The Memphis Grizzlies have yet to win a championship, but over the years they have had some talented players take the floor. It will be hard to name an all-time starting lineup, but I’ll give it a whirl.

Some could say Mike Bibby while others might say Jayson Williams but the Memphis Grizzlies' best at the point has to be current point guard Mike Conley. He’s the all-time assists, steals and games played leader and came off his best season in 2013-14.

Mike Miller holds the Grizzlies' career mark in three-pointers taken and made, and he is at the top of nearly every Grizzlies statistical category. The Grizzlies will miss him in 2014-15 as he is now with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This one was difficult, but the Grizzlies' best small forward would have to be Rudy Gay. Gay never led the club to a title, but his 17.9 points and nearly six rebounds have been sorely missed.

Pau Gasol belongs on the Grizzlies' all-time starting five. Among many Grizzlies records, he is the all-time rebounding and points scored and meant a great deal to the fans. He finished his Grizzlies career with 18.6 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

This was tough as well, but Shareef Abdur-Rahim should be the starting center. Even though he never played in Memphis, he still is a Grizzly and the holder of the points per game record. He's also at or near the top of several other Grizzlies records.
