Grizzlies' Ticket Sales Remain Strong, Including Waiting List For Lower-Level Suites

EARNING POWER: The MEMPHIS BUSINESS JOURNAL writes after a month that began with the firing of CEO Jason Levien, things have "calmed down" and are "looking good again" for the Grizzlies. Pera's regime is "slowly earning more trust from fans" as the owner "disappeared back into the ether that he materialized from in time for the draft." Pera will "never be as outgoing" as late former Owner Michael Heisley, nor will he ever be a "high-profile celebrity" like Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban. But what Pera "needs to understand" is that if he is not going to talk to fans outside of his Twitter account or radio appearances, he needs to "find someone within the organization that he trusts and empower them enough to speak on his behalf" (MEMPHIS BUSINESS JOURNAL, 7/4 issue).
