Photo of the Day: Gasol is Tall

Pau Gasol was born in Barcelona, Spain, but has played on US LA Lakers basketball team for the last seven seasons.

On his first visit to Israel, he paid a visit to Israeli President Shimon Peres this am.

Whether his idea of  ‘tolerance through sports’ will sell better than his ‘Madrid for Olympics’ only time will tell.

But one thing is for sure, Gasol has height advantage.  The seven footer, with two silver medals from playing Olympic basketball for Spain, today presented Peres with an autographed jersey in the Israeli President’s Residence in front of members of a Jerusalem Arab-Israeli youth basketball team.

Pau Gasol was looked up to by everyone in the room.

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets

    Holy age-induced hearing problem, Batman! I always thought they were saying Paul Gasol, instead of Pau Gasol. Bam! Klunk! Pau!

    I can’t believe none of the Hebrew speakers said the obvious: Gasol is gadol!
