Is Marc Gasol Improving his Game or Just Getting Fit?

Is Marc Gasol Improving his Game or Just Getting Fit?

With Spain out of the FIBA tournament, it's time to see if Marc Gasol is improving with the eve of Grizzlies training camp upon us. There are many, such as myself, who have been playing close attention to Marc Gasol’s play over in Spain. With the thought of Marc’s free agency looming, most of Grizz Nation can’t help but analyze if Marc Gasol is improving or declining as he will soon enter his thirties. Plus, he has the added pressure that this is a contract year for him. And now that Spain is out of the FIBA tournament, it's time to take a look at Gasol. Is he getting better, staying...

Can Lionel Hollins and Brook Lopez make the Brooklyn Nets a top flight defense?

During his final three years in Memphis, ESPN notes, Lionel Hollins' Grizzlies were a top 10 defensive team in each of those seasons, anchored by an unlikely defender, Marc Gasol, who came into the league without a lot of references as a defensive-minded center. In fact, Draft Express noted before Gasol's rookie year, He doesn't make a great impact on the defensive end. His limited mobility gets exploited in pick-and-roll situations that the opponents throw at him; he's not a great intimidator, he allows smaller opponents to shoot over him; and given his superb size, he's not the best...

Marc Gasol looks smooth on a steal and breakaway dunk in FIBA World Cup play

I know, I'm probably getting a little carried away and/or obsessed with Marc Gasol in the past few weeks.
Spain ease past Iran for 90-60 blow out.

Spain ease past Iran for 90-60 blow out.

Spain destroy Iran to come away with a 30 point win on the back of strong performances by the Gasol brothers. Despite decent performances from Haddadi and Kamrani Iran could do very little to stop a dominant Spanish team from blowing them away in their opening match ofthe FIBA world cup. Kamrani finished with 18 points on 7-11 shooting including 3-6 from behind the arc and Haddadi had 16 points on 7-17 and also added 15 rebounds. But as a team Iran would go on to shoot just 39% from the field and 61% from the free throw line. But Pau and Marc Gasol ran the show for a Spanish team that won...

The Gasol Factor

What’s worse than an angry Spaniard? One who seeks revenge. And after last year’s devastating injury and gut-wrenching first round loss to OKC, I’m pretty sure Marc Gasol will be searching for just that this season: revenge. When Pau was traded, most doubted if Marc would have much success as a replacement. And while he’s now a one time All-Star and is one of the cornerstones of the Memphis franchise, he still doesn’t have a coveted championship ring. The guy’s a 7'1" giant from overseas, but he’s made Memphis his home. Since coming here, Marc has always averaged more than 7...

Marc Gasol looks like he plays professional basketball for the first time in his life

Big Spain has never looked so good. Following a year of marital body inflation and lowered physical activity from a knee injury, Marc Gasol looks, for lack of any better way of putting it, damn good. Take a look at the muscle definition showing up in his FIBA World Cup exhibitions: And look at the Wendigo here!! How long has it been since he's feasted upon the flesh of man? There's no belly there anymore, folks. And this comes after looking like this only 3 months ago in the NBA Playoffs: And, hold your breath, looking like this 10 years ago in Spain: Is Marc Gasol getting into...
