With their win over the Clippers in Game 6, the Grizzlies have advanced to the second round of the NBA Playoffs for just the second time in franchise history.
There are several reasons to be excited for their upcoming matchup against the Thunder. After all, it is a rematch of the 2011 series (the Grizzlies fell in seven games). The winner advances to the Western Conference Finals, and fans will get at least two more chances to get some of the best towels in professional sports.
Thanks to the uniquely Memphis phrases (and the passion of the people waving them), the growl towels have become as Memphis as Elvis and barbeque.
So far, during these playoffs we have seen towels with “Grit”, “Grind”, and “We don’t bluff.” All of which are great phrases to put on a towel, but are there enough sayings unique to Memphis to make up different towels for the possible 9 home playoff games remaining this season? Absolutely.
After having an interactive discussion on MSL with many Grizzlies fans, a list has been compiled.
Here is the list of possible growl towels the Grizzlies should consider:
1. I’ll beat Yo’ A$$
2. Made in Memphis
3. Grind Forth
4. United We Grind
5. Taking Care of Grizzness
6. Whoop That Trick (On the back it would say GET ‘EM)
7. Rudy Who
8. 901 (with the 0 being the Grizz logo)
9. Welcome To Memphis
10. GnG (Grit and Grind)
