The best ways to use Grizzlies coach David Fizdale's awesome catchphrases in your daily life NBA

Abstract:The Grizzlies dropped into an 0-2 hole in their first-round series with a loss Monday night against the Spurs, but Memphis coach David Fizdale definitely won his postgame press conference.

Fizdale erupted after pointing out the disparity in free throws between the two teams. The Grizzlies shot 13 of 15 from the free-throw line while the Spurs finished 31 of 32. Kawhi Leonard took more trips to the charity stripe than Memphis' entire roster, shooting a perfect 19 of 19.


The whole rant is fantastic — and likely to make Fizdale's wallet lighter — but two specific phrases took it to the next level: "They're not gonna rook us" and the closing "Take that for data."

Those words fused together into beautiful, bite-sized morsels. Maybe the Grizzlies won't win this series (or a game), but Fizdale's new catchphrases will live on.

At this point, you might be asking, "How do I work Fizdale's words into my daily lexicon?" Great question! And we're here to help.

"They're not gonna rook us."

— When the Waffle House waiter doesn't give you a full serving of hash browns. (Overnight shift does not apply. You will get slapped in that scenario.)

— When the people in front of you in the line to the bar don't have to pay a cover charge, but then the bouncer asks you for five dollars.

— When you're a first-grader at the park and the third-graders push you off the swing set.

— When the opposing chess team tries to intimidate you before the big tournament.

— When United Airlines tells you to enjoy a "safe and happy flight."

"Take that for data."

— When you file your taxes, even if the math is wrong.

— When you spell your name and fill in all of the bubbles correctly on a standardized test.

— When you are able to actually pay your rent and still have money left in your checking account.

— When you open Microsoft Excel by accident, then immediately close it.

— When you finally get to destroy that trash printer.
