Memphis Grizzlies Ranked No. 1 Sports Franchise by ESPN Magazine


In their Franchise Issue hitting the stands Friday, ESPN The Magazine named the Memphis Grizzlies “the best franchise in sports.” The magazine broke the news Tuesday on Twitter, “The @MemGrizz are the best, Sacramento Kings are the worst & Cam Newton is on a mission. #FranchiseIssue out Friday.” ESPN determines the best franchise in sports by ownership, venue experience, affordability, fan relations, and wins and revenue directly from the fans. The Grizzlies were ranked No. 9 in 2011 and No. 5 in 2012. Memphis became ESPN’s best franchise in sports after appearing in the Western Conference Finals last season. This is definitely a coup for the small market Grizzlies!
