Jamaal Lee Tinsley (born February 28, 1978, in Brooklyn, New York) is an American professional basketball player, currently a point guard for the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association. Tinsley was drafted out of Iowa State University by the then-existing Vancouver Grizzlies (who relocated to Memphis) with the 27th pick of the 2001 NBA Draft, and was immediately dealt to the Hawks, and then on to the Pacers on draft night.

As a teenager, Tinsley developed his game playing streetball at New York City's legendary Rucker Park. Tinsley's streetball nickname is "Mel Mel The Abuser". He played college basketball for two schools in his four year collegiate career, Mount San Jacinto Community College and Iowa State.

During the two seasons he played at MSJC, Jamaal was the two-time Foothill Conference MVP (1998 & 1999) and the Eagles' career leader in assists and steals.
