To acknowledge your opponent's effort some players will give each other a handshake, while others give a pat on the back, but Pau Gasol has a very intimate way of showing respect.
The Los Angeles Lakers edged out the Thunder on Friday to win their first game in the series. With one minute remaining in the hard-fought battle, Gasol and Serge Ibaka got tangled up after a free throw. Ibaka hugged Gasol, but Pau went nuts. The Lakers forward gave Ibaka's balls a little love pat. Seemed like a strange time to perform a hernia exam, but I guess that's how they do it in Spain. If only Metta World Peace could be this friendly towards the opposition.
