Marc Gasol Is The Most Interesting Basketball Player In The World

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — He doesn’t shave, he tells his beard when to stop growing.

He once allowed someone to dunk on him just to see how it feels.

He corrects John Hollinger‘s math.

He is Marc Gasol, and he is the most interesting man in the world.

Well, something like that. By now you probably know how the meme goes — playing off the Dos Equis ads, any series of outlandish fictional statements can be applied to a person to brand them as the most interesting person in the world.

If the meme had to spill into the NBA, perhaps we should be surprised that it came at the hands of the internet-savvy Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera. Over the weekend, as his Grizzlies were moving into a 2-1 lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Pera took to Twitter and helped stake Gasol’s claim to the title of MIMITW (Most Interesting Man In The World)…

All pretty great. My three best attempts at furthering the meme are at the top of the post.

Can you do better? Leave us your best “Most Interesting” lines in the comments below…

    When defense gets too boring and easy for Marc, he takes off his shoe and uses it to steal the ball.
