What do you think the best part of being an NBA player is? The money? The fame? The opportunity to get to play the game you love on a global stage? Some might like all the free shoes and equipment. Marc Gasol might agree with the latter, as tonight against the Kings, he decided to celebrate by ripping up his jersey mid-game:
At the NBA Store, a Marc Gasol replica jersey will run you about $70.00, but i’m guessing they just handed him another one without docking his paycheck.
On the other hand, it’s very possible Marc just didn’t know his own strength. It ain’t easy being big.
