Lakers great Michael Cooper diagnosed with cancer

Marc Gasol’s 2013 Defensive Player of the Year award has been hailed as a breakthrough for advanced ways of thinking about basketball. Gasol averaged just 7.8 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.0 steals per game that season – hardly the typical per-game defensive numbers that catch the eye of award voters. But Gasol impressed so much through his subtle contributions, he won the award...

Ed Davis, Lakers agree to 2 year deal.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Ed Davis have agreed to a 2 year deal worth $2M. Davis will have a player option for the 2nd year. This is a bargain of a deal for the Lakers, in what I would call a savvy deal. Davis was stuck in Memphis behind Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol and did not get to show case his talents. Davis is a tremendous shot blocker and crashes the boards on both ends of...

Memphis Grizzlies: recent play puts playoff chances in jeopardy

The Memphis Grizzlies’ chances of making it into the postseason are not as golden as they may appear. While the Grizzlies currently hold the 8th seed in the Western Conference, the Phoenix Suns are very close to taking that last playoff spot away from them.

Gasol's surprise return sparks Grizzlies

MEMPHIS -- Only the return of Elvis would have pleased the city of Memphis more. And until the rest of the country saw the score, most people would have been more likely to believe Elvis' return. After 23 games on the shelf with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol returned to the lineup -- the starting lineup -- Tuesday night. His 12 points helped Memphis beat Oklahoma...

WATCH: Marc Gasol delivers impressive full-court assist

I think Darth Vader would sum up Marc Gasol's full-court assist at EuroBasket 2013 by saying, "Impressive. Most impressive." During Spain's clash with Serbia in the quarter finals at EuroBasket yesterday, Gasol found himself pinned underneath the basket with the ball while a streaking Sergio Lull was making his way to the opposite side for a wide open layup. ...

(PICTURES) Marc Gasol Was One Awkward Looking High Schooler

Marc Gasol’s game was transformed immensely since he entered the league in the 2008-2009 season. Gasol started out as just a big body off the bench, and has turned into the Defensive Player of the Year and an NBA All-Star. He has developed a sweet midrange jump shot, some solid post moves, and a basketball IQ that is higher than any other center’s in the NBA. While his transformation...
