NBA Mascot of the Year: ‘Grizz’ of the Memphis Grizzlies


The Memphis Grizzlies are beyond thrilled that their mascot was named the best in all of the land for 2011. No, seriously. They’re ecstatic. From the Commercial Appeal: “It marks the first time Memphis’ mascot has won the award. ‘The NBA Mascot of the Year Award is a tremendous honor for Grizz, the Grizzlies organization and members of Grizz Nation across the world,’ said Greg Campbell, Grizzlies president of business operations. ‘We are extremely proud of the efforts of Grizz, our game presentation staff and the host of other departments who collaborate to present Grizz’s one-of-a-kind brand of entertainment year round.’”

    I OFTEN WONDER HOW THE FOLKS IN THE OUTFITS INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER. ARE THEY FRIENDS? ARE THERE RIVALRIES? ARE THERE SOME THAT ARE UNIVERSALLY HATED? IT IS THOUGHTS LIKE THESE THAT KEEP ME FROM MAKING ANY REAL PROGRESS IN LIFE.

    I think UNFROZEN CAVEMAN LAWYER should be named Slamonline mascot of the year.
