Personally, I think Pau deserved it. What do you guys think?

L.A. Times: While approaching the restroom during halftime of a recent USC game, I noticed Jerry Buss standing ahead of me decked out in Trojan gear. The guy in front of me congratulated him on winning the championship. As I walked by I just pointed at him, smiled and said, “You should have never let Pau play in the European championships,” to which he replied, “You know, I think you’re right.”

    Playing for the national team is a great honor. Every player should have this possibility. I don’t regret that Pau played in Poland, even if this cost a couple of games early in the season. The most important is that Pau is feeling O.K.

    Remember, that playing for the national team is same or even more important than playing for any team. And I am not Spanish :)

    Go Lakers!

      If you had the opportunity to play for the Dream Team in the olympics along Kobe and DWade, would you? Of course you would, it doesnt get better than that. So let Pau do what he wants.

      Plus its not 83 games, its 96 games :)
