To begin, I am going to talk about Pau Gasol. Pau Gasol is a Spanish basketball player, who plays in Chicago Bulls. He is the second Spanish player to play in the NBA. Marc, who is his brother, plays basketball too. Actually, he will be the only white-coloured player.
Regarding Jimmy Butler, we know that he is a 26-years-old Chicago Bulls' player. At the moment, he has a knee injury and Pau will replace him, in the All-Star. The NBA All- Star Game is a basketball exhibition game which is played between the Eastern and the Western Conference. It is the first time that it will be out of USA, in Toronto.
Toronto is the provincial capital of Ontario and the most populous city in Canada. There it is found the Air Canada center, where the Toronto Raptors, the local NBA basketball team, usually plays.
Finally, I think that American players are very good at this sport, although some Spanish are good too, like Rudy Fernández, Ricky Rubio, Juan Carlos Navarro and both Gasol brothers.
