How Can This Be A Throwback Jersey...

when it matches a team (the ABA Memphis Tams) that has absolutely nothing in common with the NBA team it represents?

If the Grizz wants to go with throwback duds, they need to say Vancouver on them. And I'm reasonably certain that Big Country Reeves and Shareef Abdur-Rahim are available. Along with everyone else who ever played for the Vancouver Grizz, seeing how they are living under bridges.

It's as if the Eagles came out dressed as the Philadelphia Stars of the USFL. Which, well, I'd be perfectly fine with, seeing how that's the only football team in my town that has won a championship in my lifetime. (And no, arena football is not football.)

But well, if it someone gets anyone in the world to actually buy Memphis NBA swag, then so be it. And by the way, the Memphis Tams were owned by Charlie Finley, of Oakland A's fame. You guessed that, right?
