IMMIGRANTS OF THE DAY: IMMIGRANTS ON THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS

The LA Lakers are perhaps the most popular basketball team in the world, but, of course, my loyalty is to the hometown Memphis Grizzlies. One of my favorite players, Spaniard Pau Gausol, left Memphis for the Lakers last year and I still like the guy.  Here are the Lakers international team members:

Pau Gasol - Forward/Center - Spain
Didier Ilunga-Mbenga - Center - Congo
Sasha Vujacic - Guard - Slovenia
Sun Yue - Guard - China
