While nobody is thinking about the NBA right now, there are still dutiful employees of 30 NBA teams working to sell you season tickets. Still ticket plans and marketing campaigns being put together.

Which brings us (via a tweet from Darren Rovell of CNBC) to the Memphis Grizzlies, and the campaign to sell “power packages” using the slogan:

“We have not yet begun to grind.”

Nice.

It’s tied into their season seats campaign, which has the slogan “you witnessed the history.” (Referring to the franchise winning its first playoff game and series last season.)

Still, pretty clever with the double meaning there, Grizzlies.
