It’s the offseason, which means (outside of the schedule release) we’ve reached the point where most of the conversations are just recaps of the offseason, the free agents still in limbo (hey there, JaMychal), and potential trades. In other words, things get a little weird.
But that also means there’s an opportunity for fun, non-basketball-centric stuff, and someone at the Sacramento Kings’ site did just that. A few days ago, Chris Muñoz took this opportunity to imagine NBA-themed football helmets. You can check out all of them right here.
The Grizzlies were one of the teams lucky enough to receive the mock-up treatment. Muñoz imagined three different styles for the Grizzlies, two using their current Beale Street Blue color scheme, and another (shown below) based on the old Vancouver colors.
The Vancouver one is my personal favorite, though the fact that it reminds me of the old ManiAX helmets may have something to do with that. Hop over to the link above and check out the other Grizzlies helmets, as well as the rest of the teams. They’re worth a look.
