During his appearance on the show Green Room, Danny Green talked about his first season with the Toronto Raptors, winning an NBA championship but also the celebration that came immediately afterward. The championship parade in Toronto was celebrated in front of 2 million people who came from different parts of Canada.

During those championship parades, fans have a chance to see their favorite players in a completely different environment. A lot of players are not afraid to show themselves in a bit different light and Green was asked who were the players that partied the hardest on the parade and he said it was without a doubt, Marc Gasol.

The younger brother of Pau finally won a championship after spending over 10 years in the league and he couldn't hold back his excitement during the parade. Among many other things Marc chugged an entire bottle of wine and Green said Marc even bit him at some point of the parade.

"Marc Gasol and Kyle Lowry have been in the league for over 10 years and they never got a chance to win it and Marc has seen his brother do it a bunch of times. He probably celebrated the most on the float I think. People have seen the highlights and it was fun. I didn't see all that but I have seen him at the end and when we talk about speeches this is why some people did get up to speak and some people didn't, and that is why some people were there to help other people speak. Marc was really drunk and the real Memphis came out in Marc when he started drinking and was dancing a little bit. I think he even bit me too."
