Default Pau Gasol will play for Spain at Euro Championship

Quote:
ALICANTE, Spain (AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol will play for Spain in September in the European Basketball Championship.

Gasol said Friday that it was an easy decision after winning the NBA finals.

"The season went really well for me and now I want to defend our country," Gasol said. "We're really hopeful about the team we have, but we can't go there with a mentality that we'll be playing the final just because we're really good."

World champion Spain, upset by Russia in the European final at Madrid in 2007, is one of the favorites going to Poland after a silver-medal performance in Olympics.

Anybody else wish he would rest up and not play? this would mean playing back to back years after the NBA season...hope he takes it easy. I doubt the comp will be that strong against teams in the group games where he can coast through.

I hope there isn't any USA ball this year.

Kobe needs his rest. Hopefully one of these days if Bynum fully comes into his own, he can play and help our country win a gold.

I would love for him to get rest.. but its not a new thing that Pau is aiding his National Team... because hes been doing it, since he entered the NBA.

Pau does not seem like a very injury-prone player. If he was injury-prone, I would be slightly worried, but he can play extended minutes and still be fine physically. I don't mind him playing for Spain but just keep your fingers crossed!

He'll be fine. He's had June, July, and August to rest up and he probably won't do much during training camp.

Well at least GB will have Ben Gordon and maybe Loul Deng if he is healthly? better options than in the past.

I wish he would take a longer break to. Focus on the weight room, training and getting healthy. I think it does take a toll on a person to play year round. Anyone who has been a competitive athlete knows that some time off is healthy for the mind, body and competitive spirit.

It's not like he isn't taking a break. He got almost 3 months or rest before the tourney starts. I don't think some of you are reading the article.
