I am a big fan of the science behind sports.  Therefore, it should not be a big surprise that the Sports Science pieces on ESPN interest me a great deal.  Here is another very interesting piece from Sports Science on Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies.  He was recently named the Defensive Player of the Year in the NBA.  At 7’1, this piece shows how he can defend smaller and faster players by utilizing his smarts instead of his reaction speed.  Enjoy!
