NBA ROLE: (VETERAN) TWO-WAY STAR

 

Marc Gasol has been a top flight pivot in the NBA for quite some time; fully evolved into a Top DOG during the 2014-15 season, in which he started opposite his brother, Pau, in the All-Star game; one of the game's top passing pivots – Marc’s excellent court vision is elite for his position; great defender: beats his man to the spot, stays patient and reaches out for swats at the perfect time; ‘catch & spin’ move is one of Marc’s go-to’s (same for Pau!) – catches guys off guard w/ his speed, finishes w/ a soft touch; Gasol gets it going fast in the PnR; such a tricky shot faker* – if he gets ya, Marc either chooses to drive the lane or cash his patented set shot; great range, jumper (now) extends to downtown; a former DPOY & low post star, Marc remains one of the game’s top bigs; won 1st title w/ Raps in 2019! – highly skilled lineup stabilizer for Nick Nurse

 

*looks like he’s about to pass but gotta pick your poison since Marc can make elbow Js AND dish to teammates
