Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies seems to have become much more aware over the past year and a half.
There was a time where Marc was genuinely surprised at how much Memphis Grizzlies fans were nervous about the possibility of Gasol leaving in free agency. As time has gone on, and Marc suffered his major foot injury, his social media posts have become more centered around his recovery. He came back, apparently better than ever...
And then a cloudy report of a foot injury turned Grizz Nation over, and Gasol is very understanding of this fact.
And then once the report was made by Ron Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal of the bone bruise that is unrelated to his broken bone and that he should be ready for opening night next week?
Gasol has embraced the role that he plays in Memphis now. He is the cornerstone of this Grizzlies team, and is a central figure in the Memphis community. A little lighthearted humor can alleviate that tension, and social media is a good medium for that.
And besides, any time you can use a “Juicy” GIF, you have to.
