The legendary Spanish big man has already retired from the national team, after playing in his fifth Olympic Games. The 41-year-old big man claimed 11 medals in FIBA competitions.

Pau Gasol spent the vast majority of his career in the NBA, where he won back-to-back championship with the Los Angeles Lakers (2009, 2010).
