Manu Ginobili recalls having “no thoughts” of an NBA career when he was growing up in Argentina, a sentiment shared by his current teammate from Spain, Pau Gasol. “For me, it was like going to a different galaxy. It was like a dream far, far away,” Gasol told Yahoo Sports. “So it was something very hard to get to. Kids are getting confident. They see coming to the NBA as something that’s probable. I wouldn’t say easier, because this is a very competitive league. Everyone wants to make it. Everyone wants to be in it. But it doesn’t seem as improbable as it used to be.”
Gasol admitted he watched pieces of Bryant’s retirement ceremony but vowed to give it another look in its entirety when afforded more time. “I know it was a very special moment,” said Gasol. “I saw the tail end when I got home after the game (against the Clippers). It’s emotional. It’s exciting. I was proud that I been a part of his legacy and I helped him enlarge it.”
