NBA legend Pau Gasol recently joined JJ Redick’s podcast for a discussion about his career, Kobe Bryant, his retirement and several other topics. One of those topics turned out to be Pau’s basketball activities at this point in his life. Asked about the lack of that locker room atmosphere, Pau spoke about the work he’s done with the Golden State Warriors.
Speaking on veteran leadership, dressing room presence and general mentoring, Pau Gasol said: “Young people can benefit from your knowledge and experience, and you can help them grow and help them in their journey. I’ve enjoyed those different times in my career, and I kind of miss it. But now I’m exploring a potential role with a team. I’ve been a little under the radar with the Warriors, and they’ve kinda opened their doors for me to come in and have some meetings and see some of the guys and talk to some of them. That was nice. Maybe I’ll do that more and more as I go.
Although Pau did not specify exactly what this role with the Warriors was and could be, he gave the impression that it was something he was looking forward to progressing with. As an accomplished NBA champion and Hall of Fame lock, it certainly can’t hurt to have Gasol around.
