MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - With an agreement reached, Tony Allen can focus his attention on his upcoming wedding. The 'Grindfather' is getting married this month. So what do you get an NBA super star?

The bride and groom's wedding registry offers a personal glimpse into the fan favorite.

Macy's. Pottery Barn. Bed Bath and Beyond. According to the knot.com, that's where Tony Allen and fiancée Desiree Rodriguez are registered.

"This is the kind of guy you can't give really anything to. He just about has everything," says fan Eugene Williams.

The couple's list looks like it could belong to any other about to walk down the aisle: mixing bowls from Macy's, Pottery Barn pillows.

Lisa and Jake Wheeler are at Bed Bath and Beyond shopping for a friend's wedding. So what would they get TA for his?

"Pots and pans," they say.

"The cake stand," says Williams.

"I'd probably get him some nice cups," says Hannah Coll.

"Cookie cutters," says Katherine Reddick. "So they can make all different kinds of cookies."

She and her mom say TA seems down to earth, walking the same aisles as his fans.

"The same places," says Sandra Reddick-Austin. "He's still human. He still needs those general things."

As to whether fans think Allen actually picked out all these items?

"That's definitely not him. His fiancée," laughs Coll.

"I would have thought he would have a little more extravagant stuff, but that's pretty normal," says Williams. "We know he spends his money wisely though. He's not going to spend a thousand dollars for something that costs $100."

Allen gets married in Boston on July 13th.
