As Mark Jackson used to say: great players believe.
Jerry West once said that the word superstar [great] is freely used nowadays but intimated that it should be reserved for a select few like Russell, Chamberlain, Abdul-Jabbar, Johnson, Bird, Jordan, Bryant et all.
Gasol is an excellent all around player, highly respected by his peers and deserves the success he achieved BUT for Jackson speaking in generalities placing him in rarefied company is a disservice.
