Marc Gasol Credits Weight Loss for Career Year

The resulting weight loss — (Marc) Gasol would not put a number on it — has equipped him to handle a heavier scoring load, which has helped the Grizzlies surge to a league-best 15-2 start and has made Gasol an early candidate for the Most Valuable Player award.

“Losing the weight makes you feel so comfortable; it makes you feel like you can push the whole time,” Gasol said. “You don’t have to take the co-pilot seat and let somebody else take over. You can be on the go most of the game.”

Gasol, the 2012-13 N.B.A. defensive player of the year, is shooting more, getting to the free-throw line more and scoring more — averaging 20.1 points per game, more than 6 above his career average — and he has contributed in myriad ways.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
