The Memphis Grizzlies will be handing out stickers for fans to wrap around their throats at an upcoming home game.

The stickers, which read "GRIZZLIES," are a nod to forward James Johnson, who has the above ginormous neck tattoo reading "NAYMIN 3.9.13," in honor of the his son Naymin, who was born six weeks premature (and survived).

The stickers will be given to the first 5,000 fans at FedEx Arena on February 21. The next 5,000 will receive actual neck tattoos.
