MT: Let’s begin with a no-nonsense question. What’s your favorite cereal?
Gasol: Frosted Flakes. That’s easy. Also, Corn Flakes … with sugar. I guess that’s basically Frosted Flakes, but I started eating them when I was very young in Spain.

MT: Tony the Tiger, huh. What about your favorite meal?
Gasol: Sushi. I love doro, I love sea urchin, I love salmon … All kinds really. Seafood is big part of Mediterranean culture, and I grew up eating it in Barcelona.

MT: How about your least-favorite food?
Gasol: I don’t like really spicy food. I can’t really eat it, because it kills my tongue and my taste. I just don’t like it. There are spices in Barcelona, but they’re not really hot.

MT: OK, still on the food bit. What’s your favorite restaurant?
Gasol: I’d have to go with Nobu. There’s one in L.A., but they’re also growing around the world. In Barcelona, my favorite place is Shunka. It’s a Japanese restaurant where you can get sushi and plenty of other food as well. They have everything, and it’s amazing.

MT: What non-basketball sport do you enjoy the most, and who’s your favorite athlete in that sport?
Gasol: Tennis. My favorite player is Rafael Nadal, who’s from Mallorca in Spain. We’re pretty tight.

I think Sasha reminds him of Nadal with that hair.

And Sanford and Son? Missed that show a lot.

Great interview.

I used to watch “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” I know the intro song. “In West Philadelphia, born and raised…”

Yes Pau YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

Sweet interview, I love just asking normal stuff like this, non-bball talk with non-cliche answers

Fun stuff. It would be cool if they did this for the rest of the team.

MT: You probably know Selma Hayek, don€™t you€
Gasol: Actually I know Penelope Cruz better. I like her sister Monica (google images link), too.


She's fine.

The three are hot, but I only consider Angelina Jolie a good actress.

She is.

I've never liked Penélope, though.

So? The Oscar has been a joke many times. Cruz didn't deserve it at all, for instance. Kathy Bates should have more than one Oscar, but I suppose she isn't cool enough.

If only they did these kinds of interviews with every one on the team. It would be an even more interesting read. That was pretty fascinating :D

OT
I like Theron and Jolie's acting, I think Hayek is good also, Cruz isn't really my favourite.
