His desire to elevate the Grizzlies is off the charts with training camp less than a month away and three consecutive losing seasons in the rearview mirror. ‘I want to be an All-Star. Everything I do now is trying to help me get to that point,’ Gay said. ‘If I’m at the top of my game and recognized as an All-Star, it’ll mean we’re winning.”‘
