He’ll be alright.” Still, Gasol now goes out of his way to put his arm around young big men JaMychal Green, Jarell Martin and Deyonta Davis.

I don’t try to make them look bad, I don’t try to embarrass them,” Gasol said. “I want them to be a better player.”
Within weeks of making the comparison, Fizdale would ask a once-elite defensive team to abandon its style, shift a plodding offense to a more modern approach, and move former All-Star Zach Randolph to the bench.
