Nick Nurse has been "nursing" Gasol (sorry) into the lineup by not starting him as he works into the Raptors schemes.

"I gave it my all (in Memphis)", Gasol states.

Gasol said long-time Raptor Jose Calderon, a close friend from their many years together toiling for Spain, offered him the place he still has in Toronto, but Gasol indicated that might not have been a serious offer, since it's being renovated.

Marc Gasol will be making his debut with the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night against the New York Knicks, and a deep postseason run with his new club is breathing new life into the 34-year-old center. "The amount of energy that you feel around the city is great".

Apple iPhone sales fall in China

Ajax vs Real Madrid: how and where to watch
As well as the disallowed goal, Tadic hit a post and Ajax were full value for their equaliser scored by Hakim Ziyech. If you make small errors, a team like Real Madrid are merciless and will punish you for that.

New Game Plus coming to Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Considering AC3 originally released on Wii U, bringing this new, remastered version just seemed somewhat logical to begin with. You need to be logged in to see it, but on the Ubisoft Club website, the game is clearly listed as coming to the Switch.

VanVleet is averaging 10.5 points and 4.6 assists in 26.8 minutes per game this season, holding down a key role in Toronto's rotation as the team continues to manage Kyle Lowry's recurring back troubles. "That's what you want from an organization that you're playing for".

Gasol has spent his entire National Basketball Association career with the Grizzlies. He was just 16 when his brother Pau was drafted by the Grizzlies in 2001, and the entire Gasol family made the move from Barcelona to the southern USA city. He attended tiny Memphis private high school Lausanne Collegiate School.

This time around, he will be part of a team that's expected to make the NBA Finals.

Marc worked his way into a franchise player, earning three all-star nominations and winning the NBA's defensive player of the year award in 2013.

Being traded might have been a tough adjustment earlier in his career, Gasol said, but it sounds like he was ready to make this move.
