There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Memphis Grizzlies and Philadelphia 76ers.
And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Grizzlies and the 76ers.
Allen Iverson, often referred to as “AI” or “The Answer,” is celebrated for his remarkable skills, individualistic style, and cultural impact on the game. Despite standing at a relatively modest 6 feet tall in a league of giants, Iverson’s heart and talent made him one of the most dominant and influential players of his generation.
Drafted first overall by the 76ers in the 1996 NBA Draft, Iverson quickly made an impact, winning the NBA Rookie of the Year award. Over the course of his illustrious career, he became an 11-time NBA All-Star and won the NBA MVP award in 2001. That same year, Iverson led an underdog 76ers team to the NBA Finals against the Lakers.
Known for his lightning-fast crossover, fearless drives to the basket, and relentless scoring ability, Iverson averaged 26.7 points per game over his career. His style, both on and off the court, made waves; from his tattoos and cornrows to his iconic arm sleeve, Iverson became emblematic of a cultural shift in the NBA.

Danny Green is celebrated for his three-point shooting prowess and staunch perimeter defense. After playing college basketball for the University of North Carolina, where he won an NCAA championship in 2009, Green was selected in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Though he had a slow start to his NBA career, Green eventually found his footing with the San Antonio Spurs. He was part of the Spurs’ 2014 NBA Championship team and set a record for most three-pointers in an NBA Finals series that year.
Green’s value as a “3-and-D” player has kept him in demand. He played for the Toronto Raptors, contributing to their 2019 NBA Championship win. After his stint in Toronto, Green played for the Los Angeles Lakers and was instrumental in their 2020 NBA Championship run, marking his third NBA title with three different teams.
Ish Smith was drafted as the 17th pick in the second round of the 2010 NBA Development League Draft by the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Though he went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft, he made his NBA debut later that year with the Houston Rockets.
Primarily known as a journeyman point guard and a valuable role player, Smith’s quickness and ability to distribute the ball have been his standout attributes.
Over his NBA career, Smith has played for an incredible 13 different teams, including the Grizzlies, Warriors, Magic, 76ers, Pistons, Wizards, Hornets and Pistons (and that’s barely over half!).
