Here’s what Gasol mentioned on the matter while describing a segment from his upcoming documentary “It’s all about the journey” that shows his reaction to Kobe’s death. Per Marca: “The objective of the documentary was to show the personal side and to be authentic. To be transparent with what was happening and unfortunately, this tragic accident took place and it was a very hard blow that is still being digested. We could not hide it, although for me it was hard. But Kobe had meant so much in my life that it was a way to convey those feelings in the most natural way possible. It took me a long time to sleep well, there were a lot of crying and a lot of pain.”

Pau Gasol doesn't care about NBA 75 snub

His soft touch, agility under the basket and unselfish play earned him widespread praise. But he wasn’t included among the NBA’s 75 Greatest Players, an omission that was widely considered a snub. Gasol, however, didn’t pay that much heed. “I don’t really care too much about lists,” he said. “I think, to a certain degree, they’re very subjective. I’m really happy about how I played through my NBA career and the impact that I’ve had on my teams and teammates, and that’s what I care about. Lists, at the end of the day, are to create maybe a little controversy or a little talk here and there, and that’s OK. That’s part of the sport, and that’s how it should be. So I’m not offended by any means. And if I would’ve been on the list, I wouldn’t think that I’m better than some of the many other great players that are not on the list.”
