Spent some time today at Billy Hardwick’s All Star Lanes for Mike Conley’s 5th Annual Bowl-N-Bash Event to Benefit Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center. Teammates such as Mike Miller, Tayshaun Prince, Quincy Pondexter, Ed Davis, Kosta Koufos, Willie Reed, and Nick Calathes came out and supported the event. Talked to Mike Conley about the benefit, training camp and the offseason.
Q: Talk about today’s event here at All-Star Lanes.

Q: How do you guys feel about doing training camp this year in Nashville?
Conley: I think it’s cool I think it’s good to get out of Memphis and go to another city see a different side of the state meet some different fans and expand our fan base a little bit.
Q: Ohio State Buckeyes going to take care of business tonight against Wisconsin?
Conley: I sure hope so I sure hope so if we don’t I’ll be a unhappy guy with Jon Leur in the locker room. Trust me.
This was a overall great event for Mike Conley, the Memphis Grizzlies, and especially Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center. All of the players were in great spirits. They never turned down an autograph or picture from the fans. It’s events like this that prove that when it comes to helping out the community, no one does it better than the Memphis Grizzlies.
