Pau Gasol had 21 points and 10 rebounds and the short-handed Spurs beat the Chicago Bulls 133-94, setting a season-high in points despite missing six players. “I just loved it, I liked it a lot,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said playfully when asked about his young talent. “We had a lot of guys that played well tonight. Real big different overall attitude as far as aggressiveness and moving the basketball and communicating and not taking anything for granted like we did the game before.”
“I mean, to me it’s gotten out of control,” Gasol said. “The situation, the laws, the gun regulations, they need to be addressed. It’s anywhere — concerts, schools, churches, kids. I mean, it’s devastating. But it’s a reality that needs to be addressed. I’m unaware of how or the powers behind the gun laws and gun organizations in this country, but you need to protect the innocent. It’s happened down the road. It could have happened to any of us. It could happen in the supermarket next time. It could happen anywhere. It’s gotten to a point that it’s really worrisome. Really worrisome.”
Gasol referenced last month’s shooting in Las Vegas, in which a gunman killed 58 people and injured hundreds more at a country music concert. “You think about the guy in Vegas that owns up to 20 guns,” Gasol said. “He has an arsenal. A citizen? Why does a citizen need an arsenal? It’s one thing to defend yourself and the right to own a weapon to defend your home. But 20 shotguns? Automatic guns? It’s outrageous.”
Spurs center Pau Gasol took to social media to express his concern for the victims of Tuesday’s terrorist attack in New York City. Eight people were killed and 11, including two children, were injured after a truck was driven into a cycleway in lower Manhattan hear the site of the 9/11 memorial. The suspect has been identified as Sayfullo Saipov, a 29-year-old Uzbek national who entered the United States in 2010. “My thoughts and prayers to the victims & families of the #Manhattan attack,” Gasol wrote via Twitter. “Stay safe and strong. Violence will never win. #PrayforManhattan.
