I don't think it's possible to be worse than Pau.

He's Kwame Brown status now

Pau Gasol is GONE

i just cant believe those two statements. especially when ilyasova is shooting 33% from 3(45% last year) , and ilyasova is an athlete

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Athleticism means nothing if you refuse to give effort.

Its so frustrating watch Pau these days, he does things that this team desperately needs (Quality mins at C, rebounding, passing, inititating the offense, etc) but he sucks balls at scoring the ball hes pretty much what Lamar is. He has the skills we need and we have to rely on him for that, not many big guys out there have the combo of passing skills and rebounding. But at the same time stop squandering open shots whether its 10 feet or 5 feet in the post. His struggles have become amplified because Dwight is not scoring as much as we want to, the expectation was for him to average 20 a game and hes not 100% and Pau is not pickign up the slack in the meantime.

TO be honest, my expectations of Pau are fairly realistic compared to some here and yet he seems to find a way to let me down also.


All he has to do is be decisive. Attack or pass. Find that rhythm he had with Bynum and both of those options will be easy for him on a regular basis. If he attacks, it opens Dwight up for the lob. If he lobs to Dwight, the lane opens up for him to attack.

As far as rebounding, I just want him to put effort into winning every 50/50 ball. Even if he doesn't get the rebound, it slows down the opposition in transition because it takes away the outlet pass...forces the guard to come back to the ball.


If he goes out there and just puts a little effort into controlling the boards, attacking quickly when he can and passing quickly to Dwight when the defense cuts off his lane to the basket, he'll be just fine and the Lakers will be a much better team.

That's realistic...

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Well, all superstars start their careers by being underpaid (like Blake Griffin, 7 million, and Kyrie Irving, 5 million) and at some point they're overpaid (Like Amar'e and Pau who both get close to 20).
At this point Lebron is vastly underpaid even at 17 million. I read somewhere that Lebron's worth was close to 50 millions per year for his team.
