Gasol has night ruined by Bynum

Pau Gasol has revealed he had his Saturday night ruined by trade rumors.

Out seeing the Lion King musical with his family, the Spaniard was caught up in the hype surrounding the Bynum trade rumors as Twitter went crazy over the idea of a Bynum/Gasol trade.

As we all know now know Bynum ended up trading with Deng, but Gasol has revealed to ESPN Los Angeles that he was left in a state of confusion as he checked his phone during the interval:

“I checked my phone during the intermission and I see that it’s almost official.

“I was getting all these messages. ‘Farewell, Pau. Thanks for all your service’. And all that stuff”.

A relaxed character on and off the court, Gasol is never one to be fazed by the media.

In fact it seems the most upsetting thing for the 33-year-old was that it ruined the Disney classic for him:

“It was a really good musical. I enjoyed it.

“It was a nice family time. But that kind of affected it a little bit, the rest of the show.”

Poor Pau.
