Overshadowed, somewhat, by the ejections of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, and the general improbability of the Warriors ever losing—let alone losing to a team starting both Andrew Harrison and Jarell Martin—was another instant classic performance by Marc Gasol, who is wonderful.
Spain’s wonderful Gasol-led national team today took on a Czech Republic squad that was distressingly overpowered given the presence of Wizards’ backup and future All-NBA guard Tomas Satoransky. This was a Eurobasket group stage match, played in Romania.
Marc Gasol, one of the few Grizzlies still standing, was still staring at the opposite basket when he flung this slick assist in their win over the Magic last night. He stole the ball, spotted a streaking Troy Williams out of the corner of his left eye, and didn’t bother to turn around, instead hurling it backwards…
The Memphis Grizzlies got themselves an impressive win on the road against the Los Angeles Clippers last night. The Grizz were down 107-106 with 23 seconds to play when Marc Gasol stepped up to hit a game-winning three from the corner.
After Tuesday night's game against the Hawks, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol was giving daps to fans as he headed into the locker room. One fan did not want any of Gasol's daps, though, and pulled the ol' pull-the-hand-back-and-rub-your-hair handshake prank.
Look, the NBA season is too damn long. Even I, an NBA junkie that watches at least 200 games a year, can see that. Too many teams are tanking, too many teams are on energy crippling back-to-backs, and too many teams have injuries to fully showcase 82 games of high-quality basketball. Among the numerous proposals for…
The NBA season is right around the corner, and you know what that means: Time for another preseason survey in which the league's 30 general managers answer various questions of varying degrees of inanity. You'll note that, way down at the bottom, the NBA asks an especially weird one:
Here's Marc Gasol answering questions from the media after helping his team to a Game 5, series-clinching victory over the Thunder. At about the 25-second mark, a reporter asks him how meaningful a trip to the Western Conference finals is to the franchise. His response is priceless.
Oklahoma City is looking suspiciously like a team that is going to lose a second-round series. Kevin Durant posted 25 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals, while Serge Ibaka chipped in 13 points, 10 boards and 4 blocks. And still Memphis ground out an 87-81 win for a 2-1 series lead on an afternoon when both…
This... this is not appropriate.
