Grizzlies Delay Promotional Giveaway
The Memphis Grizzlies announced the team flip-flop giveaway set to be handed out to the first 5,000 fans arriving for the contest against the Los Angeles Clippers Friday had been "flipped due to a manufacturing flop," according to the Grizzlies' website.
The details of the manufacturing error were not revealed.
The team instead handed out vouchers to the first 5,000 fans who attended the Grizzlies' 97-79 loss in Memphis, where temperatures only reached the mid-30s Friday.
Those who received a voucher can retrieve their warm-weather footwear April 14 through 17 at the FedEx Forum. On April 14, the team also will offer free parking and have special deals at the Grizz Den by adidas.
