Even Kanye West knows Mike Conley is underrated

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Mike Conley is beloved in Memphis, but if you ask him, his biggest fan might not even be a Memphian.

Conley spoke to reporters at Grizzlies Media Day and recalled the time he received a phone call from Kanye West.

Conley said Kanye let him know that he admires him as a player and said he hates how underrated Captain Clutch is. (Most Memphians probably agree!)

"I'm looking for a feature or something," Conley joked. "Put me in the background, sample some of my music, you know."

Conley said he never knew Kanye watched his games before the call.
