After defeating the San Antonio Spurs in the first-round of the Western Conference playoffs last season, one would think Memphis Grizzlies’ Marc Gasol would want the Spurs again in this season’s playoffs. With history and confidence on their side, one would think Memphis would feel the better matchup again would be San Antonio, right?
Well maybe not.
Gasol was interviewed on ESPN, and when asked which team he thinks will come out of the West, he picked the Spurs over the West leading Oklahoma City Thunder.
Gasol points to the Spurs’ consistency, confidence, experience and effort as to why he feels San Antonio will win the West. However, Stephen A. Smith decides to open his big mouth and question Gasol’s pick.
