Thabeet is on - when Hasheem Thabeet gets 2 or more blocks. Hasheem just got his third block of the game. I guess you could say "Thabeet is on."

 

El Capitan - cause everything sounds sexier in Spanish. Nickname for Marc Gasol, co-captain of the Memphis Grizzlies.

 

Kobe Gay - a term I yell at the tv when Rudy Gay forces a shot. Rudy has 3 defenders on him and goes for the shot. There goes Kobe Gay.

 

Who's Your Haddadi? - What Hamed Haddadi told Shaq after he dunked on him.

 

Alley-Oooops! - that gdamn alley-oops play that Lionel Hollins calls when there is less than 1 second on the clock.

Sam Young's nickname is "The Renaissance Man." His UCONN teammates gave it to him because he would always play grand piano in the hotel lobby's when the team was on the road.

I think they should have MVZ headband night. As I said on the Tillery chat, imagine a sea of fans in yellow headbands chanting "MVZ" in unison.

 

That would be awesome. As long as I get to hear some MVZ chants I'm good.

 

 

Grizzlock'd = A game changing defensive stop made by the Grizzlies.

Foot Ball: (v) Bonzi Wells attempt to combine the sports of football and basketball while exhibiting his frustration with officials and Mike Fratello during playoff basketball

 

That was close: Though shared by many Grizzlies fan upon learning that OJ Mayo had been traded for Kevin Love...therein preventing the national media from taking more unwarranted jabs at the Grizzlies while trying to be funny with headlines referring to "GAY LOVE"
