Tony Allen seems to think Memphis is better without Rudy Gay. Allen referred to Gay as "the guy that we traded."
When asked why the Memphis Grizzlies have been playing better in recent weeks, Tony Allen had this to say:
"Well, I just think we turned into the team that we were two years ago, without the guy that we traded. Obviously, we've made some additions, but for the most part we're the same team from that 2010-11 season. Just Grit and Grind, in and out basketball. Everybody playing hard, playing together."
