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 take the Grindhouse out of the boy, can you?
Spain opened the Olympic tournament with a workmanlike 97-81 win over China Sunday.
So Gasol was happy. Of course he was. This is a man who puts team above all else, whether that team is the Lausanne Lynx or the Memphis Grizzlies or the Spanish Olympic team.
“It was a good win,” he said, because what other kind is there? “My shoulder? It feels fine.”
