VIDEO: Pau Gasol shaves his beard for the first time in nine years

He's not The Beard, but Pau Gasol has maintained a solid scruff for his signature look for the last nine years. 

But the beard is no more.

You see, Pau and his younger brother Marc squared off in a bet centered around their foundation and something called The Healthy Competition. Basically, it's an effort to take kids from their home city and encourage them to eat better and exercise. Marc won, so Pau shaved. 

A monumental moment for Pau as he's now been reduced to a baby-face with wild hair. Here's a little secret though, Pau: Don't feel bad for too long, because beards, you see, have this tendency to grow back.
