Tonight, the Los Angeles Lakers will host the Memphis Grizzlies, which means the Gasol-brothers will have another battle on the court.   In 2008, the Lakers traded Marc Gasol in a deal to acquire Pau Gasol, and there has been a “rivalry” between the franchises ever since.  Every time the Lakers and Grizzlies square off, the entire world looks forward to the match-up between the brothers.  However, Coach Phil Jackson believes Marc Gasol has the advantage over his brother.   Jackson thinks the younger Gasol is more powerful and stronger in the paint; Phil Jackson could be telling the truth, or it could be another scheme to motivate Pau Gasol.
