It’s been good last 24 hours or so for Lakers All-Star big man Pau Gasol. First, after hearing his name bandied about in trade rumors for months, he didn’t go anywhere during yesterday’s trade deadline (though the same couldn’t be said for Derek Fisher). Then, as we mentioned here last night, Gasol took to the Interwebs himself and sent out a YouTube message to his fans to recap the trade deadline and express his happiness to still be a Laker.
Yet neither of those things seemed to properly encapsulate just how happy Gasol might be about staying in L.A. When the Internet can’t make you happy, what do you do?
You sing, of course. Specifically, you sing for a charitable cause.
Gasol, an ambassador for UNICEF, performed on stage Thursday at the El Rey Theatre where he belted out his own version of The Fray’s “How to Save a Life” at a charity event.
