This just proves you just don't have a clue what you're talking about. ¿Privileged? His mom's a doctor and his dad's a nurse. Spain is not America, man, doctors here don't make millions, they are middle class at best. Doctors working for the public health system make (and I'm being super generous here and using the highest numbers) roughly 90000$ a year, nowhere near the 200000-500000 they make in the US.
Gasol was never the best Spanish player growing up, Navarro was better BY FAR. Gasol was not even a starter in the junior world cup in Lisbon 1999 when they beat the US. Reyes started while Gasol was a sub. in 1999 he played his first games as a pro (actually 4 games in the whole league, he just bench-warmed all the others) He kind of surprised everyone in the KIng's Cup finals in 2001, before that no one knew his name.
He probably doesn't know what it is to struggle or work hard, but he studied in medical school and at the same time trained with a professional team, using the bus to go from one place to the other.
You don't like the way he looks? Fine, I have nothing to say about that.
He's probably an "arrogant, self indulgent, self promoting person" but he spends his summers working in Chad, Ethiopia or Kenya helping others, and is an ambassador for UNICEF. I'll take that over a respectful human being sitting on his couch doing nothing.
If you don't want to be seen as a hater, don't hate, or at least base your hatred on facts, not lies.

Yeah. Needless to say, I can't see the game now. When last I saw our bench brought us back to within 2 and 1 and Kobe and Gasol came back in.

So ill take a stab in the dark and say

The ball has kept moving and we're ahead..

Or

The ball has stopped, only goes to kObe, our interior D is lacking and we're now down by 20.

Ill know when I get home what was right :)

Watching him get beat on backdoor cut after backdoor cut on backdoor cut last night was painful.


D'antoni is actually starting to show some semblence of Gasol and Dwight effective in the post at times but it means nothing if we are gonna constantly give up layups on the other end.

^ Also means nothing if we can't consistently do it. This team is often in identity crisis, although settling for three-pointers is probably if any, our most consistent one.

Morris and Goudelock outscored him tonight.

25,24,20,11

Which number is Gasols?


But he at least got a triple double
