Adria Gasol Rumors
We’d like to personally thank UCLA freshman basketball player Adria Gasol — the younger brother of NBA players Pau and Marc — for proving that some of the athletes we bash on the internet pay close attention to what we say. On a Saturday Reddit post concerning a high school hoops picture of Marc, one of the commenters brought up Adria, of whom he heard “he’s not very good at basketball.” The first person to respond to the comment? None other than Adria himself. “I have to get more athletic, but it’s pretty hard to do when my body is still in the process of growing,” he responded under the account name “Airdria.” “It sucks, and I probably won’t get any playing time this year, but I’ll still fight and work to become the best I can be.”
Adria Gasol, a 6-10 forward who played his first two years of high school basketball at Lausanne High School in Memphis, will join the UCLA program as a walk-on according to multiple reports. His older brothers Pau and Marc were two of the key figures on Spain’s silver medal-winning team at the London Olympics, and are two of the better big men in the NBA.
