Pau Gasol Wants to Play in Spain Again Someday

Los Angeles Lakers star forward Pau Gasol — whose future is very much up in the air — says that when his NBA career winds down, he’d like to play for FC Barcelona again before he hangs up his sneakers for good. Per El Mundo (via EOB): “I don’t know when, but if one day I could return to FIBA basketball, I’d like to do it with Barcelona as long as I can play at a high level and being central to the team.”

    Makes sense, they play less games, less of a load on the body, playing there could extend his career. However, Pau is a quality player due to his skills and his basketball iq, and they don’t deteriorate over time to the same extent as a player who relies on athleticism.

    Bet he wanted to be there a little bit after D’Antoni came in and benched him like he knew what he was doing.

    so agree to this. and correct me if I’m wrong, NBA is much more physical than any other basketball organizations, so it would be good for him too.
