In 2012 Marc Gasol properly joined older brother Pau in the limelight. A year later and Marc is the "Gasol" people are referring to when mentioning the surname. Toiling away for the Memphis Grizzlies, Gasol was honoured by being named NBA Defensive Player of the Year, whilst also showing offensive prowess, averaging a career-best 15.4 points-a-night to get Memphis into the post-season, where they were brought to a halt at the Western Conference finals by the San Antonio Spurs. Capped his year off by winning bronze with Spain at EuroBasket with team-best figures of 13.9 points and 7.8 rebounds a night.
