Pau for 10 mill? is Pau with 10 mill for another 2 years?

 

Think of this... He will take that cut. If MDA leaves 1000% sure he will.  The darft can be a huge bust. It will be a bust. Even if it isn't there is no way to be 100% sure you'll keep that player here. Few teams have been good through draft. OKC and SA. I would even say us (lakers). But not really , we stole kobe.  Bynum was decent and coulda been ALL-star like but didn't work.

 

We made our best seasons off trades and signs. Kareem,SHaq, Kobe, Pau, Glen Rice...ect

 

You guys tell me  if this isn't true.. History, money, Fame= power.... we don't find the talent , the talent wants to come here.. and if you have the talent  to stay here.. you will

pau is not getting a cent from the lakers this offseason. He's a waste of money and space.

Phil hit him in the chest for this reason.   3 seasons ago... 

 

He needed that.. I think Pau was and is fed up of being a 3rd option.. and just lost love of t he game. But i don't think he wants to let Kobe down again and will try if he has his brother

There was an excellent chance for us to trade Pau Gasol to Cleveland for A.Bynum and second round pic, but Mitch Kupchak refused to take it. After waiving Bynum, we could have saved about $ 25 million in Luxury Tax. Which could have means - NO LUXURY TAX at all.

That is why, I have read thousends of posts in the Lakers forums, where angry Lakers fans are calling him an I D I O T. He is really one natural (born) idiot, same as his boss with the baseball cap.

 

You do know that trade is not the only way for the Lakers to get under the tax threshold right? I'm assuming you didn't know that by your emotional response.

Pau is trying his best to trick the Lakers into keeping him.

He isn't even remotely close to below average. Look at his stats for the season, for his career, whatever. He puts up good numbers, lately he has been great. You guys see what you want to see, the Lakers would be far and away the worst team in the league without him. Not that they are lighting it up with him. The Lakers problem have nothing to do with him, other than the fat contract the FO gave to him, which is not his fault.

Pau is actually starting to produce more efficiently. I want to see that for a longer stretch though before declaring him "back". He had a decent stretch at end last season and everybody declared him back. Well, he wasn't quite the same during the postseason and he was awful to begin this season like he was most of last season.

 

People need to stop looking at volumn stats to determine whether or not somebody is playing well. Kobe scores 25+ a lot. I guarantee you he didn't play well in all of them.

 

For all the excitement about Pau's performance, Olynyk matched his production apart from rebounds. Anderson Varejao played better than him too in the Lakers' game against Cleveland.

I think it's nice that Gasol's playing well of late. So far in 2014, he's been at 20 pts, 12rebs and 5ast, shooting .500 from the field. That's pretty damn good. 

It won't change the fact that his days in LA are over, but it will might increase his trade value.

Every objective measurement would suggest that Pau is a way way above average player that put up not only good but consistent numbers. Every subjective measure are just that, subjective. He is the whipping boy for the Lakers, but the numbers over a huge sample size always tell the real story.

Nick Young puts up 16 a game. Is he a great player? No. But, his role is bigger on this team than it was at any other team he's been in.

 

Role on a team usually guarantees a player will put up some stats. As the primary big man and number one option on offense, he's going to get stats.

Marshall has been starting the last 8 games. Is it coincidental that over the last 8 games Pau has been averaging 20/11/5 on over 50% from the field or is there a correlation?
