Hes essentially become the Lamar Odom of the team...just like Lamar hes had trouble being the Number 2 guy behind Kobe. So they lessened his responsibilities and brought in Howard and Nash. Pau just like LO gives you a solid 10 rebounds a game, plays decent one on one defense, he facilitates the ball and what not. Both are overpaid (Lamar was slightly overpaid haha ask GCMD
) but they fill their role perfectly since they allow the best players to be their best and they dont committ many mistakes. Obviously Lamar's 9 or 10 mil was easier to handle with a reduced role but Pau is eaning twice as that with the penalties being more harsh in today's NBA for carrying a heavy payroll
Just like LO hes basically our only valuable trade chip left. Hopefully Pau makes himself invaluable to the team...play himself out of the trade scenario but we've been asking of this for the last 2 years and instead his play suffers because of trade rumors
