The first time Pau Gasol met Kendall Marshall they looked very different

Jan 21, 2014, 7:19 PM EDT

It was the 2003 All-Star Game in Atlanta and rookie Pau Gasol was in town as part of the Rookie/Sophomore game, when he took a moment to take a picture with a young player….

Kendall Marshall. The guy now feeding him passes in the post with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Great tweet by Gasol.

    What I want to know is why Pau kept a random picture of him with a 12 year old at All Star Weekend.

    The logical answer is that Kendall pulled out this picture and gave it to him. However, we are talking about a guy that sits in on surgeries. Creepier things have happened.

      Marshall posted it to Instagram first.

      “However, we are talking about a guy that sits in on surgeries.”

      …It’s been well publicized that Gasol strongly considered attending medical school before opting to play professional basketball instead.

      So he sits in on surgeries because he’s interested in surgery…which isn’t creepy at all. All doctors as part of their training have to spend at least some time in the OR.

      I’m not even a Lakers fan, and I know that.

        Very true and, don’t forget, both of his parents are doctors in Spain too.
