The Memphis Grizzlies are a professional basketball team based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Grizzlies were founded in 1995, as a part of the NBA expansion to Canada, forming in Vancouver, British Columbia. One name in contention for the team was the "Mounties", however the name could not be licensed from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and there was a fear that the name would not attract a younger demographics.

By 2001 the Vancouver Grizzlies were sold and would move to Memphis, playing first in the Pyramid Arena, and later at the FedEx Forum. The Grizzlies have had four first round NBA playoff losses, the last making into the post season in 2005-06. The Grizzly Bear is a symbol of the BC area, and they are not common in the south-central United States.
