MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

One of the greatest players ever to wear an NBA uniform, Magic Johnson, says the Memphis Grizzlies have a unique shot at playing for the NBA title.

The former Laker All-Pro says the Grizzlies' grit and grind, inside-out style of play makes Memphis a tough match-up on the path to the championship.

"As long as the two-headed monster, Gasol and Randolph, play well, I think they've got a shot to go all the way," explained Johnson. "I wouldn't be surprised if them and Golden State go to the Western Conference Finals. I'll be back here again."

The Magic Johnson Foundation brought him to Memphis on Friday to announce a $30,000 college scholarship for students at Booker T. Washington High School.
