    Synopsis

    In 1995, Vancouver got its first and only NBA team: the Vancouver Grizzlies. They were the worst team in the NBA, placing dead last for five of their six seasons. To the fans they left behind, the Grizzlies are remembered as an embarrassment, but that didn’t matter to then seven-year-old Kat Jayme, whose dream was to be the first girl to play in the NBA. For Kat, the team inspired her to dream big and now she is on a mission to find her favorite Grizzly: Bryant “Big Country” Reeves. Currently a rancher in Gans, Oklahoma (population 307), he is being inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame which is where one childhood fan’s search for him begins.
