Pau Gasol opened up about his time with the Los Angeles Lakers and praised his former team.

Gasol, who recently retired from basketball, said it was an ‘honor’ to play for the Lakers and being part of the organization.

“Being part of the Lakers family was an honor. We had a sense of higher responsibility beyond yourself as a player,” Gasol told Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

Pau Gasol spent six years with the Lakers (2008-2014) and won back-to-back titles with the 17-time NBA champions (2009, 2010).
