This is fantastic news. The dynasty is solidified one step further with Pau’s extension! Congrats to Eric Pincus for breaking the story first!

L.A. Times: The Lakers and forward Pau Gasol have agreed to terms on a contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2013-14 season.

    Great! Looking back, i dont think the lakers could’ve had a better fit for them like pau, the guy is just so smart that he can do almost everything a big man can be asked to do. Really imagine us being with JO and w/o lamar and drew. We would be stuck in mediocrity and with no future ahead whatsoever. I dont think people knew a lot about pau b/c he was in memphis, but in LA , people wont forget him, and i think he deserves every dollar for what he brings. Love you Pau!

  • purple’n’gold

    thats really good news, now all we need is Mr. Clutch(Kobe) no disrespect Mr. West to sign an extension also and i can see more championships . Gasol is the perfect fit for Kobe and the lakers.

    Why give this fool an extension? They should ban him from international play. I say trade him for Big Baby Davis, straight up yo!!!!

      See you soon, punk. We’ll enjoy Pau running the green and black fools off the court.

        I agree with Chris, these gay lerprechauns have nothing better to do then to sit at the champions thrown and bother them lol U SUCK

        exactly chris. ban him from international play? trade him for big baby? haha nice try, we’re not the memphis grizzlies.

      CP! Dude!!!, this move has gotta have you shaking in your boots. You know that this means the Lakers are set to rule the NBA for the next 4 years, meanwhile Boston is panicking because they realize that their window is closing….. really fast, and because of the moves they made for a quick chance at a championship, it totally sabotaged their future. In the next 3 years, those clowns are gonna be bottom feeders.

    That’s great news but everybody knew this was going to happen no matter what.
    Kobe and Gasol deserve all the money they ask and I am sure Dr. Buss will gladly pay.

    Nice. Your turn Kobe.

    celtics sucks..they got whooped on by sixers..good job lakers for the extension

  • thanhttrinh

    who ? celdicks ? they will be suck all year long just like what happened last year, i dont care what haters said and i also dont care about the Celdicks, what i do care is Gasol stays a Laker, and back-2-back champs
    no team can beat us, no one !

  • thanhttrinh

    by the way, guys, think about this, Fisher is the oldest Laker, and i wonder that he would stay a Laker till hes going to retire
    Bynum, Odom, Gasol, these 3 guys still under contracts for at least the next 4 years, are u agree ?
    However, Lakers did it because they would keep Kobe stays a Laker
    then we sould take care of the bench, keeping Mr TNT legs and make some moves
    I can see a really, really possible of the Lakers’ dynasty would be coming up for years, that would be like 4 peat or something like that
    i promise !

  • Sasha4Lvp

    this story is BS….no other news outlet is picking up this story. my bet is that they are getting close but nothing official yet.

    • http://LakersNation Marwan..

      LA Times confirmed it, it was there first. Then ESPN.com confirmed it too. Its official, Pau is retiring a Laker.

  • Smush Walton

    After pissing money away on Luke and Sasha and way over paying Bynum, I am glad we had the sense to sign Pau. He is a great player and he is worth every penny. Also, I doubt he will turn into a bust once the ink is dried, unlike some of our other slackers.
