Bulls’ official stance: Pronounce Pau Gasol’s first name with an exclamation!


Most basketball fans know how to pronounce Pau Gasol’s name by now. This is his 14th season.

But now that he plays for the Bulls, Gasol has a new pronunciation for his first name.

It’s not not Pow. It’s “POW!” with the exclamation point.

I’m going to start using that.

Gasol scores in the post – POW! Gasol blocks a shot – POW! Gasol sets a hard screen – POW!

Nicknames (and old-school Batman scenes) have stemmed from less.
