So naturally, I wanted to put that theory to the test. Is that, in fact, the generally agreed upon totem pole these days? It doesn't appear to be the case.

Miller offers an immediate upgrade. “And it’s great to add another NBA champion that’s for sure,” center Marc Gasol said. “Mike another voice, veteran voice in the locker room, it really does help. Now we have three NBA champions that can teach all the little things that it takes to get there.” Washington Post

The team is led at the top of the rotation by Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and Mike Conley, while veteran forward Tony Allen serves as one of the lead dogs in the locker room. But for the team to take the next step, Joerger believes the growth will need to come from the team’s younger role players. “For us to grow from within Jerryd Bayless needs to have a nice season for us,” Joerger says. “Quincy Pondexter needs to have a nice season for us. Those guys need to make shots from the perimeter and for that to happen they’re going to have to be on the floor and be consistent.” HoopsWorld

During Spain’s 90-60 blowout win over Serbia, Gasol hit teammate Sergio Llull with this incredible full-court pass, which Llull caught for an easy layup. He wows in the NBA with his passing, which is rare for a player his size, but his dominance over other players is even more pronounced in EuroBasket. Just look at the degree of difficulty of this pass: For The Win
