LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Pau Gasol was only back in town for two days and one emotional game at Staples Center. He still cherished the chance to reconnect with Los Angeles, where he won two NBA titles with the Lakers and created a legacy that will endure beyond his basketball career.So many memories. So many battles, Gasol said. So many moments that I have lived and experienced. Itll be nice to play in front of Laker fans and have a great game, and try to focus on it and be thankful for everything that I experienced here.And though he only had one night off in L.A., Gasol also couldnt miss a chance to do some good.Thats why the Chicago Bulls 7-foot star sat on a chair Wednesday night in the cafeteria at Theodore Roosevelt High School in the Boyle Heights neighbourhood of Los Angeles, speaking in Spanish to about 150 students and parents gathered to hear his thoughts on health and nutrition.Although Gasol has moved to the Midwest to pursue another ring, his Gasol Foundation continues to do important community work in this heavily Latino area southeast of downtown Los Angeles. After his speech, he raffled off two books of his photography and a basketball before posing for photos with just about everybody in attendance.My commitment with children and infants and their future, its key — not just for now, but for the rest of our lives, said Gasol, who fronts the foundation along with his All-Star brother, Marc. Were trying to build a foundation that does great work, that benefits children and their families who didnt have the opportunities that we did growing up.Gasol got another warm reception Thursday night before the Bulls faced the Lakers, who handed out gold T-shirts reading Thanks Pau to every fan, with a list of his accomplishments on the back. Gasol, who shook hands with familiar ushers and attendants throughout the building, got a standing ovation in warmups and another long ovation after a pregame tribute video.Gasol walked to centre court and acknowledged the cheers with a wave of his arms.I was just overwhelmed, he said. I didnt know exactly quite what to expect, so it was emotional. You always welcome that kind of appreciation and support and love, so Im thankful to the fans that I played in front of for so many years.Gasol also got a pregame visit from Kobe Bryant, his longtime friend and teammate who just had surgery on his torn right rotator cuff Wednesday. Theyve been in regular contact since Gasol left town.It was an incredible gesture on his part to want to come and say hello so that we could see each other, Gasol said. It was an unexpected gift.The Bulls lost a double-overtime thriller to the lowly Lakers. Gasol forced the first overtime with a tip-in basket, leaning over Robert Sacre with 11 seconds left in regulation.Still, the 34-year-old Gasol has been revitalized in Chicago, earning an All-Star berth and playing some of his best basketball in the past half-decade.I thought it was the right move to make at the time, and were in a great situation, Gasol said. Im playing at a high level. Im motivated, Im energized and Im excited about what Im doing again, so its perfect for me.Although he walked away from another deal with the Lakers last summer, he misses Los Angeles weather and culture along with his innumerable friends.He doesnt miss receiving a large part of the blame for the Lakers gradual slide from championship contention to utter ineptitude over the past four years — a burden that meant seeing his name in countless trade rumours and subjecting him to vicious online criticism from the type of entitled fans created by championship success.Obviously, it affected me, said Gasol, who would have been traded to Houston in December 2011 in a deal for Chris Paul before the NBA voided it.I dealt with it the best way I could, Gasol added. I gave everything I had, but obviously you have in the back of your mind that you could be gone at any time. That can happen to anyone, but mine seemed to be in the paper and in the press continuously, multiple times, pretty much the last three years I was here.In Chicago, Gasol can focus on whats important to him — his sport and his off-the-court interests, which range from charity work to photography to the performing arts. He doesnt have to hear from friends about where he might be headed next, or log on to Twitter to find the insult-laden hashtag IdtradeGasolfor.Its a nice, rewarding feeling, Gasol said. Its a factor that people have overlooked as far as my performance is now, and how Ive been playing, and what it has been for the last couple of years, also. Just the fact of just focusing on the game and giving my best.Gasol expects hell always have ties to Los Angeles, and the Barcelona native anticipated that warm reception from Lakers fans when he hit the court. Although some Lakers fans blamed Gasol, many more appreciated his talents and attitude along with his remarkable devotion to his community, wherever it may be.For me, its like coming back home, Gasol said. A lot of memories, a lot of experiences come back to me. Unfortunately its a short visit, but it will be nice to play at Staples. Weird that it will be in a different uniform. Yankees J. A.

Yankees Luis Cessa Jersey .Y. - Matt Harvey wants to make sure hes on the mound in late October — if the New York Mets get there for the first time since 2006.BERLIN -- Arjen Robben and Thomas Mueller struck in extra time for Bayern Munich to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the German Cup final on Saturday, giving their side the double in Pep Guardiolas first season in charge. Robben scored in the 107th minute when Jerome Boateng intercepted Roman Weidenfellers throw out for Kevin Grosskreutz, and then crossed for the Dutchman at the far post. It set up a frenetic finale with Dortmund pushing for the equalizer that would have taken the game to penalties. Marco Reus came agonizingly close to equalizing in the final minute when his shot was deflected just over. Mueller then rounded Weidenfeller to wrap up the win in extra time injury time. Dortmund might have been awarded a goal in the second half. Mats Hummels thought hed scored with a header but Dante cleared on or behind the line. The score wasnt awarded though TV replays suggested the ball crossed the line. "If that goal from Dortmund was awarded it would have changed everything," Guardiola acknowledged. Bayern avenged its humiliating 5-2 loss to Dortmund in the 2012 final with its record 16th German Cup final win. "The most important thing is that we won. Its always something special. We took a lot of flak in the last weeks," Bayern captain Philipp Lahm said, referring to criticism after its Champions League loss to Real Madrid and drop of form after claiming the Bundesliga title with a record seven games to spare. Both sides effectively nulliffied the others attacking threat.dddddddddddd Robben posed Bayerns biggest danger going forward but was dealt with adequately by Hummels or thwarted at the last by Weidenfeller, who made crucial saves. Robert Lewandowski, playing his last game for Dortmund before joining Bayern on July 1, was kept in check by Boateng and Dante, with Javi Martinez also helping out in the Bavarian sides defence. Bayern, which beat Stuttgart in last years final, created marginally the better chances in the first half. Franck Ribery, who came on for the injured Lahm, crossed for Mueller at the beginning of the second half only for Weidenfeller to save from close range. Reus struck the crossbar with a deflected free kick, though Manuel Neuer, playing in his fourth consecutive German Cup final, had it covered. Dortmund was then left to rue Hummels "goal" that wasnt given. "Well still celebrate because it was a great season," Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp said. Bayern players celebrated the clubs 10th league and cup double by hoisting Guardiola high in the air and dousing each other in beer. "I dont particularly like the beer showers but thats how it is," said Guardiola, who was drenched by Dante. Boateng said the players would "celebrate without end. Weve won the double in my hometown. There are no words for it. Compliments to Dortmund, they made it very difficult. But in the end, we had the bigger chances and we deserved it."
