I just want to thank all my family, friends and fans for standing by me during this time. Although I can’t address the ongoing legal matters right now, I want everyone to know I’m doing the work to address my case. That said, I have asked the Grizzlies to postpone my jersey retirement until next season. We can all truly celebrate it together.
We’ll see what comes of Allen’s case. But he meant so much to Memphis and remains beloved there.
It’s hard to believe the Grizzlies won’t eventually put his number in the rafters.
