As you may know Pau Gasol is one of the smartest and most humanitarian guys in the NBA. Gasol was enrolled in medical school at the University of Barcelona and continues to be very interested in medicine. He volunteers regularly at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
If you don’t know, a super typhoon hit the Philippines in early November killing thousands and leaving millions homeless. The NBA and players alike have been donating money over the last couple of weeks but Pau is being creative with his donation. He’s decided to donate $1,000 for every point he scores Friday against the Golden State Warriors. He’s urging others to play along and donate as well.
One of the people who is helping Pau out on his quest is EX Lakers coach, Phil Jackson. The zen master tweeted to Pau he would donate $50 per point, $50 per rebound, and $1,000 for every charge taken! Hopefully, Pau is up for the challenge as he’s got a lot of money to raise!
Good luck Pau, and get a Lakers win in the process!
