Following Memphis' shootaround in Portland on Thursday, several Grizzlies players responded to the hashtag. (h/t Ronald Tillery of The Commerical Appeal)
Courtney Lee: “It’s childish. We took our L and we kept it moving, right? We lost by 50. We didn’t cry over it, and went on to the next one. Apparently, they’re holding on to it. That’s what they got to do to overshadow their loss. Last time I heard, a loss is a loss. But that’s what they do over there.”
Tony Allen: “You ever seen the movie 'White Men Can’t Jump'? It’s like those brothers would rather look good in a loss and look bad in a win. Whoever is in charge of their Twitter should be fired. I’ve never seen anybody broadcast losing. Who’s proud of losing -- whether it’s by one, two three or 50? Enough said.”
Zach Randolph: “I take it with a grain of salt. I ain’t with all that talking and Instagraming and tweeting and bluffing. You got to prove it on the court.”
Coach Dave Joerger: “I don’t do Twitter.”
In the first round of the 2012 Western Conference playoffs, the Clippers beat the Grizzlies in seven games.
