In the NBA, the only two teams that were based in Canadian venues were the Toronto Raptors and the Vancouver Grizzlies. Neither team has been overly successful, and the latter of the two teams was subsequently relocated and became the Memphis Grizzlies. Since the move, it’s been a steady climb for the Griz to contender status, thus finding Grizzlies parking spaces is hard to find unless booked in advance.
The Memphis Grizzlies play in the FedExForum, a venue constructed in 2004. The basketball team relocated to FedExForum after an initial stay at the Pyramid Arena, which began in 2001; due to the prohibitive cost to get the structure up to NBA specifications, they were moved to FedExForum instead. In addition to being the lair of the Grizzlies, the arena is also home to the Memphis Tigers NCAA team, as well as a host to concerts and athletic events such as WWE and the UFC. Finding FedExForum parking spaces will be difficult on game day, so it is best to book Memphis Grizzlies parking spaces in advance with ParkWhiz.
Both the Grizzlies and the city of Memphis depend on each other. Before the relocation, there was no major professional sports presence in Memphis. In Vancouver, the team had not done so well, particularly due to a lack of developing draft picks. The 2001 relocation solved both their problems, albeit slowly over time. The Grizzlies have yet to win an NBA or conference championship, but have recently solidified themselves as a postseason fixture. Their deepest playoff run came in 2013, falling one series short of an NBA Finals appearance, losing the conference championship to the Spurs. The emergence of a gritty defense is largely to thank for the franchise’s improvement. Finding Memphis Grizzlies parking can be difficult, so booking Memphis Basketball parking spots in advance with ParkWhiz is the best solution.
ParkWhiz is easy; all you need to do is find the game that you want to see, book your Grizzlies parking spot and print out your ParkWhiz parking pass. Once that’s done, you can relax and enjoy the game, rather than trying to find parking at the FedExForum.
