Memphis Grizzlies History

Few teams in the NBA are more anonymous than the Memphis Grizzlies. Memphis has never won a championship of any kind since joining the NBA as an expansion team in Vancouver, where they operated from 1995 through 2001. They were one of the worst teams of all-time in their six seasons in Canada, never winning more than 23 games in a season before their move to Memphis.

Since moving to Memphis for the 2001-02 season, the Grizzlies have been more successful. They made the playoffs for the first time during the 2004-05 season, and they made the postseason for three straight seasons.

The 2010s were the most successful period for the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grit and Grind Grizzlies went to the playoffs for seven straight seasons, and they were a tough out in the playoffs with veterans like Zach Randolph and Tony Allen and young center Marc Gasol. Their most successful run came during the 2012-13 season when the Grizzlies knocked off the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder to reach the Western Conference Finals. Unfortunately, they were swept in the conference finals by the San Antonio Spurs.

Memphis is in position to challenge for supremacy in the Western Conference once again with a new collection of young, talented players highlighted by Ja Morant. The Grizzlies went 56-26 during the 2021-22 season, and they showed that they weren’t scared of the five-time champion Golden State Warriors.
