(Reuters) - Six-times NBA All-Star Pau Gasol of the San Antonio Spurs claimed another honor on Friday when he was elected to the National Basketball Players Association's executive committee. Gasol was voted in during the union's annual All-Star meeting of the board of player representatives in New Orleans. “With the number of international players in our game continuing to grow, it’s very important for us to make sure that their interests are represented on our Executive Committee,” said the union's executive director Michele Roberts.

Pau Gasol (hand) expected back for Spurs after All-Star break

San Antonio Spurs forward/center Pau Gasol (hand) is expected to be cleared to return to action after the All-Star break, head coach Gregg Popovich again stated on Wednesday. What It Means: Gasol was seen participating in some light shooting drills on Wednesday, suggesting he should be good to return after the break. Owners should continue to hold onto the big man, and his return will cut into the values of David Lee, Dewayne Dedmon and Davis Bertans. Gasol is averaging a career-low 26.4 minutes this season, and he's responded with 11.7 points (career-low), 7.9 rebounds...

The Spurs’ most dangerous four-man lineup

The Spurs’ most dangerous four-man lineup

It’s no surprise this unit plays well together, but how much will we see of it once Pau Gasol is back to full strength? And who should the fifth guy be? Over the first 41 games of the season, the foursome of Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Danny Green and Dewayne Dedmon played a total of 60 minutes together. That shouldn’t really be a surprise considering the last component, Dedmon, was (rightly) sitting behind Pau Gasol and David Lee in the depth chart and getting most of his run with the second unit. Still, it became clear early on that Dedmon’s defensive upside merited more play...

Spurs sign Joel Anthony for rest of season

The veteran center will provide depth in Pau Gasol’s absence After signing him to a pair of 10-day contracts earlier this season, the Spurs announced Sunday that they have inked center Joel Anthony for the remainder of the 2016-17 season. Anthony signed his first 10-day contract Jan. 23, six days after Spurs center Pau Gasol was diagnosed with a fractured fourth metacarpal in his left hand. Anthony’s second 10-day deal came Feb. 2. The 9-year veteran has now appeared in eight games for San Antonio, averaging 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game in an average of 6.3 minutes a...

Blake Griffin Dunk Culture, Opponents Avoid Getting Posterized

Blake Griffin Dunk Culture, Opponents Avoid Getting Posterized

The Blake Griffin dunk on Miles Plumlee is considered to be similar to the one he posterized Pau Gasol with years ago. It could be that any Blake Griffin dunk are what fans have to look forward to every time they watch a Clippers game, especially now that he’s recovered from knee surgery, which had him out for a month. Back in 2012, the Bleacher Report wrote about the dunk(s) Blake Griffin got on Pau Gasol, for which the writer was taken aback as they had initially said that people didn’t really care about his dunks. But what makes his dunk so epic is the illusion he gives of taking...

A reader wants to know how the Trail Blazers summer could have gone better. One suggestion predominates. Time for a Friday Mailbag! If you have a Portland Trail Blazers question, send it to blazersub@gmail.com. Dave Now that we are almost to the All Star Break, would love your opinion of what we did this past summer compared to what could have been, given how our other targets have also performed. For example, would you still want Parsons and Howard realizing that no ET, no AC and most likely no Mo? Pau Gasol with his injuries? Mozgov, Mahimi? Realizing that the guys who stayed at...

Full Recap: Grizzlies defense suffocates Spurs in 89-74 win

Against a Spurs team without Pau Gasol and Kawhi Leonard, the Grizzlies ended a two-plus year losing streak against the Spurs behind a defensive performance that was vintage Grizzlies. The 2016-17 season schedule for the Grizzlies carried with it a handful of quirks, one of the strangest of which was the Spurs. As always, the Grizzlies would play four games against their division rival from San Antonio. However, none of those match-ups would take place until after the calendar had turned to February. Given that anticipation, you would’ve expected a bit more intrigue for Monday’s game....
