VIDEO: Grizzlies' Tony Allen grits and grinds his way through karaoke

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Memphis Grizzlies' shooting guard and defensive guru Tony Allen is a lot of things. He's an amazing presence on Twitter. He's one of the best defensive players in the NBA. He's both a gritter and a grinder.

But he is not someone that can deliver Montell Jordan's "This is how we do it" when he needs to bring it on the microphone. Thankfully, he was paired up with someone who can really carry the performance and keep the flow of the song going until TA jumps in hedge on the lyrics.

Maybe that wasn't fair though. Tony just blanked on the words and even admitted he didn't know why he froze up on the mic with a song he's probably rapped along with 1,000 times.

I'm sure if he's given another song to perform that he'll do a great job and really bring...

Never mind.
