Since they joined the National Basketball Association (NBA) in 1995, the Memphis Grizzlies have enjoyed a loyal fan following. Whether they were playing in Vancouver or in their current location in Tennessee, the Grizz have played to packed arenas, and Memphis Grizzlies tickets remain popular.

The team was born alongside the Toronto Raptors as part of the NBA's effort at expansion in Canada. The teams first year on the court led to a pitiful 15-67 record, one of the worst records in the league. The Grizzlies struggled mightily in their early years, but once they moved from Vancouver to Memphis, everything changed.

The Grizzlies requested a move to Memphis, Tennessee, beating out the Charlotte Hornets for the chance. The drafting of Pau Gasol in 2001 coupled with the skill and talent of Shane Battier gave the Grizzlies a leg up in their stats for the season. Gasol and Battier helped the Grizzlies make their first playoff appearance in team history in 2004. They would advance to the playoffs each of the next two years, and although they made first round exits each time, it signaled a big step forward for the franchise.

Gasol and Battier eventually moved on, but they certainly left their mark. Today, Grizzlies fans expect their team to be alive come the post season, and that has certainly been the case as of late. The 2011 playoffs found the Grizzlies advancing to the Western Conference Semifinals, and two years later they made it to the conference finals behind stars such as Zach Randolph. Whatever the future holds, it's clear things have changed in Memphis forever.

Still in their NBA infancy, this Southwestern Division franchise roars down the court with a lot of heart and a ton of soul. A great ticket anytime, reviews declare that a Grizzlies game is a great experience for the whole family. This year could belong to the Memphis Grizzlies!
