Yesterday, NBA 2K 18 finally released its long-awaited “All-Time Teams,” the best-of-the best players from all 30 NBA franchises. And while the Grizzlies didn’t manage to make the trailer (shocking, I know), they were given their own roster.

Memphis Grizzlies All-Time Roster

Player (Rating) Starter/Reserve
Player (Rating) Starter/Reserve
Mike Conley (87) Starter
Tony Allen (85) Starter
Shareef Abdur-Rahim (86) Starter
Pau Gasol (92) Starter
Marc Gasol (93) Starter
Zach Randolph (88) Reserve
Shane Battier (85) Reserve
Mike Bibby (85) Reserve
Jason Williams (84) Reserve
Mike Miller (83) Reserve
Rudy Gay (83) Reserve
Byron Scott (80) Reserve
Greg Anthony (80) Reserve
Bonzi Wells (80) Reserve
James Posey (80) Reserve

Most of the names are familiar, including all four members of the Core Four, as well as Pau Gasol, Shane Battier, Jason Williams, Mike Miller, and others. It also includes members (like Shareef Abdur-Rahim) from the Vancouver iteration of the team, before they moved to Memphis.

It’s a bit disappointing that Z-Bo wasn’t given a starting spot, but I suppose they had to put the higher-rated Pau alongside his brother for sentimentality’s sake. It’s also a little surprising Tony Allen’s rated so highly. I guess the NBA 2K guys put a lot of emphasis on defense.
