HoopsHype Marc Gasol rumors

September 11, 2013 Updates

"Coach Joerger has been there for six years," Gasol told ESPN.com on Wednesday. "He knows us pretty well. He knows how we play. He knows us personally, how we like to play basketball. He, of course, wants to push the tempo, which has been a problem for us, getting up and down the floor to score easy buckets. Because when you always go inside, everybody collapses on you in the paint and it's hard to operate down there. He's going to push the tempo and have a lot of plays from his pocket that he's told me [about]. And I'm excited about next season." ESPN.com

Nobody has played more summer ball in the current century than new Pacers forward Luis Scola. With 12 international competitions and just one year off since 2000, the Argentinian forward beats the Gasol brothers and Mavs guard Jose Manuel Calderon, who have taken part in 11 FIBA tournaments each, as the NBA player most committed to a National Team.

Any NBA player who is on a team’s roster during any game in Memphis has to pay a flat tax bill of $2,500 for that game. (The same goes for NHL players who pop into Nashville to face the Predators.) The tax applies to a maximum of three games, so that no player pays more than $7,500 per calendar year, Klempner says. The flat rates apply to each player, regardless of his individual income level, and they also apply to Memphis players; Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, and Tony Wroten all wrote $7,500 checks to the state of Tennessee for last season.

Marc Gasol: "The easy thing would be to say 'No' [to the Eurobasket] and going on vacation, but I want to be calm and think about the decision. But the truth is that you always want to compete with your teammates and even though we have won two European Championships in a row and played three straight Finals, you always want more. I have good reasons to say yes and no." Terra.es

In what will could be his last public appearance here this offseason before traveling to his native Spain, Pau Gasol will host a pep rally Monday at the Boys & Girls Club in downtown Los Angeles to make the beginning of his self-named foundation. As part of his initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle, Gasol and his brother, Marc, of the Memphis Grizzlies will coach two different teams in what’s called a “The Healthy Competition 2013″ running from June 10 through Aug. 2. Using gifted Nike Fuelbands (retailed at $149) to track the teams’ progress, either Pau or Marc will have to shave their beard if their respective team loses. Los Angeles Daily News
