Pau Gasol made Kobe's last game in Chicago even more special with his player introduction


Pau Gasol introduces his friend Kobe Bryant one final time

"It's an honor to introduce to you, for the last time at the United Center, my former teammate and my friend, from Lower Merion High School, number 24, Kobe Bryant." - Pau Gasol welcoming Kobe to Chicago one last time.

Pau Gasol may now be in Chicago but he still loves Los Angeles and more importantly, Kobe Bryant.

On Sunday before the Bulls took on the Lakers for one last time with Kobe Bryant, the team introductions didn't follow the typical script. Rather than having the PA announcer do his thing, Pau Gasol via recording had the honor of introducing Bryant to the fans at the United Center one last time. Gasol was an instrumental piece in two of the Lakers' NBA Championships alongside Bryant.
