While Pau Gasol can come across as a bit of a whiner on the basketball court, the Chicago Bulls power forward is pretty awesome off it.

In fact, Kobe Bryant was such a big fan of Pau Gasol he was apparently upset when he heard his former teammate had decided to sign elsewhere instead of retiring together in Southern California. Alas, now in the Windy City, Pau Gasol is expected to have a resurgence for the Chicago Bulls who seemingly fit his skill set perfectly.

But before the season officially kicks off, Pau Gasol is ready to have a fiesta with Elmo of “Sesame Street” as the television show posted a video of the native Spaniard rocking out with the famed child icon.

So you’re probably wondering what the hell Pau Gasol is doing on the child television show, right? Well the NBA veteran is getting ready for Fiesta Nacional de España and for whatever reason decided to include his Sesame Street friends in the party.

I’d give you a better explanation as to why, but this is also the same guy who’s working on recording a Christmas song.

Clearly, Pau Gasol is awesome.
