Pau Gasol is one of the greatest humans. In fact, he may actually be the greatest human. Like I’m not even exaggerating. If you said Pau Gasol was the greatest human I’m not sure I would argue with you. Just go to his Twitter and scroll through his tweets–they’re amazing. I’m fairly certain Pau was a founding member of #nicetwitter. Plus I just realized I’m very comfortable just calling him Pau and I’ve never even met him, so that shows just how awesome he is.
The other day he proved it again when he visited Sesame Street to hang out with Elmo and the gang. Not many basketball players, or professional athletes in general, would take the time to go on a television program for little kids, but of course Pau would, because he’s the best.
You know what makes me sad, though? That people are going to find a way to hate on Pau because of this. I know you should never read the comments, but just look at that first comment under the video. It’s someone complaining that Pau is somehow soft because he was on Sesame Street. As if going on Sesame Street has anything to do with how Pau plays on a basketball court.
Like, come on. Let go of that hate. How can you have so much hate in your heart that you are going to complain about a basketball player appearing on Sesame Street. He’s just an awesome guy having fun in his free time. I see no reasonable way in which that can be hated on, so don’t even start.
