GRIZZLIES BANKING ON '94 EXHIBITION TO SELL SEASON TICKETS
Published September 23, 1994
To date, the Grizzlies have only "one up-front, in the public-eye employee," VP/GM Stu Jackson. "And it's a safe bet he isn't going to sell 8,000 season tickets with his "charming smile and nicely tailored suits." Jackson is counting, in part, on an October 25 exhibition between the Lakers and Sonics to help the team reach the league-mandated minimum of 15,000 season tickets by December 15. Jackson said the Grizzlies have had slightly more than 7,000 season tickets registered to be purchased, plus 1,250 suite seats (Dan Stinson, VANCOUVER SUN, 9/23).
