"NBA live scores each and everyday"
The Memphis Grizzlies team was established in 1995 in Vancouver, British Columbia along with the Toronto Raptors as part of the NBA's expansion to Canada. It was relocated to Memphis in 2001. Nickname Grizzlies was chosen after the original name Mounties was abandoned following objections by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the name was kept upon moving to Memphis.
The team logo is a snarling Grizzly's face in two shades of blue with yellow eyes. One of its stars is Spanish Paul Gasol who was originally drafted by the Atlanta hawks in 2001 but was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies where he played 7 seasons and won the Rookie of the Year award in his first season with the Grizzlies. He now plays for the Lakers.
The team colors are dark blue, powder blue and yellow. The Grizzlies sport a jersey in white for home games and blue for road games, both with light blue linings on the side.
The Heats home uniform is in white and the road uniform is in black. The team also sports an alternate red jersey, which was introduced during the 2001-2002 season, and is the unofficial Heat road uniform during the NBA Playoffs. They are also the only NBA team to place the NBA logo on the right shoulder instead of having it on the left.
