Head Coach: J.B. Bickerstaff
The Memphis Grizzlies is an NBA team situated in Memphis, Tennessee and competes in the league as a member of the Western Conference Southwest Division. Originally, the Memphis Grizzlies were established as the Vancouver Grizzlies, an expansion team that entered the NBA for the 1995/96 season, which makes it among the youngest teams in the league. However, the team applied with the NBA to relocate to Memphis on March 2001 and was given permission by the league. This makes the Grizzlies the first major professional sports team from the four largest major pro sports leagues to permanently play home games in Memphis. All home matches of the franchise are held at the FedExForum.
The Grizzlies only appeared in the playoffs in the 2003-04 season after clinging onto 6th seed. Currently, the franchise regularly appears in the postseason but are yet to achieve Division or Conference titles.
