Another Accolade in the Books for the Spaniard Pau Gasol

There’s no question that Pau Gasol has had an incredible NBA career that has spun nearly two decades.

An incredible big man on the court and a first class citizen on the court.

Across the pond, Gasol has had quite the career as well as a member of Spain’s national team. Gasol has truly become an international icon and one of the all-time great European players to ever step foot into the NBA. In fact, Gasol career in Europe has been so great that if you are to look at the EuroBasket all-time scoring list, you will see the Spaniards name atop the pile.

With just under five minutes to go in Spain’s game over the Hungarians, the two-time NBA champion hit a three-pointer, passing French legend and fellow San Antonio Spurs teammate Tony Parker’s mark with 1,033-career points.

 

Parker, who reached the mark back in the 2015 EuroBasket tournament is missing the 2017 tournament dealing with a lower body injury which forced him to miss time in the 2017 playoffs.
