Among the highlights of my interview in the video above with Lakers forward Pau Gasol, who spent the last week in the African nation of Chad as a UNICEF ambassador:
--Why he described the trip as “intense”
--How he processes the suffering he sees around the region
--How Gasol helped with feeding and sanitation efforts
--Playing pickup basketball games with the citizens there, mostly as a perimeter player
--What he plans to do with his own foundation
--The rest of his offseason plans
