Grizzlies Mayo and Gasol Make NBA All-Star Weekend

Whether or not Zach Randolph gets picked as a reserve for the upcoming NBA All-Star game, the Grizzlies will be well represented in Dallas for All-Star Weekend..

The NBA announced O.J. Mayo and Marc Gasol will play in the T-Mobile Rookie All-Star challenge for the second year in a row..

This time they'll be on the NBA Sophomore Squad.

They are the only pair of teammates picked for the Sophomore team.

Mayo leads ALL Western Conference second year players in scoring at 18.1 points per game..

He also averages almost 4-rebounds and more than 3-assists per game.

Only LeBron James has put up those type averages in both his first 2-seasons.

Grizz Center Marc Gasol is posting career highs in scoring, rebounding, Field Goal percentage, assists, Blocks and Steals..

Gasol is second in the League in Shooting at 60.4%, and 16th on the Boards right at 10 per game.

Those numbers, including 19-double-doubles so far this season, have Gasol as one of the leading candidates for the NBA's Most Improved Player Award.
