Their fates and their accomplishments, in their native land at least, will forever be intertwined. “There is definitely something special,” Gasol told ESPN.com. “But I don’t know if it’s coincidence, or if it’s timing. Our generation, of the 1980s, it is a mix of special players and that’s why we were so successful early on and that’s why there are still a few of us left playing at a high level.”
Storyline: Eurobasket
Gasol and Reyes were both just 23 when these two Goliaths last squared off for the European title, 12 years ago, with a 36-point blast from the now-Chicago Bulls forward not enough to deny their Baltic rivals a 93-84 victory in the final in Stockholm. “That team was very talented,” Gasol recalls. “They escaped from us. And they beat us soundly.” Fernandez, later to have a stint in the NBA with Portland before returning to Real Madrid, had yet to break through. But other stars-in-the-making announced themselves to the world. Jose Calderon. Juan Carlos Navarro. Jorge Garbajosa. “La Generacion de Oro.” The Golden Kids.
Spain’s guards didn’t adjust by looking for Pau and Marc Gasol in the post enough, and then compounded that by missing all but two of their 22 attempts from beyond the 3-point arc. “Everyone thought we had won this before it started, but we didn’t prepare well for the game and were trying to play catchup the entire way,” Spain guard Juan Carlos Navarro said. “They prepared better than we did. We relied on doing what we always do, defend and get out on the break, but our shots didn’t fall, and they played with a lot of poise.”
