Grizzlies’ Marc Gasol a Worthy All-Star

The other night after a victory at FedExForum, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol sat in front of his locker and considered what it would mean if he were selected to the the NBA’s Western Conference All-Star team.

He said he wasn’t concerned about “personal recognition,” but added, “It would be beautiful to represent the city and my teammates.”

On Thursday, the 7-foot-1 Gasol was named to the team and he will play in the Feb. 26 game in Orlando. And yes, it’s nice to have a little shine on the city and the franchise. It’s the third time a Grizzly has made the All-Star team (big brother Pau Gasol was the first and Zach Randolph was the second).

Marc Gasol is averaging a career-high 15 points and 10.2 rebounds this season. And he’s doing it without the help of the injured Randolph.

“He’s a very good player,” Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman said of Gasol. “And without Zach Randolph, the season he’s having is very impressive.”

Pau Gasol also made the All-Star team three times with the L.A. Lakers. But not this season.

Chalk one up for “little” brother.
