Greatest Grizz of All Time (on paper) and very deserving of having his Jersey hanging in the rafters.    Best of luck to him.

Marc came to Memphis under a cloud of suspicion as the team traded their best player ever, his brother Pau, to acquire his rights (2nd pick of the Lakers). They signed him to a lottery sized contract to boot. 

He has become the best player to don the Grizzlies uniform. He will be missed and hopefully he will return one day to retire a Grizz.

Love Gasol. Like ZBo, he will always get love from Memphis fans, and could live like a king here if he decides not to sell his house 😅

It's all coming back into itself, or whatever the saying is;

June 2007 - Wallace hired, Conley drafted
Feb 2008 - Marc traded for
July 2009 - Zbo traded for
July 2010 - Tony signed
July 2017 - Tony let go
July 2017 - Zbo let go
Feb 2019 - Marc traded away
June 2019 - Wallace ? Conley ?

If we truly needed to trade Gasol, i'm keeping him anyways 100 times over this garbage. We will regret this.

Best Grizzlies player is a bit of a mouthful, but among the top ones for sure. Was here for a lot of great moments.

I couldn't have said it better.  He often frustrated the hell out of me, but he was one of the "core four" who gave us the best years we ever knew as a franchise.   I hope the Raptors make the finals.

This. 

Marc is not his usual self, and he is not willing to accept that. He would cost us too much for his production from now on. He will be a great backup there, and will contribute for sure to make Raptors contenders this year (he will be their 4th or 5th option for them, its way better suited for him)
