New, comments

Every day until Christmas we'll be taking a look at past and present players that donned the most popular jersey numerals for the Grizzlies (Vancouver and Memphis). Vote for your favorite player for each numeral!

We've been looking into the history of the Grizzlies uniforms, now it's time to look at the numerals on those uniforms.

I find it very interesting how certain numerals "appear" to fans, i.e., some look better and more appealing than others. It's also interesting how certain numerals "fit" a player. Does Tony Allen not look like a #9?

Also intriguing is the fact that over half of the available numbers (0 up through 99 and 00) have never been worn by any Grizzlies player. A total of (42) different jersey numerals have been used in the Grizzlies franchise, and we're going to look at the most popular and determine who was the best player to wear each numeral.
