NBA Playoff time! Which means I am turning on
my (OK, OK, Michelle, it’s not mine) Slingbox to watch some NBA action. Just no – the Lakers are playing the Jazz and up to this point are really killing them.
During halftime, Pau Gasol was asked about his five favorite international players. He wanted to mention his brother of course, but no, he’s not an all-time favorite of Pau.
In case you haven’t heard of this Fave 5 thing, it’s a T-Mobile commercial campaign in with Charles Barkley, Dwyane Wade and some special guests such as Dwight Howard and Yao Ming. Watch them: They’re hilarious!
Here’s Pau Gasol’s fave five:
5. Arvydas Sabonis
4. Toni Kukoc
3. Drazen Petrovic
2. Dirk Nowitzki
1. Fernando Martin
Pau explains that Fernando was the first Spanish NBA guy and died in a car accident, which makes him really special. I wonder if anybody will ever mention Pau one day — I guess if he wins the NBA championship he might be mentioned.
