A Pau Gasol look-alike has been patrolling Staples Center for a while now during Lakers games, fooling fans with his uncanny resemblance to the Lakers center. Michael Fanter has been at it again this week, pretending to be the big Spaniard at events surrounding NBA All-Star weekend. Former NBA player Chris Webber caught up with the fake-Pau just before the All-Star Game Sunday night and posted a video on Twitter.
Fanter looks a lot like the real Pau Gasol, if the real Pau Gasol stood outside the Staples center in his Lakers jersey before and after games. He also looks like a restraining order waiting to happen. The ladies don't seem to care one way or the other.
