Memphis Grizzlies Team Info
The Grizzlies have had an interesting time in the NBA since the joined as an expansion team in 1995. Then they were the Vancouver Grizzlies and while they were there the team didn't do much of anything. During their six seasons north of the border the team had a combined record of 101-300 which is a very depressing winning percentage of .252, which means the team averaged three out of four games, would be a loss. In those seasons the team only experienced two, two game winning streaks. It's normal for an expansion franchise to be bad for their first couple of seasons, but after the fourth straight season without twenty wins the bottom fell out. The city stopped caring and the Grizzlies blamed their lack of attendance on the city. The team made a good number of bad decisions, like paying Bryant“Big Country” Reeves $65 million over six years or drafting Steve Francis to see him demand a trade, and yet they still blamed it on the city and not the themselves not putting a good product out on the court that fans would like to see.
In 2001, the Grizzlies transplanted to Memphis, TN to play in the heart of the south. The team did the same thing they were doing gefore and finished their first season with a 23-59 record. After the 2001-'02 season the team brought in Jerry West to be their General Manager and build them into a respectable team and eventually a title contender. They still failed to make the playoffs, but they showed signs of life after West brought in Hubie Brown to coach the team and the Grizzlies had their first six game winning streak.
