File this one under "Comical Nonsense That Has Very Little To Do With Basketball But Most Definitely Warrants A Hack Photoshop Job": According to France 24 (via Dime), Spanish NBA forwards, Pau Gasol and his younger brother Marc, have dubbed parts of Disney's latest "High School Musical" movie into Spanish. ¡Cómo cadera!
Now, unfortunately, neither of the two brothers break into song or dance — because no one would have watched that on YouTube — but instead lend their bearded voices to a scene where the fictional East High Wildcats basketball team play a key match. Marc explains:
"It was difficult. You have to get used to it, get into the role. It was not easy."
A basketball player playing a basketball player. Yeah, I could see how that might be difficult.
