The NBA Weekly Column is back but this time the focus is on the grind during the season. A certain group of soldiers in Memphis have used the daily grind to their advantage, helping them climb the power rankings and set a precedent for the entire league.
These guys may be smiling here but Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are as mean as they come down low. Their nasty attitude has steered...
Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol is playing for a contract this season, and he got the year off to a strong start with 32 points and nine rebounds in a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
