With approximately 130 employees of the Grizzlies organization and FedExForum, Memphis guard Courtney Lee wanted to show some appreciation for all of their behind-the-scenes work.

By providing Chipotle for lunch. Because "Chipotle is life."

Even though the players aren't able to develop relationships with each and every staff member, they know their hard work makes playing basketball for the Grizzlies possible.

"Chipotle is life," Lee said, per Ronald Tillard of the Commercial Appeal. "In the offseason I eat that probably four times a week, especially after working out. I always go with my brother or my friends. We go there, chill and eat. It's one of my favorite spots."

The 30-year-old guard made sure to address the room and let everyone know how much the entire team appreciates their hard work:
