Gasol Joins Bryant on All-Star Team

For the fourth time in his career Pau Gasol has been named to the Western Conference All-Star team.

Gasol has averaged a double-double on the season with 18.4 points and 10.6 rebounds to go along with 3.7 assists and 1.92 blocks per game while starting games at both center and power forward.


Pau made his All-Star debut in 2006 in Houston but failed to record a point as he went 0-for-3 from the field in just under 15 minutes of play but did grab a game-high 12 rebounds for the West. Since then he’s gone for double-digit points in both appearances, tallying 14 in Phoenix in 2009 and 13 last year at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

The 60th All-Star Game will be played at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 20.
