We ve heard through the grapevine that super-hoopers Shane Battier and Pau Gasol weren t too happy when Fly on the Wall compared their Big Time cover photo to a picture of Ace and Gary, Saturday Night Live s Ambiguously Gay Duo. We hope everyone understands that this was meant to be a critique of the magazine s art direction and by no means a suggestion that our Grizzlies sho-nuff wonder twins are anything less than a pair of swinging he-men. Of course, meeting ladies of quality may become more and more difficult for Pau should the Grizzlies remain his primary image consultant, that is.
Check out this artist s rendering of our Spanish fly-guy from a Grizzlies-produced brochure promoting Pau and his (definitely) platonic partner Shane as co-Rookies of the Year.
Well, at least he seems polite.
