Pau Gasol impersonator has his own commercial
Had Lakers Coach Phil Jackson known about this venture, perhaps he wouldn't have lamented playing Pau Gasol so many minutes during Andrew Bynum's 24-game absence at the beginning of the season.
Instead of suggesting the Lakers need to acquire a backup center, questioning Bynum's prolonged timetable or needling Gasol altogether, Jackson simply could've hired Pau's impersonator. Lancaster resident Michael Fanter has already made waves with The Times' Lakers blog noting a few Laker fans outside Staples Center believed he was the real deal more than a year ago. But should Jackson find the need to rest up Gasol for the postseason, it might not hurt to view the following commercial below and consult Fanter's website.
