The older of the Gasol brothers is a world champion, two-time EuroBasket champion, two-time silver Olympian and two-time NBA champion and has amassed a vast collection of individual accolades throughout his decorated career. The 35-year-old legend has long secured a place among the best European players of all time in the collective consciousness of fans, while for the best part of the past decade he has been sharing with tennis superstar Rafael Nadal first place in opinion polls for the most popular Spanish athlete. The public adores him because, despite his unbelievable success, he remains affable, low-profile and socially responsible. Yet, as he proved this season, Gasol will forever strive to compete and win, as if he has never tasted victory before. Following two lukewarm campaigns at the struggling Los Angeles Lakers and the disappointment of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2014, he joined the Chicago Bulls and led the NBA in double-doubles to propel his team to the Eastern Conference semi-finals, while he was named an NBA All-Star for the fifth time in his career. Gasol steps out at EuroBasket 2015 and this automatically means that he will only seek for Spain to make it all the way to the top.
