Pera is said to be 6 feet 3, and he supposedly has skills. During his introductory news conference with the Grizzlies, Pera said he can dunk, and he trains with former San Jose State player Terry Cannon.
“He can really jump,” Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien told Businessweek. “He can make shots. He’s technically very proficient.”
Far be it from me to say that Pera shouldn’t take Allen on, though. As a guy who feels good about himself when he donates a Hefty bag of old T-shirts to Goodwill, I think any excuse to give $100,000 to charity is a good one.
