The goodbye to the professional sport of the best Spanish basketball player in all history is not only being filled with public thanks on this side of the pond, but the country that invented basketball is also raving about it.

As a two-time NBA champion, six-time All-Star, three-time Olympic gold and world champion, Pau inspired countless fans with his incredible skill. and passion for basketball, “the statement reviewed.
The appreciation of the NBA boss did not stop there, as he also pointed to his role as a league ambassador and philanthropist. “He stood out for his tireless work to help his native country, Spain, and other communities around the world, which is something that he continues to have as a priority. We congratulate Pau for an impressive career and we thank him for his work as an NBA ambassador.” Silver’s statement was ending. Now, with Gasol’s future far off the beaten track, the retirement of his number is expected at the Staples Center (Lakers pavilion) and, if all goes as it should, his inclusion in the Hall of Fame.
