I wondered why Pau Gasol didn't start?

Do you guys have any ideas?

Is he not good enough or what?

I think it was his idea not to...He said so before the games to allow his brother to carry the load...

Spain has 12 players of the first level, the real competition begins from 1/4, simply it is to give rest to your star. Spain does not need to Gasol 40 minutes in the field to wins games as if he needs Germany with Nowitzki for example.

Aito has 12 players , but some players are more importants . Calderon, Rudy , Pau , Marc ... .

I believe that perphas only Gasol Brothers , Calderon , Ricky , Rudy , Navarro and Garbajosa - Garbajosa perphas he needed more game time after the injury - are a top level in FIBA basketball. Not is possible win without these players . Reyes , Jimenez , Berni Mumbru and Raul are in other level .

If Aito could, would use to Gasol 40 minutes as FP and when not is Marc , as Center.

Pau is not up to speed, he's still recovering from the playoff effort and his sore ankle (that's why he didn't take part in the opening ceremony either). The goal is to have him ready for the elimination rounds.
