Spain's NBA player Pau Gasol poses during a news conference to present his biography in Madrid May 29, 2006.
To show that we are fair and balanced to European hoopsters, I bring you news of Pau Gasol's autobiography aptly titled: Gasol por Pau Gasol: El partido de mi vida.
Which loosely translated it means:
Gasol for Pau Gasol: The part of my life... that I spend watching the NBA playoffs after getting swept for the third consecutive season in a row.
I'm hoping the book covers the traumatic experience of changing from Euro Metrosexual to outdoor woodsman over the summer of '05, being called honkey every day in practice with Bonzi Wells and comparisons between Memphis groupies and women in prison movies on Skin-emax (I'm talking about the typical ugly she-man that runs the prison not the "You look like you need a backrub" portions of the movie).
You can thank me later for this information. Right now I have to leave work and camp out at Borders to get a 1st edition copy.
Since I have nothing else to add here (I did a 20 minute search on Amazon and Google and couldn't find the book), here's a link showing Pau Gasol's EA motion capture session. (EA Sports)
