“Hopefully people will talk about it a little bit and sing his praises a little bit. He’s not the type to toot his own horn, so, I think it’s important for Los Angeles to kind of pay their respects for what he’s done for this franchise. He kind of goes under the radar, slips under the mat for whatever reason. He’s a fantastic player.”
— Kobe Bryant on Pau Gasol reaching 15,000 points.
I really admire Pau and I want him to be a Lakers for a long time. I hate it how some of you are pushing anf fooling around him off the last couple of days. Its so funny because we are playing amazingly basketball since Mike Brown was released and since the new system of DAntoni got over. So the funny thing is, that there are sitll some of you guys who are whining and want an new PF on this position. Just tell me why? Just because Pau CAN NOT play solidly defense? Or just because he socres 10 in one quarter and finishes the game with 12? Its so stupid
You gotta learn to appreciate for what Pau does. He is still fighting in his heart and he is still happy to be part of this organisation. WHO CARES if he is just an 15 PPG player now? Really we dont need him to be the 2nd Star anymore. Dwight is there. Steve is there. God damn, even Metta is there (Kobe is Superstar). So I dont know why you are still bothering yourself! Just enjoy our journey right now because I believe we are building on a great streak the next days with this team!
And if there still are some of you who dont like him for any reason, they can totally have my respect but also I will not try to fall in discussions with this because its just ridicilous after all what Pau did for this team and for this organisation and he [expletive]ing brought us 2 titles! I know you always say forget the history but its FACT!!!!!
will always like Pau.
