You’re beginning your 19th season in the NBA. You never know if it will be the last one, but you’ll turn 40 in 2020. For the first time, your future seems somewhat uncertain. Do you have more doubts than other times? Will it be your last year? Pau Gasol: “I am not worried about the future. I understand that my career is about to end.
It is something that I have been assimilating these years. I am sure that my career as a basketball player will end in a little while. It won’t be much more, as much as I love playing. There is uncertainty about what will happen after, but I have been training to have different options, objectives and responsibilities. Activity will never be missing. I would like to have space to work with an organisation, a team or an organisation within the sport. I will also look for flexibility to be with my family. For now, I want to continue enjoying this stage as a player, although I know that the chapter, or the book, will end. Then another chapter will begin and we will continue writing good pages.”
