Tony Allen Says 'Grit and Grind' Motto Came from Rudy Gay Sitting out a Game

Rivea RuffContributorAugust 5, 2017

Rudy Gay wasn't exactly thrilled with former Memphis Grizzlies teammate Tony Allen's "Grit and Grind" backstory, and he let it be known on Twitter on Saturday.

MassLive's Tom Westerholm revealed that Allen spilled the beans at a public appearance on Friday, saying the mantra, now synonymous with the franchise, began as a way to tease Gay for sitting out a game. 

Gay let it be known that Allen's story was a case of the "pot calling the kettle black."
