With Dwight's uncertainty, I'm not so sure about the Pau trade. This is where the Jordan Hill injury stings even more.


If Dwight's out for an extended period or needs surgery, you wait on trading Pau until the offseason unless we get a great deal (Josh Smith).

We may need our best cheerleader to play ball again.

Freaking heck...

So dwight goes out, pau gets the starting 5 spot for 12 minutes, we lost a 8 point lead and Pau didn't score a single point?


...

Im beside myself. Pau couldn't score against freaking Gortat? Did he even try to post?


He didn't do jack. He stood around on offense or turned the ball over and on defense he watched Beasley lose the ball, pick it up, blow past Metta and found himself being wrecked by Beasley while barely contesting instead of helping Metta close out.

Regardless if Dwight stays or Not, Gasol cannot Defend at all, what good is a 7 footer that cannot block and contest shots on a nightly basis?

He's good for trading this offseason as a huge expiring.

Pau looked like absolute garbage early and late. It would be alright if this seven footer was a positive on offense OR defense, but he hurts us in both categories.

got stripped.


Oh this is wonderful.. Right on the eve of complaining about coming off the bench he gets the starting 5 spot on a game in hand and couldn't do a darn thing...

Poetic justice... I wonder what his ego feels like right now.


If he keeps performing like this NO TEAM is gonna buy that he can even be a starting 5 anymore.

So after a day and a half of whining about his cuirrent predicament he gets ample opportunity to back it up and blows it... While being a distraction in the locker room to boot and not backing it up on the court.

This guy is a 19 million dollar cancer.

Yeah, and then they saw Pau play and probably backed off that.

His stock has dropped quite a bit.

Pau for Smith would've been ideal. But adding Harris would be a significant bonus. god mitch why didn't you take that

Looks golden in hindsight but even at his worst I don't think mny expected Pau would play this bad especially given having Nash.

But now the truth is so apparent it would be hard for a team to bite and his 4th quarter and locker room distractions, not backing it up on the court and coming a cropper against the freaking suns... Says all that needs to be said.
