Everything is ready for Pau Gasol’s big day. Los Angeles is experiencing with emotion the retirement of the jersey of one of its great legends, the Spaniard who formed a magical duo with Kobe Bryant to give two rings to the most glorious franchise in the NBA, and proof of this is the spectacular preparation for the court facing the great tribute.
In the absence of hours, the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles -the mythical field formerly known by the name of Staples Center- has appeared covered in shirts with the number ’16’the one used by the oldest Gasol during his time there, which will never be used by any player in the history of the Los Angeles team.
Thus, each of the attendees will have a special memory of the great night in which their team will honor Pau Gasol, one of the men most important events in its history both inside and outside the parquet. And it is that Catalan has transcended in the United States, and especially in Los Angeles, due to his social commitment beyond the game.
The celebration of the tribute will take place during the break of the duel between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Memphis Grizzlies (at 4:00 in the morning from Tuesday to Wednesday), the team with which Pau Gasol took his first steps in the best league in the world. .
