It's satire. It's a joke. It's not real.

Like all satire, it has a heavy dose of truth in it. It's pathetic how little many modern players know about the history of the league.

Anyway, Pau Gasol probably knows quite a lot about FIBA basketball from the '80s and early '90s. I'm sure he grew up watching the likes of Petrovic or Oscar rather than any of the NBA legends from that time.

So satire or not, it's obvious every player has a cultural background. And rightly so.

Apart from that, if it were not for the Internet, there wouldn't be such a load of "educated" fans pontificating about some bright past that meant absolutely nothing for them. Sports are an emotional territory, and I'll take first hand opinions and emotions any day of the week.

NBA players have more free time than you and I could ever imagine. I mean, when a team drafts you or trades for you, you'd think you could read up a bit on them. This is obviously not directed at Pau specifically, but there's been plenty of boneheaded comments by players who are blissfully unaware of anything that happened more than 10 years ago.

Then again, in a world where Kobe Bryant has read one single book in 10 years, maybe I expect too much from professional athletes. It's so much easier to kill time during a flight by listening to all the great music your personal assistant has downloaded and put on your iPod.

Pau continued the conversation...

"Apparently, the Charlotte Bobcats part-owner used to play in the NBA as well. He looks familiar...can't quite place it though."

"Who is this Jesus fellow people keep referring to? Did he play in the NBA?"

"Reporters kept asking me where I was on 9-11. Is 911 a room number at the hotel or something? I'm baffled".

I think most people are amused by it and don't post, but little kids, overseas people who speak english as a second language or people whose brains don't get "satire" always feel compelled to respond.
