Despite having been born in Spain, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol is seen by the loyal Memphis fan base as a native son of sorts. His emergence from second-round pick to, perhaps, the best center in the NBA has been nothing short of remarkable. His path has been forged by a tremendous work ethic and a constant bettering of his on-court skills.
So, then, should we really be surprised that he’s maybe/kinda/sorta developing a 3-point stroke? Well, maybe we’re stretching things a little bit here, but if Gasol’s run of 3-pointers (19 of ’em, in fact!!) at a recent Grizzlies open practice is any indication, he may be even further diversifying his vast game.
