Grizzlies Vocabulary

Recommended Posts

Here's one that I just remembered after posting it and if the originator sees it they can correct the spelling.

 

Gelvelop - The belief that a young team will see improvement over time as they gel together.

 

HA!

 

Forgot about that one.

That was back in the Marcaroni years, otherwise known as the Dark Ages.

 

Is Marcaroni in here?

Should be a cuss word if it is.

and the spanish forum is one of the references for the team vocabulary and nicknames:

 

MVP jacobsen :lol:

 

"pollo sin cabeza" lowry (no-head chicken,for his insensate run style),sometimes called "cabraloca lowry" (crazy goat lowry) for the same thing

 

and many others

3YS - 3 Year Scam

 

Originally called the 3 Year Plan...

I can't believe someone would write that. The Grizzlies, despite embarrassing losses, are just a game out of the playoffs and are within striking distance of two more teams despite being one of the youngest teams in the league.

 

Scartoma - The mind sees what it wants to see.

In honor of all the posts regarding the OKC Game/ Tony Allen Show:

 

"Clutchier" : to be more of a clutch player than someone else.

"Funky Zone"

 

 

Defense ran to make a 7'3" center not look like the worst draft pick since Kwame Brown

Congrats, I think it has the sticking power of throwing dried out dog turds at the ceiling.

Updated 3YP to note it successfully seeing the team in the playoffs.

 

Any catchy terms related to the playoff beards? Or is "Playoff Beards" the best term. I think it deserves a spot on the list to preserve it for future grizzly fans.

 

Also looking for Tony Allen nicknames (or any other player nicknames that are missing. Not just making ones up, but ones actually used.)

I know this refers to Brian Cardinal, but does anyone remember the origins of where it came from?

Just an observation: The custodian and the janitor can also refer to the role best played by BC. Not on the floor. Around the building.

3YS - 3 Year Scam

 

Originally called the 3 Year Plan...

 

I've been cruising this thread. Obviously 3YS has become obsolete. There should be something about Heisley's guarantee.

 

Maybe the Midsouth Suit exchange: You'll love the way we look in the playoffs. I guarantee it.

;)

I deemed 3YS inappropriate to add to the main list anyway.
