Pau Plays S-P-R-I-N-T With 6 Lucky Fans
Dec. 11th - 2x NBA champion and current superstar-ter for the Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol was at the Weschester Recreation Center in Los Angeles, CA for an hour playing S-P-R-I-N-T with 6 lucky raffle winners out of roughly 200-250 attendees.
Afterwards 4x NBA all-star big man did a scrum style interview for about 15-20 minutes with reporters. Following the interview Gasol went to the Sprint store with around 150-200 attendees at the Grand Ladera Shopping Center where he autographed ‘hero cards’ (an 8x10 picture with his name, team, and number below) and also took pictures with fans.
Special thanks goes out to Sprint for making this event happen. As Sprint continues to build out its all-new 3G and 4G LTE network, and in the spirit of the holidays, Sprint is giving back to the community by hosting events like these.
Pau Gasol is averaging 14 PTS, 10 REB, 3 AST so far this early in the season. Laker fans are happy to see their favorite PF/C take the time to play a quick game of S-P-R-I-N-T with the kids and sign autographs for fans just before flying out to OKC to face the red hot Thunder who've won 4-straight.
