The Memphis Grizzlies are officially getting the national recognition they deserve. ESPN is rolling out the red carpet with a special full day of programming for the Grizzlies game on March 23 versus the Brooklyn Nets.
ESPN will give viewers an All-Access look at the Grizzlies that will include film sessions, workouts, meetings, mic’d-up coaches, players and more. An All-Access day of coverage dedicated to one NBA team hasn’t been done since the Toronto Raptors in 2018. Before that, only the Philadelphia 76ers in 2017.
“When you look at the Grizzlies, they have one of the best records in the NBA, and it’s been frankly under the radar,” David Roberts, head of ESPN’s NBA and Studio production said. “They have some of the best young talent in the NBA, as well as we look at where the league’s future lies in terms of the next generation of stars; arguably, it starts in Memphis.”
