San Antonio Spurs big man Pau Gasol is no stranger to achieving many feats and accolades atop the highest level as a NBA player. However, Gasol has now achieved quite the impressive feat on the international stage, becoming the new all-time leading scorer in FIBA EuroBasket history.

Upon claiming such a title, Gasol surpassed both Spurs point guard and current teammate Tony Parker and Dallas Mavericks big man Dirk Nowitzki.
