• Marc Gasol
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Marc Gasol is happy with the team’s choice for its new head coach.

    “He’s always so positive, he always helps me understand, our communication has been really good,” Gasol said. “We’re both going in the same direction. And that’s important.” Bickerstaff worked with Gasol daily on a one-on-one basis while they also did film sessions together and communicated with each other far more than Fizdale did with Gasol. It’s clear that the two men have already established a strong bond and this might also explain Gasol’s successful year this past season even though the Grizzlies struggled to win games.
