Pau Gasol is a man renewed, as he calls himself a ‘beast’ that feels ‘pretty good’

Spain forward/center and NBA All-Star Pau Gasol might be working as a decided underdog in the men's basketball tourney in this summer's Olympic run, but that hasn't stopped the versatile big man from putting together an offseason regimen that has the two-time NBA champion and Spanish team mainstay from thinking rather highly of himself. Higher than the big fella's already-impressive frame, and high enough that notoriously tough Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant has taken notice. From Reuters:

Bryant said the 7-foot (2.13m), 32-year-old Gasol looked stronger, absorbing contact and pushing back in an impressive display that boded well for future Lakers' success.
"I'm a beast," Gasol told Reuters. "Yeah, I feel pretty good. I feel strong."

Yeah, you're a beast, Pau. About damn time.


Gasol has always been a beast in international play, and for the most part acted mostly beastly during his celebrated time with the Lakers. The 2011-12 season, however, was a different and nastier beast — one that was at times too tough to watch.

Pau struggled during the regular season as he adapted to new coach Mike Brown's Bryant-centric offense, with his turnovers spiking in comparison to his last year under former coach Phil Jackson in 2010-11. And the playoffs, for the second consecutive season, were the biggest worry. Gasol played a frustrated brand of basketball that mixed uneasiness with at-times soft play that angered even his most ardent admirers.

Pau hasn't been aggressive the last two seasons, hopefully he can start attacking more and quit being a jump shooter

I'm glad to here Kobe say that and I hope it's true, and I'm glad to here Pau say that too, he needs to be more confident in himself, but I don't want him just to say it, do it.

Someone needs to create a Meme for next season for a picture of Pau and the words "BUT I'M A BEAST" for whenever he doesn't play beast-like :P

Next on FirstTake:

Skip Bayless: "Pau. Gasol. is. soft. I've said it before, I'm saying it again on the record." *raises his right hand, shakes his head* "Tiago Splitter is a better player than him."

Stephen A Smith: " WhaaaAaAat That's OUTRAEGOUS YOU ShOuLd Be AsHaMeD of YoUrSeLf. Pau Gasol is a manchild. He's a beast. Just look at his eyes."

Skip Bayless: "Well, he looks like a llama to me." *hand gestures*

Stephen A Smith: "Oh stop it. Just stop it."

and some more repetition.
