Battier is a member of the Miami Heat, but remains a fan favorite in Memphis for his work ethic on the court and his community-minded spirit off the court. He played two stints in Memphis, from 2001 to 2006 and again in 2011.
Every so often Battier takes to Twitter and answers questions from the public. I asked him this one tonight: What’s your favorite Memphis bar?
His answer: Ernestine and Hazel’s, the former South Main brothel know for its cold beer, great jukebox and Soul Burgers.
