Memphis Grizzlies History

The Grizzlies franchise entered the NBA in 1995 as the Vancouver Grizzlies before moving to Memphis in 2001. The franchise struggled in Vancouver and failed to qualify for the playoffs while playing their home games in Canada. The Grizzlies improved in Memphis and were led to the playoffs for the first time by franchise player Pau Gasol. Memphis qualified for the playoffs three seasons in a row but traded Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008 and went into a temporary slump. The Grizzlies returned to the playoffs in 2011 and in the past four seasons have been one of the most consistent sides in the NBA. Big things are expected from the Grizzlies in the upcoming NBA schedule as they've reach 50+ winning records in the past two seasons.

Memphis Grizzlies Star Player: Marc Gasol

Marc Gasol was drafted in the second round, 48th overall, of the 2007 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. In 2008, his draft rights were traded by the Lakers to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a trade package that included his older brother, Pau, who went to the Lakers. Gasol met his rookie season with success, scoring 10-plus points in 10 straight games on 49-for-84 shooting in October 2008. Gasol broke the franchise rookie record of the highest field goal percentage at the end of the season by shooting 53%. The previous record was held by his older brother Pau, who shot 51.8% from the field his rookie season. Marc was named as an NBA All-Star in 2012 (becoming the first European player to win the award) as well as winning the Defensive Player of the Year award in 2013. Because of this he also made the All-Defensive Second Team and All-NBA Second Team the same year.

Memphis Grizzlies Star From the Past: Pau Gasol

Pau Gasol was drafted with the 3rd overall pick in the 2001 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks and was immediately traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. Gasol had an immediate impact on the NBA and won the Rookie of the Year award in his inaugural season. The Spaniard quickly became the Grizzlies franchise player and he led the team to their first ever playoffs appearance in 2004. Gasol became one of the first Grizzlies player to be selected for the NBA All-Star game in 2006 and in the same year played a key role in winning the World Championship for Spain.

Memphis Grizzlies Head Coach: Dave Joerger

David Joerger was hired as the Memphis Grizzlies head coach in 2013, after serving as the assistant HC with the team since 2007. Prior to his work with Memphis, Joerger was the head coach of the Dakota Wizards from 2000-2004 and 2006-2007 in the International Basketball Association, Continental Basketball Association, and the NBA Development League, winning championships in 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2007. He also coached the Sioux Falls Skyforce from 2004-2006, winning a championship in 2005. In his two seasons with Memphis, Joerger has coached the team to fantastic winning records and made the playoffs in both years. He looks to only improve in 2014/2015.
