The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the newest NBA franchises. The team was founded in 1995 but called Vancouver their home from 1995 until the conclusion of the 2000-2001 NBA season, relocated to Memphis after. The Grizzlies are members of the Western Conference’s Southwest Division where they face tough competition each year, as they are still searching for their first division title. Since 2004 the team has called the FedEx Forum their home which houses over 18,000 rowdy basketball fans.
In the 1996 NBA Draft the Vancouver Grizzlies selected Shareef Abdur-Rahim with the third overall pick and he played with the team until 2001. Abdur-Rahim was one of the first stars in franchise history being named to the All-Rookie First-Team and the NBA Rookie of the Month for December 1996 and February 1997. After relocating to Memphis in 2001 the organization acquired a key piece by trading for Pau Gasol. Gasol became a cornerstone player for the team until he was traded in 2008, being named the NBA Rookie of the Year and an All-Star during his time with the franchise. In the trade that shipped Pau Gasol out of town, it brought his younger brother Marc Gasol to the organization. Since being traded to the Grizzlies Marc Gasol has had a highly decorated career being selected to numerous All-Star Teams and was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the 2012-2013 season. In recent years the team has had success making the playoffs numerous times, being led by Gasol and Mike Conley Jr., the 2012-2013 NBA season saw the team reach an organization high of 56 wins before bowing out in the Western Conference Finals.
