Tennessean "Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are proving to be a tough tag team. They almost seem to be taking turns scoring, whether it’s Randolph with his layups and putbacks or Gasol with his hooks and jumpers.

Grizzly Bear Blues "It's hard to predict Wednesday's Grizzlies-Suns contest. Memphis is by far the better team, but Phoenix is bound to end their losing streak (now at 7) eventually and possibly in a revenge game at home. After all, they fell to the Grizz in overtime last time. Despite Memphis coming off of a..." December 12
Memphis Commercial Appeal "Marc Gasol received an inbounds pass near the foul line as time expired on the Grizzlies' final scrimmage, and he surveyed the scene. The 7-foot, versatile center could have passed to a cutting Jerryd Bayless. But Gasol looked him off. Gasol could have set up Rudy Gay or Mike Conley, but he..." October 06
Memphis Commercial Appeal "Marc Gasol scored five points and had two rebounds. He looked rusty, honestly, after missing some time with a bum shoulder. A reporter immediately asked him how he was feeling. "Great," he said, with a big smile. "Because we won." You can take the boy out of the Grindhouse, but you can't..." July 30
Memphis Commercial Appeal "When you're restless on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles -- as was the case with me following Game 4 - a billion things run through your mind.

Memphis Commercial Appeal "The Grizzlies began arguably their most emphatic display of defense this season by forcing a simple traveling violation. What followed almost seemed criminal.

Memphis Commercial Appeal "The Grizzlies stopped short of calling their precious two practice days a mini training camp earlier this week. But they covered a lot of ground — figuratively and literally. The team ran what seemed like miles for conditioning purposes the first day. The second day was geared toward sharpening..." March 01
Memphis Commercial Appeal "Do the math: Being selected to an NBA All-Star team is a lofty accomplishment. Only two dozen players each year make the rosters. Given the nearly 400 players that play in the league, it's only natural that it could lead to a loftier self-evaluation of a player's abilities or worth. Which, in..." February 27

Memphis Commercial Appeal "When the Grizzlies traded Pau Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers for salary-cap relief, draft picks and his once chubby and not highly regarded little brother, the deal was considered a joke.

Memphis Commercial Appeal "Mike Conley flew down the court for the layup and everyone rose and cheered, but the best part of the play might have been what was happening clear back at the other end.
