They were arguably the worst basketball team in NBA history, yet they still have a soft spot in our hearts.
Despite leaving town 18 years ago, Vancouver Grizzlies merchandise has made a comeback. That’s obvious when you check out a local sports store that knows what they’re doing or take a walk around the city.
- The original Vancouver Grizzlies logo was a Toronto Raptors reject
- NBA commissioner says 'it would be nice to have a team in Vancouver'
- Raptors could end a 232-season Canadian major pro sports championship drought
Still, one spectator caught the eye of basketball fans watching Monday night’s NBA Finals game in Toronto. Sticking out from a sea of Raptors fans was a guy wearing a teal Vancouver Grizzlies warmup jacket, with their secondary logo on the back.
The Grizzlies fan was sitting in one of the most premium seats in the arena — second row courtside near centre court — so he was visible on the television broadcast.
With apologies to Genie Bouchard, PK Subban, and all the other celebrities in attendance, nobody was better dressed than this guy:

The fan was wearing an authentic Vancouver Grizzlies warmup jacket (the ones the players wore) from their inaugural season in 1995-96. Remarkably, the jacket is still available to purchase online — for USD $200.
Fans loved it.
