Gasol, who has been at the center of trade rumors for most of this season took time to share a couple of thoughts on Jordan.

Gasol also tweeted the message in Spanish on his account, the messages were retweeted more than 1,000 times in the space of an hour.

The Lakers forward has been linked with a move to the Phoenix Suns by the Thursday deadline but as yet no trade has been agreed.
