Basic Info.

Pau Gasol

Our reasoning for choosing Pau Gasol is primarily, because he is an NBA player. And while authors and poets do interest us, choosing someone who is a professional athlete is more our “style". If you were to compare him to someone like Ryan or Sierra (us) he would look like a complete GIANT. Ryan only stands 6’ft while Pau Gasol is a legit one foot taller than him. Also, Ryan usually has about 10 dollars in his pocket while Pau Gasol makes 19.29 million a year! 10 dollars to him would be equivalent to .25 cents to us. If even… One thing Gasol and Ryan do have in common is their ability to make awful faces while playing basketball.

Why we chose him:

- Pau first sport was rugby then started playing basketball.- He was never in to playing football or soccer as a kid.-Enjoys BBQ Pizza and In n' Out burgers. -He is a 2 time NBA All-Star. -Gasol is considered one of the Top 10 Lakers of All Time, next to Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and Shaquille O'Neal. - Gasol can speak three languages; Spanish, English, and Catalan.-Pau sponsored a kids program in Memphis called “Pau’s Amigos.”-Pau released his Spanish-language autobiography—Gasol by Gasol in 2005.
