Justin Timberlake is no bandwagon fan

timberlake-grizzMemphis native and Grizzlies minority owner Justin Timberlake is as happy as anyone with the Grizzlies red-hot start to the season. He showed them some love on Twitter, but the trolls just couldn’t resist accusing him of being a bandwagon fan.

This guy tried to call him out, but Justin wasn’t having any of that.

Turns out this guy has way too much time on his hands.

If John Wall is allowed to wear an Atlanta Hawks, Steve Smith throwback in the summer, I’ll allow this from JT.

If all else fails, JT can always cite multiple song lyrics referencing his Memphisness.

e.g. Senorita

He’s a friend of mine, yes, yes I am
And he goes by the name, Justin

All the way from Memphis, Tennessee
And he’s got something special for y’all tonight

Or you know, go back to the “I am an owner of the team and was born and raised in Memphis” argument…..or whatever.

Patty Mills is currently out injured & getting himself back into playing shape after an off-season shoulder surgery. Today, he went to instagram to show how he’s going in his rehab… and… to get his guns out.

Instantly, Patty’s Spurs team-mate Manu Ginobili hit up twitter to have a crack at the Aussie:

Game, Ginobili.

However, Patty would of course, return serve:

Game, Mills.

Ginobili wasn’t finished… Taking a jab at himself to make sure that this became the best twitter conversation between NBA players so far this season:

Game, set, match, Ginobili.
