Lakers Legend Pau Gasol Set to Join Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame

Lakers legend Pau Gasol expected to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, along with other icons like Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki and Gregg Popovich.

Former Los Angeles Lakers player, Pau Gasol, is set to join the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame alongside other basketball icons such as Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki, and Gregg Popovich, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The announcement comes after the Lakers retired Gasol’s jersey number, 16, earlier in March, honoring his 18-year career in the NBA. Gasol had his best years with the Lakers, earning three NBA All-Star appearances and two NBA championships with teammate Kobe Bryant.
