Giannis Antetokounmpo paid tribute to the Spanish superstar Pau Gasol, who recently announced his retirement from basketball.

The two-time MVP took to Twitter to give simple respect to Gasol, who also became his teammate in Milwaukee for one season.

Antetokounmpo simply thanked the 41-year old in Spanish: “Gracias 🙌🏾 @paugasol”.

Gasol, who won two NBA titles and was selected All Star six times, clearly influenced European players today like Antetokounmpo to dominate the NBA today.
