Pau Gasol a cool customer during earthquake


As most people know, Sunday's 7.2 earthquake happened shortly after the Lakers' 100-81 loss to the Spurs. Precisely, to be exact, as the locker room was open to the media. As you watch the video below, keep an eye on the white hangers behind Pau Gasol. Their swaying grows increasingly noticeable, until finally everyone realizes the underbelly of Staples Center is rocking like a ship on the ocean.



Like the media members surrounding him, El Spaniard eventually reacted with an unprintable expletive, but he was definitely the last to get rattled. Dude just kept on chugging along, talking about ways to improve the Lakers' execution.

That's what we refer to in the industry as a "pro's pro."
