Sean Lee = Memphis Grizzlies Center, Marc Gasol
Finding a comparison for Cowboys’ linebacker Sean Lee took me a while.
I couldn’t think of an All-Star caliber NBA player, under-rated by general fans.
Then it hit me, Marc Gasol!
Gasol is a three-time All-Star who’s had his career slowed by injuries, similar to Lee’s two Pro Bowls and trouble staying healthy.
While neither is the most athletically gifted, they both are incredibly intelligent.
This allows them to dominate at their respective positions, which aren’t as valued as in the past.
Finally, Lee and Gasol don’t have the biggest personalities and haven’t received as much media coverage as their teammates.
Lee plays for a team full of outgoing stars, while Gasol has given up most of the spotlight to more flashy teammates.
