Team USA defeated the reigning World Champions Spain (83-76) for their final preparation game ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Both Gasol brothers, Pau and Marc, are on the Spanish roster. Sports analyst Skip Bayless was impressed with the older brother Pau, who, at the age of 41, played pretty well, according to the co-host of UNDISPUTED.

Bayless even suggested the Los Angeles Lakers could bring Pau back. “Amazing to watch Pau Gasol play – and play pretty well – at age 41 for Spain. Still looks better than his younger brother. Maybe the Lakers should bring him back,” Bayless tweeted.

Gasol finished the season with FC Barcelona and is expected to retire from basketball at the end of Tokyo Olympics. Pau helped the Lakers win back-to-back championships in 2009 and 2010 along with Kobe Bryant.
