GRIZZLIES TRY TO RE-UP FANS BEFORE NBA GOES INTO HIBERNATION

          The Grizzlies "are holding the line" on the cost of
     renewed and new full or partial season-ticket packages, but
     "there's a catch," according to a report in the VANCOUVER
     SUN.  In order to buy at last year's prices and "avoid" a
     C$1- and C$2-per game increases in price which will also
     affect single game tickets, fans "must commit before" July
     3, which is "just two days" after the NBA's "expected
     lockout" would begin.  After that date, prices in six out of
     seven ticket levels will rise by either C$1 or C$2 a game. 
     Grizzlies officials said that they "are uncertain" about
     what impact a lockout would have on sales, but Kevin Gass,
     the team's VP/Communications, said the verbal response to
     renewal notices has been "very positive."  Gass, on a
     possible lockout: "[T]here's never been a missed game in the
     NBA due to a labor situation.  We're going to assume
     optimistically that it won't happen" (VANCOUVER SUN, 6/4).
