Unlike a lot of the big free agency news, Pau Gasol decided to announce his destination himself. The longtime Lakers forward told Twitter that he was joining the Bulls. It was looking like this was going to happen for a while, but in case there was any doubt, Gasol spoke in English and his native language to make sure he was crystal clear.
No ha sido fácil. Después de meditarlo mucho, he decidido jugar en los Chicago Bulls. Muy ilusionado de vivir esta nueva etapa.— Pau Gasol (@paugasol) July 12, 2014

So Chicago gets a decent addition and everybody gets a quick Spanish lesson. Meanwhile, is anybody confident in how the Lakers' 2014-15 is looking?
