This is how Adrià, the less known brother of Pau Gasol: from an entrepreneur to resume his passion for basketball

After 41 years of career, Pau Gasol retires. He does it with an enviable trajectory, in which he has reached all the goals he could imagine: 11 golds with the Spanish national team, two NBA rings with the Lakers, six times All Star and a Basketball Spain glass with Barça. However, Catalan is not the only member of him with a gift for sports, since the two brothers of him, Marc and Adrià, have also inherited.

Of all of them, perhaps, Adrià (28) is the least mediatic of the three, since his life has not turned altogether around basketball. The young man has always maintained a profile of the most discreet and little is known about his personal life. The Instagram Account remains private and he does not usually offer prints with her family, except for a vacation with her brothers in Ibiza. In fact, the moment was made viral worldwide, since, in an image that climbed Pau to the Instagram Instagram, many confused him with Mike Conley, Marc's teammate at the Memphis Grizzlies.

For a while, it seemed that Adrià would follow the wake of giant of her brothers. At age 12, he entered the team of Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, where he had also played the brother of him Marc. There he picked up the guschalillo and was fond of him. He came to enter the team at the University of California, but as 'Walk on', that is, without a sports scholarship. That's why he's career there was not very extensive and he returned to Spain.

In our country, his career as a player has gone through different points, such as the Eba League, where he participated with the Sant Feliu de Llobregat. In 2009, he suffered a serious setback, since because of an injury he broke the internal and external laterals of his left knee.

The young man recovered without problems of that and, in fact, was not a great barrier to his life, since he had a plan B, because he had studied administration and management of companies and went to work in a company that Marc has in Girona .

Basketball, however, returned to his life and currently plays as a pivot, the same position as his brother Pau, in the Espanyol de Basketball, team that militates in the Second Catalan Division and who is not officially recognized by the club, since It is a project that tries to recover the different sections of this.
