I don't think anyone here is under appreciating Pau. I also don't think it has anything to do with his race or ethnicity. Why do you assume everyone here cares about only big dunks? He wasn't an All-Star every year because guys like Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, and Dirk Nowitzki were being put in front of him in the All-Star games. Pau Gasol is a power forward, and the "street ball" players that are getting voted in are usually guards, so they don't really take any votes away from Pau. I understand where you're coming from about Pau being under appreciated, but I don't think it's fair to call everyone here a fool or an idiot because they only care about highlight films, dunks, or voting "street ball" players in the All-Star game.
no im not generalizing here so don't get me wrong. I'm just saying some people doesn't realized that this guy Gasol got skills that is off the charts. Im not saying ALL the lakers fans or ALL NBA fans. Let me make that clear. Yes a lot of lakers fans realized it because they watched every game and watch Gasol in action but other people only like the centers and power forward that over powers people, block shots and dunk. That's what im saying. Highlight reel and street balling. And its obvious that today's NBA, nobody wants to learn the fundamental of basketball anymore. The bigger the block, the dunk and the highlight you get, the more love you get.
And in terms of race. I'm not saying he doesn't consider the best PF because he aint black. Yes it does have something to do with race a little but its more European players that have the moneger that they are soft. Lakers fans destroyed Pau for being soft and the reason why the lakers lost the final. It's just not fair. We lost the finals not because of Pau Gasol.
