It was a tough season for Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol, one filled with injuries, a marginalized role, and consistent trade rumors. Under these circumstances, the Lakers' exit from the playoffs might come as something of a relief for him, apart from the essential pain of losing.

In the midst of several comments on his preparation for a potential trade, Gasol revealed some exciting news about his future plans off the court.
