Xavi Pascual Rumors

To most basketball fans this is a picture of Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle posing with his opposite number for tonight’s game, Barcelona’s head coach Xavi Pascual. But NBA.com have mistaken Pascual, who has led Barcelona to the Euroleague title in 2010 as well as a Final Four appearance in 2012 as a fan posing with the 2011 NBA title winning coach. From NBA.com: “Rick Carlisle of the Dallas Mavericks poses for a portrait with a fan during practice at Palau Blaugrana during NBA Europe Live 2012 on October 8, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.”
