He sings in the shower, pumps his own gas. He laughs at all his grandmother’s jokes, and fries a perfectly cooked egg.
Welcome to the normal life of Los Angeles Lakers All-Star center Pau Gasol.
In this one-of-a-kind, behind the scenes book, award-winning photographer Lori Shepler chronicles Pau’s life on and off the court, beginning with the 2010 season. Through sixteen chapters and more than 200 color photographs, Pau gives readers plenty of reasons to see what makes him such a beloved sports figure around the world.
Join Pau on his journey and discover what makes him so well-liked off the court. Phil Jackson, one of the greatest basketball coaches in NBA history, and Kobe Bryant, one of the greatest basketball players of all time, write in the book’s forewords that Pau is not only a gifted athlete; he is a treasured friend, a good brother, and a respected Renaissance man.
And in his own words—both English and Spanish—Pau reveals details about his private life, including moments with his family, his values, his philanthropy, his love of music, and much more.
He is Pau Gasol. Welcome to his life.
