Worthy visits Barša Museum
Los Angeles Lakers legend James A. Worthy visited the Barša Museum on Tuesday and presented a shirt signed by current NBA star Pau Gasol.
A star of the Lakers in the 1980's he took the jersey along to the Camp
Nou complex with the number 16 on the back as he was keen to have a look around the Catalan club's
facilities ahead of the game between the two teams in Palau Sant Jordi. Gasol has signed the shirt
and dedicated to the Blaugrana where he began his professional basketball career.
Making his way up the ramp to the Barša Museum Worthy was escorted by a
host of television cameramen, photographers and journalists who all wanted to record the historic
moment of his visit. Worthy wrote his name into Lakers history and into the NBA record books as he
helped the Californian side to win the championship in 1985, 1987 and 1988 playing alongside the
likes of Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
After dropping the shirt off at the Museum Worthy was keen to see the Camp Nou and he stepped
out into the stands and looked at the arena and the pitch.
