Memphis Grizzles guard Tony Allen has played a big role in Grizzles run to the NBA Western Conference Finals.  The former Celtic has emerged as one of the NBA's most ferocious defenders and continues to be as the Griz takes on San Antonio for their first trip to the NBA Finals in franchise history.

But according to CBSSports.com, Allen watches broadcast replays during timeouts to gain an edge on his opponents.  While that edge has no wins to show for it in this series, with the Spurs up 3-0 in the series, the legend of watching replays during timeouts could gain considerable momentum if the Grizzles become the first NBA team to erase a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.
