During the grizzlies GNG Era we had a lot of great memories. We went to the WCF. And we played really really good during those seasons. The main players people talk about in the GNG Era were Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, Zack Randolph, Rudy Gay, and Tony Allen, Vince Carter. The catchphrase for the era was Believe Memphis. The fans went wild at the games and the games were so much fun! Fans still remember the era to this day.
The era was started basically when we got Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. GNG stands for Grit ‘N’ Grind!
We went to the WCF in the 2013 playoffs. We beat the LA Clippers in the first round 4-2. Then we beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1. Then in the conference finals we got swpt by the Spurs 4-0. But we still made the playoffs each year until the 2017 season. The grizzlies were and still are slept on to this day. With the new era of the grizzlies I think we will do good in the next couple of years but who knows?
We traded Rudy Gay to the Raptors in a six team trade! Tony Allen signed with the Pelicans in 2017. Vince Carter signed with the Kings and so did Zack Randolph in the 2017 offseason. At the trade deadline in the 2018-2019 nba season we traded Marc Gasol for Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles, and a 2024 second round pick. Then at the draft lottery that offseason we got the 2nd pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. We traded Mike Conley the night before the draft. Then the era was over and we drafted Ja Morant at the Draft. What was your favorite memory in the Era?
