Marc Gasol imitates Conor McGregor's 'billionaire walk' after Memphis win

Marc Gasol pulled Memphis home with a stunning late-game three pointer - and boy, did he want the world to know.

The Grizzlies centre pulled a rabbit out of his hat in the closing seconds, landing a stunning three-pointer to end the Clippers' hopes of coming out with a win.

In the heat of the moment, Gasol strutted towards the middle of the court, arms flailing in celebration in a clear homage to UFC star's Conor McGregor's famous victory "billionaire's walk" - which he originally appropriated from WWE's Vince McMahon.

"Did I just see Marc Gasol do the Conor McGregor walk?" commentators called from the box.
"Please don't do that again," Mike Breen replied as Gasol's strut was replayed.

Either way, Gasol pulling a McGregor pulling a McMahon is a beautiful thing.

The Grizzlies beat the Clippers 111-107 to move to 6-5, handing Los Angeles just its second loss in 2016-17. Gasol finished with 26 points (including 4-for-5 shooting on 3s), six rebounds and six assists. He now has made 16 3-pointers on the season compared to just 12 in the rest of his career combined.
