Kanye West Called Mike Conley In Middle Of Night To Tell Him He Loves Him Playing Style
Kanye West is somewhat notorious for calling up people in the middle of the night to lavish praise on them, and it would seem that his most recent target is a somewhat unsung hero in the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley.
Conley said Yeezy rang him at 12:30 at night to just tell him how great he thinks he is.
Speaking at Media Day, Conley revealed, “He actually watches me play. That’s what I was thinking in my head, ‘He knows a lot about me.’ He wasn’t reading off a paper or anything.”
Here’s how Conley described his chat with Kanye while speaking to the media:

As for how Conley could use this to his advantage after quietly coming off the best season of his career, he had a few suggestions.
“I’m looking for a feature or something,” Conley says he told Kanye. “Like put me in the background, sample some of my music.”
Good luck with that, guys.
