All he does is win: Spain 2-0. I recall him dropping 30 points on D12 in Orlando, so with Pau leading the charge, SPAIN will be the Redeem Team's biggest obstacle. They better hope D12 doesn't get into foul trouble because Bosh and Boozer won't be able to deal with him.

Until they play USA, go Pau! :D

Let's be true to ourselves though. For now, Pau is easily outplaying Kobe in the olympics.

I'm just glad Pau's bro isn't as dominant as him haha... we got the better Gasol :) I hope Pau does well regardless, but as long as the rest of his team gets shut down against the USA.

He just put up 13 and 5 on Kaman, Nowitzki, and Germany.
Not bad considering.

The thing is though, Kobe doesn't necessarily need to be instrumental in the US winning a gold. Pau does.

I did not see Pau play today, but certainly saw Kobe played, he's certainly improved in this game, but that shouldn't come as a surprise as today's gameplan is different from China and Angola anyway.

You guys that saw both, can give your comments? I'd say Pau still outplaying Kobe but the distance has diminished some.

I hope Gasol doesn´t get injured again in one of these tournaments, it would be bad for Lakers. Remember when he was injured in the World Cup, he wasn´t able to play until December (or February, I don´t remember).

Let's hope not. I don't think he will. Kobe and Pau will come back healthy. And with 2 medals... :rock:

That's why I don't understand people who say Memphis got ripped off. They couldn't afford Pau, so they got 2 nice prospects and 14 million saved from that deal.

Numbers as of now still good...but not very effective as US is stiffling Spain.
