Taking a page out of Pat Riley’s book, Memphis Grizzlies’ GM Chris Wallace created a motivational video for the Grizzlies prior to their first round series versus the San Antonio Spurs.
Check out what Wallace had to say:
When I worked for the Miami Heat, Pat Riley would commission motivational videos to show to the team at key junctures of the season. To honor the Grizzlies first Playoff appearance since 2006, I channeled my inner Pat Riley, and with the help of Andy Shiffman, we created this short video, which was shown to the team prior to the first round series with San Antonio. Thanks to all the Grizzlies fans for the huge boost they gave our team throughout the regular season and the San Antonio series. Keep cheering and believing through the rest of the Playoffs! Enjoy & Go Grizzlies!
-Chris Wallace, General Manager, Memphis Grizzlies
Perhaps the Spurs should have done the same prior to their meeting with the Grizzlies.
