Rafael Nadal Rumors

Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal wore a purple shirt with yellow headband and wristbands throughout the year-end ATP World Tour Finals event in London, but countryman Pau Gasol said it wasn’t any sort of Lakers tribute as far as he knows. Of greater concern, obviously, to Gasol: Pau has averaged just 14.3 points per game in L.A.’s four-game skid after averaging 22.1 points in the season’s first 15 games.
