A list of the best Memphis Grizzlies of all time. Originally based in Vancouver, the Grizzlies franchise moved to Memphis ahead of the 2001-2002 season. The move to Tennessee has proven to be a wise one for the Grizzlies. The team made multiple playoff appearances since it moved south and the players on those teams are some of the best in team history. Even when the team makes a controversial move, like the trade of Pau Gasol, one of the most popular Grizzlies ever and one of the best current NBA players, it turns out to work out to the team's advantage. In exchange for Pau, the Grizzlies acquired his brother Marc, who was named Defensive Player of the Year for the 2012-13 season along with several other players.The same goes for when the team traded the popular Shane Battier for a draft pick that became the Grizzlies star small forward, Rudy Gay. 

The team has drafted well in its history. Between Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Mike Bibby and Mike Conley, the Grizzlies have had a degree of success in the NBA Draft.

Some of the best players in Memphis history have been players who were previously on other teams. Zach Randolph has developed into one of the best players in Grizzlies history. Z-Bo is one of the top players in the league today and played for the Los Angeles Clippers before being traded to the Grizzlies.
