Grizzlies The Latest Team To Unveil New
Look Prior To Opening Of New Arena

The Grizzlies Thursday unveiled new Reebok uniforms, which feature the company's Play Dry technology, as well as a new Web site, merchandise and a team store. The new home uniform is white with Smoke Blue, Memphis Midnight Blue, Beale Street Blue and Grizzlies Gold trim. The word "Grizzlies" is emblazoned across the front, while the team logo appears on the shorts' lower left leg (Grizzlies). Grizzlies F James Posey said of the uniform, "It's very fashionable. I would think a lot of the fans would want this merchandise." In Memphis, Ronald Tillery writes, "Posey's forecast seemed correct, judging by the line leading into the Grizzlies' renovated team store." Grizzlies C Lorenzen Wright, on whether the uniforms resemble the Mavericks': "We won't look like the [Mavericks] when we're out there playing. We'll look totally different. But we like the new colors. We want to make these some winning colors" (Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 6/18). Also in Memphis, Geoff Calkins writes the uniforms "really are snappy, and everyone seemed pleased and there wasn't any grumbling about the new look anymore" (Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 6/18).
