Random Story Time of the Week
Hundreds of local elementary school kids packed the lower bowl of the FedExForum today for the Grizzlies’ Read to Achieve celebration. Read to Achieve is an NBA program that encourages literacy in the communities of the different teams.
At today’s celebration, Grizzlies’ PA announcer Joey read a story called “Teddy Bear Dreams”, the tale of a bear who really wants to be a basketball player when he grows up. The story was (adorably) acted out by Tony Allen, Xavier Henry, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.
