′ 8″ and will have the ref direct from KGB
