Pau Gasol acknowledged that he still enjoys the challenge of facing off against the San Antonio Spurs. Gasol and the Bulls play the Spurs on Monday night.
"I do enjoy playing against one of the best teams, I think, in the history of the game," Gasol said after Sunday's practice. "They've been incredible for the last 15, 16, 17 years now since they won that first championship. So really impressive what they've done. I think everybody is trying to follow up on what they've accomplished. And building that culture, longevity. So yeah, I still do get very much motivated against a team that's always at the top of the league."
