In 1995 the National Basketball Association commissioned a new franchise, the Vancouver Grizzlies. That franchise would last for 6 years before being relocated to Memphis in 2001. For the past 13 years, Memphis has endured heartache, jubilation, confusion and fallen in love with the Grizzlies franchise. The Grizzlies franchise has taken its identity from our gritty, blue collar town.
After nearly twenty years of play, I wanted to look at the players who have excelled in a Grizzlies uniform at each position. I took nominations, pulled each nominee’s career Grizzlies statistics, and opened up the voting to you, the fans. I have listed the starters and bench players and post the full voting results at the bottom.
