The Memphis Grizzlies romped through a fun start to the season before arriving at Christmas Day, perhaps the most fun of all holidays. The Grizzlies entered the widely celebrated holiday in third place in the Western Conference with its best record ever through 25 games.
Not much would be more fun, beyond being 22-3 and No. 1 in the West.
As the Grizzlies and many other teams break for Christmas Day, people will gather together to open presents, share good food and admire the Christmas tree.
Indeed, no one can forget the singing of Christmas carols. Every person has his or her favorite, along with several others ingrained in the brain. Other Christmas songs are drilled into the mind through hours of listening to the radio in the weeks leading up to this magical day of giving.
Before going back to the "grit 'n' grind," several Memphis players will find themselves singing a few carols. Even one of the lower-profile players might end up idealizing himself in one of the carols.
Grizz fans need not imagine what players will imagine for themselves. Instead, fans can look at the following list to see which carols, whether classical or contemporary, best fits each player.
