Pau Gasol congratulates Gilas Pilipinas

Pau Gasol of the Los Angeles Lakers congratulated the national teams of Philippines, Iran, and South Korea for earning a slot in the 2014 World Basketball Championships in Spain.

Gasol, who is expected to once again play for the Spanish national squad, sent his felicitations via microblogging site Twitter Sunday night (Manila time). Gasol excused himself from taking part in the FIBA EuroBasket this year because of a lingering injury. Philippines and Iran are still playing for the Asian championship when Gasol sent the tweet.
