From: Memphis Grizzlies

Subject: Nickname Jerseys

We saw the leaked pictures of the Nickname jerseys and they look great! We're sure you're considering expanding that idea for next year, and although our record doesn't look so good at the moment, at least we're better than the Nets!

Just kidding, so in anticipation of our nickname jerseys, here are our ideas. We gave you a couple of them just in case there are any objections. (I mean seriously, Cole Train was not his first choice).
