His Nickname is "The Bomb"

And he's not the King of Spain, either. But he is yet another voyage into the international arena for the Memphis Grizzlies. Pau Gasol has his buddy, and no reason to whine this year. Beale Street is gearing up for some serious basketball this year.

Juan Carlos Navarro. "La Bomba". Should be interesting to hear that rattled off in downtown Memphis. The deal is reportedly in exchange for "a lottery protected first round pick."(

Drafted by Washington in the second round of the 2002 NBA Draft, having played in Spain for FC Barcelona since 1997 (at age 17), Navarro will become a valuable asset right away.

Nice work.

The Grizzles are going to have a team this year. Conley and Navarro are a couple of solid editions. Gay, Gasol, Miller, Darko... could be interesting.

It says on that wiki page that he is 6'3", 169 lbs. That cannot be accurate or la bamba es El Palo.
