Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The Memphis Grizzlies are celebrating not only the success of last season, but also being recognized as the number one sports franchise by ESPN magazine.

The home team celebrated their success with the city Tuesday.

Hillcrest High School shooting guard Daniel Oakley's sentiment is echoed through the community. Community members received a revitalized basketball court from the Grizzlies.

"They [are] giving back. They're making better stuff for the community so folks can stay out of trouble and stuff," said Oakley.

One of the Grizzlies players attended the event.

"We knew all along that they were number one on the court. This simply affirms that they are number one in our hearts and in our community," said Memphis Mayor A C Wharton.
