Gasol’s arrival to Earth is a special one as he realizes teammates have arranged for Starman to be played on the Jumbotron.

A fearful Gasol begins to "Wolf Up" after seeing something extremely rare and foreign to him — a bald armpit.

Channeling Desmond from Lost, Gasol simply can’t believe that underneath his jersey he’s wearing Andre the Giant’s Tarzan tights (see left shoulder).

    Awesome. He looks like Andrew WK. I imagine him screaming LET’S GET THE PARTY STARTED in Spanish the whole time he’s playing.

    Funny thing is – the guy’s even softer than his brother. Should be arrested for that.

    That boy isn’t soft… he put in a lot of solid interior play in those Games.

    I’m interested to see how his NBA career kicks off.

    Is he doing some sort of ‘Thriller’ dance in the third picture? And how does a Spaniard with that much facial hair have silky-smooth arms?

    Shave the beard, leave the mustache, and you have Italian Spiderman.

    @ retard:

    good question. how DOES a hairy-faced man have such smooth arms?

    btw-i think he’s taking a fashion page from che guevara’s book; all he needs now is a beret and have a sweet picture taken of him that will go on t-shirts and all over the world
