Lakers.com: Thursday on Lakers.com, I’ll be posting a 1-on-1 podcast with Gasol in which we chat about the culture of his city of birth, Barcelona, as well as the club that first signed him as a 16-year-old (Regal F.C. Barcelona). While Pau’s always quite pleasant in interviews, he brightens up just a bit more when speaking about Barcelona (should you have had the blessing to travel to Barcelona, you know why).

Gasol first played with Barcelona’s youth team, where the best player was his current best friend, Juan Carlos Navarro, who joined Gasol with the Memphis Grizzlies last season before heading back to Spain for the coming season.

If any moderator/administrator who put news in the blog reads this, this new ultimately deserves to be in the blog.

Gasol is excited about playing Saturday against his former team, Regal FC Barcelona, when the Lakers play in a "shootout" at Staples Center. Gasol played five years in Barcelona.

He plans to spend some time with Barcelona players, especially Juan Carlos Navarro, a teammate on Spain's Olympic team that won the silver medal at the Beijing Olympics and a former NBA teammate with Memphis.

Gasol was born in Barcelona and lives there in the off-season.

"It's a special game for me," Gasol said.
