Pau Gasol has been bearded for quite a while now. Sure, when he arrived in Los Angeles he tamed it a little, but we haven’t seen a clean shaven Pau for quite some time. Until today, that is.
Pau lost a bet with his brother Marc, and he paid it off by shaving off his beard. This wasn’t just some silly wager between two brothers, though: it was all in aid of the Gasol Foundation.
