Booking Memphis Grizzlies Player Appearances
In 1995, the Memphis Grizzlies were actually a part of the Canadian expansion and started their franchise as the Vancouver Grizzlies. In 2001, the team was relocated to Memphis, Tennessee where they reside today as members of the Southwest Division in the Western Conference. The Grizzlies are the only professional sports team to play in Memphis with the other teams like the Titans and Predators playing in Nashville. Even though the team is quite young by NBA standards, they have produced some of the best players in the history of the league.
Before the team moved to Memphis it struggled in its infancy even though stars like Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Steve Francis were a part of the Grizzlies’ team. After moving, they acquired one of their biggest stars in Paul Gasol who won the Rookie of the Year Award. They also drafted Shane Battier, known as the “unofficial spokesman” for the team. The team began advancing to the playoffs but did not make it to the finals. With many changes in the front office and within the coaching staff, the Grizzlies entered the new century ready to make some noise in the NBA. In 2008, Rudy Gay was signed to the team, along with Marc Gasol, Paul’s younger brother.
