Don’t call Justin Timberlake a bandwagon Grizzlies fan (UPDATE)

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — He may not be as ever-present as Spike Lee is with the Knicks or Jack Nicholson in Los Angeles, but Justin Timberlake has long been a fan of the Memphis Grizzlies. It makes sense, as Timberlake is a Memphis native, and he’s publicly been an NBA fan for years now. I mean, Who can forget when he served up Kenny “The Jet” Smith at the All-Star Game years ago?

And in 2012, Timberlake actually became a part-owner of the Grizzlies. So last night, it wasn’t much of a surprise when JT tweeted his support for the 10-1 Grizz.

But that didn’t sit well with at least one of his twitter followers, who accused Timberlake of being a bandwagon Grizzlies fan. And Timberlake fired right back. It’s clear who’s the owner here.

UPDATE: Just in case you didn’t believe him, the Grizz tweeted this pic of JT repping the Grizz way back in the day…

    Don’t know who to start, trade, or pickup? Create a player poll on and see what others think!

    Justin Timberlake can’t be a Band Wagon Rider when he owns a share of the Grizzlies & he is a Memphis Product.!!!

    Yeah, he’s been a fan for ages, not what I’d call bandwagon.

  4. Tom says:

    Woohoo, in your face!!!! That is a big time burn to all the people talking trash about Justin Timberlake jumping on the bandwagon.

    In the end, we know who we like. Who cares what others are saying. I love my Clippers since the days of Bo Kimble, Charles Smith, and even Danny Manning. Am I on the Clippers bandwagon? No, but Jack Nicholson is.

    What about the Cleveland bandwagon? Anyone?

    It’s the bandwagon being pulled by King Lebron in one direction and pulled in the other by Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving.

  6. I hope people do realize that Grizzlies have been very good for about 5 years.

    I think he meant to say BoyBandWagon.
