Sin embargo, los seguidores norteamericanos han vuelto a poner en evidencia su falta de conocimiento sobre el resto del mundo. Ayer por la tarde se pudo comprobar a través de las redes sociales que hay aficionados que no sabían que, a pesar de militar en franquicias NBA, jugadores como Pau y Marc Gasol o Serge Ibaka disputaban la final con España y no con Estados Unidos.
He aquí una recopilación de tweets elaborada por el blog BBallHeadlines que lo demuestra:
This the first basketball game I've caught of the Olympics can someone explain to me why Gasol playing for Spain??
I need another answer besides Gasol from Spain, I know that but he play for the US sooo, again did he have a choice to play for Spain?
umm question why is Gasol playing for Spain ?!
I'm confused as 2 y Pau & Marc Gasol R playing 4 Spain? I know they're from Spain but they're American so R they also playing 4 team #USA?
Hey, what the hell, isn't Gasol American ????
