Pau Gasol spoke about modern basketball, especially in the NBA, and about the defense which, according to the Spanish legend, has disappeared.
“The defense has disappeared. I don’t like the fact that we’re losing the essence of basketball which is team play,” Gasol said.
“Before, if you shot in the first eight seconds of the action, they sent you to the bench. It’s all run and gun now.”
“The defense has disappeared. I just don’t like that the essence of basketball is lost… which is playing as a team”
“Before you shot in the first 8 seconds of possession and they sat you on the bench. Now he’s a street runner.”
