The Grizzlies have played their home games at the FedExForum since 2004.

The Memphis Grizzlies are an American professional basketball team based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Grizzlies play in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The team was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1995 along with the Toronto Raptors as part of the NBA's expansion into Canada. The Grizzlies and the Raptors became the first non-United States teams to join the NBA since 1946.[1] After spending six seasons in Vancouver, the Grizzlies relocated to Memphis in the 2001–02 season.[2] The Grizzlies have played their home games at the FedExForum since 2004.[3] Although the Grizzlies have competed in the postseason three times, they have never won a playoff game or a playoff series.[4] The Grizzlies are owned by Michael Heisley and several locals including J.R. Hyde, Andy Cates, and Elliot Perry.[5]

There have been 10 head coaches for the Grizzlies franchise. The franchise's first head coach was Brian Winters, who coached for two seasons.[6] Winters is the franchise's all-time leader in regular-season games coached (184),[6] and Mike Fratello is the franchise's all-time leader in regular-season game wins (95).[7] Hubie Brown is the only Grizzlies head coach to have won the NBA Coach of the Year Award.[8] Brown was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor,[a] in 2005.[9] Lionel Hollins, Tony Barone, and Marc Iavaroni have spent their entire NBA head coaching careers with the Grizzlies.[10][11][12] Iavaroni was fired by the Grizzles on January 22, 2009. Hollins was named as Iavaroni's successor, though Johnny Davis was the head coach for two games before Hollins' third term with the team.[13]
