What if he is walking to the 41st year of his age? Inside the Pau Gasol (6/7/1980) The flame is still “burning” and the love for basketball is a given. That brought him back to Europe and more specifically to his beloved Barcelona, in which he became a basketball man before moving to NBA in the summer of 2001, on behalf of Grizzlies, having managed to play in the first season of the newly formed – then – Euroleague.
The intense “flirtation” of the two sides had started in the summer, as revealed by Eurohoops and just before the end of this winter the great deal is over!
At the age of 21, the Spanish center / forward had left Catalonia for Memphis Bears and from there on began his dream “journey” in the NBA, during which he charted a unique and indelible course! His end undoubtedly finds him as one of the top European players of all time, having conquered two champion rings back to back (2009-10) with them Los Angeles Lakers as “Dioskouros” of his good friend… the undefeated Coby Bryant.
Eurohoops on the occasion of the great deal “Pau Gasol – Barcelona” which marked his return to Europe after 20 years reminds you of his last season with “Blaugrana” before leaving for the US and the NBA!
