Celebrating their 25th season in existence this year, the Memphis Grizzlies threw it back to their Vancouver roots by wearing the much-adored classic teal uniforms in certain games this season, with the Vancouver wordmark on the jersey as well as the original court design intact.
It was a bit of a treat for fans of the original Vancouver team, or just anyone that enjoyed one of the finer jerseys in NBA history. In fact, the throwback jersey was a hit among Grizzlies players, too... and now, young Grizzlies star Jaren Jackson Jr. is advocating for the team to continue rolling with it by bringing back the home whites next.
Frankly, the white Vancouver jerseys can’t hold a candle to the teals — the teal is the reason that it’s popular! — but we’re still all for bringing back that era of Vancouver Grizzlies design back to the modern day.
Hopefully, though, we haven’t seen the last of the teal jerseys after this season. They really were fantastic to see again.
