Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol made the All-Star Game for the third time in his career, but he's changing up how'll he get to the game.

Rather than accept a team-provided, 95-minute charter flight from Memphis to New Orleans, Gasol is going to drive to the game. In a Tesla.

Now, Teslas are super awesome cars and are great for the environment. But a Tesla isn't the best car for a long road trip because it needs time to charge. A typical drive from Memphis to New Orleans would be about 6 hours. In a Tesla, that jumps to an estimated 9 hours.

Look at his drive itinerary.

Gasol will have to make stops in Pearl, Miss., and Slidell, La., to charge up before he makes it to New Orleans after nine hours.

He must really love driving.
