So much for respecting your elders.

Marc Gasol is one of the best all around players in the NBA, a surefire MVP candidate for the 24-9 Memphis Grizzlies, and a well respected veteran of the game.

Jusuf Nurkic is a solid (albeit unknown) rookie, with 22 games under his belt for the 14-20 Denver Nuggets, averaging 6.1 points, five rebounds and a block per game in about 13 minutes a night.

But if you think the 20-year-old Nurkic is impressed, starstruck or intimidated by Gasol, think again.
