It’s not the first time a member of the Memphis Grizzlies has said the team is now better following the Rudy Gay blockbuster trade to Toronto. The Grizz have won 14 of their last 15 games, and Tony Allen states the obvious (while hilariously referring to Rudy Gay as “the guy that we traded.”) Per Hoopsworld (via Sportando): “When asked why the Memphis Grizzlies have been playing better in recent weeks, Tony Allen had this to say: ‘Well, I just think we turned into the team that we were two years ago, without the guy that we traded. Obviously, we’ve made some additions, but for the most part we’re the same team from that 2010-11 season. Just Grit and Grind, in and out basketball. Everybody playing hard, playing together.’”
