An interesting querey, one that will depend a lot on Father Time.

A semi-loaded question from GrizzliesTV:

Here's how some people answered:

And then the one guy with the lulz:

For me, this answer basically comes down to whoever retires first from this current squad. So with Conley going into his prime and Gasol in the middle of his that leaves us likely looking at Tony Allen and Zach Randolph. Retirement aside, you can make an argument for both players by looking at the cultural impact they've had, but ZBo takes the cake with the production and clutch-ery of that 2011 run.

While I'm voting a firm #50 for the actual question, the reality could be that the Grizzlies currently have (4) different players that could potentially have their number retired in Beale Street Blue. I'd love to look up in the FedexForum someday and see a #9, #11, #33 and #50 basking in the glow of swirling Growl Towels.

The Grindmaster from last edition (at Blazers) was Zach Randolph.
