It was an open secret and it was confirmed Thursday night. Marc Gasol (Sant Boi, 1985) is back on the basketball court and will do so wearing the Bàsquet Girona jersey, the club’s founding and president.
It was the player himself who was responsible for giving the news at a passionate party held on the same track in Fontgau, where from now on he will try to continue to delight the loyal audience. His brother Bao, a resident of the United States, was the only one in the family who could not accompany him.
Before the magic of Levitec Huesca
He will likely make his debut on Friday, December 3rd
Middleweight Gasol decided to confirm the news among more than a thousand Girona fans, including the youngest, who heard it in the first person that the NBA champion would play for his team from now on. It’s definitely the news of the season in Spanish basketball.
After 13 years in the NBA, Mark decided to take some time this summer to assess his future. For about a month he had been training with Girona while he had just pondered his decision to return to playing basketball and pull his place.
Barcelona trusted Marc Gasol to end up choosing Barcelona
Thus the Catalan player will star in a situation unique in the world since he signed with the team he was already active in before the re-establishment, when he was called Akasvayu Girona, of which he is its founder, president and owner.
Gasol’s arrival should be a turning point for Rogblanco’s side, who lost seven consecutive defeats at LEB Oro and had their coach, Carles Marco, fired two weeks ago. A possible debut for the hub will arrive next Friday, December 3, on the occasion of the visit of Levitec Huesca la Magia, another team in crisis, to Fontajau.
The selection of Bàsquet Girona did not go well with Barcelona, whose executives had hoped they would pick Palau and thus put the icing on the cake for Barcelona.
