The Memphis Grizzlies were founded in 1995 as the Vancouver Grizzlies. They have been playing in Memphis Tennessee since 2001. They play their home games in the FedExForum in front of up to 18,119 viewers. The team colors of the Grizzlies are light blue, navy, gray and gold. The Grizzlies play in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference.
The Vancouver Grizzlies were the NBA's attempt to gain a foothold in Canada in 1995 with the Toronto Raptors. While the Raptors struck, the Grizzlies suffered from disinterest and empty halls, so the franchise was relocated to Memphis in 2001. With Pau Gasol you also had the franchise player in your own ranks, who was traded for Shareef Abdur-Raheem. With Rudy Gay and Mike Conley the team was strengthened year after year. With the exchange of Pau Gasol for the draft rights to his brother Marc Gasol and the commitment of Zach Randolph, a new era began. The defensive, hard-playing Grizzlies created a new style of play called Grit n ’Grind. In 2009, the aging star Allen Iverson was signed, but after only a few games, he was separated again. In 2011 they surprisingly eliminated the lowest seeded team from the highest seeded San Antonio Spurs in the first playoff round, which so far only very few teams have achieved in the playoffs. However, the Grizzlies were never able to achieve much more success, so that after a few player and coach changes in 2017 the upheaval was initiated. Gradually, seasoned players of the Grit n ’Grind era left the Grizzlies and currently trying to rebuild with young players like Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr.

The current logo has been showing a bear's head from the front since 2005, one half of which is light blue and the other half dark blue. The eyes are yellow and the team name is written in dark blue below the grizzly. A gray contour was introduced in 2018 and the Grizzlies lettering is no longer curved. Before that, the Memphis Grizzlies used the Vancouver Grizzlies logo for 2 years, only with the city name Memphis. This one showed a brown grizzly bear with a red basketball in one paw. The lettering Grizzlies was curved above the bear in green, while the city name was in red above it. The current logo with the grizzly head is usually used on Memphis Grizzlies Hats. The historical logo, on the other hand, is almost never seen on hats - if then with the city of Vancouver and not with Memphis.
