Next Kobe- Any Game OJ Mayo has a good game

Baby Jesus- The name given to Marc Gasol at this years Rookie Challenge by Chris Webber, because marc looks like the sterotypical white jesus, but with short hair.

Choking- blowing big leads, which we do often

Cold-Blooded- see Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo in the clutch

Adjustments- As the game progress teams should make changes to their style of attack, something we fail to do

Ball Stopper- When Mike Conley dribbles around for 20 out of the 24 seconds on the shot clock

We need a PG- Any Game (like most) that Mike Conley just doesn't get it done for us ala 4 points 2 assists.

 

that being said what better way if we want to make a run at the playoffs we really should put Mayo at PG, or give him the ball more. As the signature says in Mayo we will trust.

:lol: Wow. That is low, man. Using he vocab thread to attack one player and raise up your own.

 

Baby Jesus is the only acceptable one here because it was actually used in the Rookie Challenge this year.

In looking through the initial list, I thought of a few new ones:

 

Grizzlie Growlers: the first Grizzlies fan club set up to support the Grizzlies. Highlight achievement was when 50 or so fans took a road trip on the train to New Orleans. Alas, with little support or access to the team, the Growlers disbanded.

 

The Mayor: what some have proclaimed Battier may one day be

 

The Nutheads: posters in the Nuthead thread; a thread started shortly after the message board was created in which posters could talk about anything and everything. It was created in part to prevent frequent hijacking of other threads.

 

"Only in the movies and in Memphis". Don Poier, RIP.

 

Big Country: Bryant Reeves

 

Maynard the Magnificent: Silky Sullivans "lucky" goat that was paraded around the Pyramid in 2003 with the hope that the Grizzlies would get the #1 draft pick and LeBron James. Unfortunately, the Grizzlies ended up with the #2 pick which had to be forfeited to Detroit due to a years earlier trade for Otis Thorpe.

"GRIZZBALL" - sometimes said by announcers when a turnover or controversial call results in ball possession transferred to the Grizzlies. or shouted by enlivened fans to assert Grizzlies' control of the game. (abbreviated form of "Grizzlies' Ball")

Grizzy: "Slang" term used to describe hustling or in the streets "grinding". Started by the scrappy and hustling play of James Posey and Shane Battier during the playoff years and turned into a season slogan by the Grizzlies FO. GRIZZLIES another way to spell HUSTLE.

Don't get me wrong. I'm with Heisley. He said at teh beginning of the season, if we won 35 games he would be exstatic. But the way we are playing does it mean we will have no balls at all?

 

:>)

:unsure:
