Did the NBA move too quickly in eliminating the center position on the All-Star ballot? At least one NBA executive believes so. "I wouldn't call it a renaissance because they don't play the position quite the same way, but the position is stocked with young quality players," he said, ticking off Andre Drummond, DeMarcus Cousins, DeAndre Jordan and Jonas Valanciunas coming up behind Joakim Noah, Dwight Howard, Brook Lopez, Al Jefferson, Roy Hibbert and Marc Gasol.

Our friends at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are once again teaming with the NBA for Hoops For St. Jude's Week, which runs through Thursday. As you probably know by now, St. Jude's treats children with cancer, sickle cell anemia and other deadly diseases, and doesn't charge the kids or their families a dime for the procedures, operations, travel, housing or food they get and use while at the hospital. St. Jude's does this through the contributions, great and small, of individuals and corporations. It costs $1.9 million per day for the hospital to do all the works it performs. This year's NBA Ambassadors for St. Jude's are Mike Conley, Pau and Marc Gasol, David Lee, Kevin Love and Greg Monroe, along with coaches Mike Brown, Rick Carlisle and Monty Williams. You can help by visiting the website and making a donation, or checking out St. Jude's Twitter and Facebook pages. It's well worth your time. NBA.com

It’s hard to play against us, especially when we’re both going on both ends and we’re both down there. My game has matured. I play the right way. I’ve developed. Nothing clicked, I just matured as a player – getting better and helping my teammates.” RealGM

He effortlessly threw down a number of dunks throughout the practice. Gasol said he has experienced nothing but positive reactions from the knee after several workouts. “It’s pain-free,” Gasol said about his knee. “How the knee reacts the day after, you don’t see swelling. You see nothing bad happening. That encourages you to do more and more.” Memphis Commercial Appeal

Gasol said the injury tested his patience more than anything. “It’s been hard for me to be patient and stay in the day-to-day. Sometimes when you look down the road and you still have six weeks to go, you get a little anxious and you want to do more and more and more,” Gasol said. “The knee felt fine. It feels great actually. We never did anything where I said ‘Well, it hurts.’ So the timing has been really good.” Memphis Commercial Appeal
