Pau Gasol Sáez is a Spanish professional basketaball player who plays for the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Jimmy Butter is Chicago Bulls swingman. Currently, he has got a strained left knee, so he will miss three or four weeks. The NBA has announced that Bulls big man Pau Gasol will take the place of Butler in the All-Star Game. Pau is very lucky because it's the sixth time that he has gone to this game.
But what's the All-Star Game? It's an exhibition basketball game that will be played today. It will be the 65th edition and it will be the first time that the game will be held outside the USA, that is, in Toronto(Canada).
