VIDEO: Rafael Nadal’s message of congratulations to the Gasol brothers

Spanish basketball brothers Pau and Marc Gasol have made history as the first European players to be voted by fans to start next month’s NBA All-Stars game in New York.

Rafael Nadal has recorded a message congratulating the Gasol brothers. Watch:

Pau, who plays for the Chicago Bulls, will play his fifth All-Star game after coming second in the voting for the Eastern Conference side. Marc, of the Memphis Grizzlies, will take part for the second time – but on each previous occasion, both players had been reserves, who are chosen by a ballot of head coaches. The Gasols are also the first brothers to both make an NBA All-Stars starting line-up.
