The Vancouver Grizzlies were a professional basketball team based in Vancouver, Canada, that played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) from 1995 to 2001. The team was part of the NBA's expansion into Canada, along with the Toronto Raptors. Despite having talented players like Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Mike Bibby, the Grizzlies struggled to find success on the court, failing to make the playoffs during their six seasons in Vancouver. In 2001, the team was sold and relocated to Memphis, where they became the Memphis Grizzlies. The Vancouver Grizzlies remain a nostalgic part of Canadian basketball history and their merchandise is still sought after by collectors.
