Pau Gasol - Spain and Los Angeles Lakers

Pau Gasol made good use of the extra time off this summer, a side effect of the early exit of the Lakers from the play-offs. He returned to the national team in great shape and once again proved that he is one of the best inside players in the world. When he took a break at the EuroBasket against Turkey, Spain struggled and lost their only game of the tournament. His numbers were as good as ever and his presence made life easier for his teammates, such as EuroBasket MVP Juan Carlos Navarro.
