“Being the next Gasols is impossible,” Juancho added. “Just like being the next Juan Carlos Navarro is impossible. And [the Gasols] are the two best players at FIBA EuroBasket. Pau is 37-year-old and still one of the best players in Europe. He’s like a big teacher or a big brother to all of us. It’s impossible to be like Gasol.”

There is one key difference with the two pairs of brothers. The Gasols are Barcelona’s finest. But Guillermo Gustavo Willy and Juan Alberto Juancho are Madridistas. The rivalry is intense, albeit only when the Real Madrid and FC Barcelona soccer teams meet each other. “For sure! My brother and I are Madrid fans, Real Madrid fans, and Gasol brothers – they are FC Barcelona fans. The soccer teams played a match two or three weeks ago in Madrid, the Spanish Supercup, and Madrid beat Barcelona easily. So after the game, my brother and I were crazy, like, yelling ‘Hala, Madrid!’ and ‘Let’s go, Madrid!’ The Gasol brothers were mad at us. But it is what it is,” said Willy smiling, as he thought back to the 5-1 on aggregate Real win.

Against Romania, Pau Gasol was rested, but the bottom line for Spain was the same. The defending Eurobasket champs got an impressive win. Every player of Spain did his job when he was on the court, however, Juancho Hergnangomez was more than impressive with a double-double (20 p., 11 r.), proving that the next generation of the Spanish national team is ready to continue the team’s tradition of dominance.
Storyline: Eurobasket
Our very own Juancho Hernangomez is suited up to compete in the European league, Eurobasket, with his home country of Spain. Juancho gets to share this moment with his brother Guillermo “Willy” Hernangomez of the New York Knicks who will also play for the Spanish national team. Juancho and Willy are very close, and today Juancho shared a special note from his brother as they get ready to head into competition together.
“I’m proud that we are compared with the Gasols,” Hernangomez said to Marca. “It’s not usual and I don’t think it’s going to happen again. It’s going to be very difficult to match or do something close to what they have done. My brother and I are starting on our road. It’s my brother’s first year here with the national team and, well, we want to work hard. Give everything to Spain. So that in the future, when they talk about brothers in the national team, they will remember us as well.”
