Marc and Pau Gasol are staying home in Spain during the NBA lockout.
@FCBarcelona_cat officially announce that Marc and Pau Gasol will practice with the team during lockout. Marc starts today, Pau on Thursday
Nice. Barcelona is the club both played for prior to coming to the NBA, and it is one of the elite clubs in all of Europe. The facilities and coaches are first rate. Also, with both there they can work out against another quality NBA big man and sharpen their games.
The news should make Lakers and Grizzlies fans happy, we know the Gasols will not be going Shawn Kemp after the lockout.
