Spurs part of the ‘Grind Pack’


Whether there is going to be a next season or not doesn’t really matter to the Memphis Grizzlies as the team has announced their ticket packages for fans and the San Antonio Spurs are featured in the “Grind Pack.”

Another 10-game deal is known as the “Grind Pack” and features several contests against the NBA’s elite, including the defending champion Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 16 along with the Boston Celtics (Dec. 27), New York Knicks (Jan. 12), San Antonio Spurs (Feb. 14), Lakers (March 13) and Orlando Magic (March 17).

First, you know Grizzlies fans will show up to that game versus the Spurs, especially after their stunning first-round upset over San Antonio. So Spurs fans in attendance at the FedEx Forum, be ready for some trash talk and expect no love on that Valentine’s Day matchup.

Second, since when did the Knicks become one of the NBA’s elite? I get the Spurs, Lakers, Mavericks, Celtics, and Magic as NBA elite but the Knicks?
