Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol arrived at the NBA All-Star Game in New Olreans in style.

Instead of taking a short flight down to New Orleans, Gasol decided to drive his Tesla.

Gasol posted a picture as he prepared for the 400-mile journey. Teslas must be roomy if Gasol, who is 7-foot-1, is comfortable making the long trip in one.

Headed to New Orleans, no gas needed. 🔋🔋🔌🔌

Chris Herrington of Memphis Commercial Appeal also reported the journey.

Have confirmation that Marc Gasol is indeed driving himself to New Orleans today. Hope he takes detour time to hit the tamale trail.

@neo_real_ist Person who confirmed for me added “hope he’s able to find some charging stations.”

Gasol hasn’t yet posted any updates on social media about arriving in New Orleans, so hopefully, his Tesla didn’t run out of a charge before he got there.
