    PAU Gasol will donate $24,000 to the relief fund for victims of super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) after vowing to give $1,000 to every point he scored in the Los Angeles Lakers’ Friday night (Saturday morning Manila time) game against the Golden State Warriors.

    Gasol made a pledge on Thursday via his Twitter account and will give his donation for the United States fund of Unicef.
