This is pretty great.

Mike Conley is out for the season. The Memphis Grizzlies' star point guard underwent season-ending surgery on his left heel.

The heel injury has apparently been an issue for Conley for a while. He eventually just had to go through with the surgery.

"I’ve had this for three years. All the way back three years ago one of the doctors said eventually you’ll need to have this heel shaved down,” Conley said Tuesday. “I didn’t want to do it. I wanted to exhaust every option before going to that extent.

“We literally did every, single thing the last three years to alleviate the pain. I did a decent job last year, but this year seemed to be too much for me. I didn’t want to have to continue with this cycle. Hopefully, this is the answer.”

Conley underwent surgery today. It was successful.

The former Ohio State star woke up from surgery and did something pretty weird, though. He was singing Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son."

That's a great song, but still. It's pretty weird.
