WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?


I think Minnesota should give us Love and Pau can adjust to their system.

He needs his body frame from 2010 when he actually had muscles.... he was much better then.

Why cant he just play like in 2008-2010 period? I mean why is it so hard for a player to get back to his old game? He never had any major injurys..I just dont get it!!!!


Its called age? lol.

Of course he's gonna say that. He aint telling people he cant. He wants to be here and everyday passes by and he don't get a message from his agent is a blessing.

We need a third option ( Reliable and consistent). Gasol has always been under pressure due to trade rumors. He knows this is his last chance to prove it with Nash(more pressure than ever).


No surprising he played great against USA in the Olympics.


I doubt he'll build confidence.

I don't think age is why is Pau has declined. It's just mentality IMO. He still has the same ability, but he just doesn't have the same drive to win like he did in the two championship runs in 2009 and 2010.

Really?? I dont think so. I actually believe he has regressed immensely athletically and physically due to age/injuries (which at times come together). I watched a games of Gasol 2009 and Gasol 2010, its just not the same player athletically. Players BLOW past Gasol now on defence and he doenst take it to the rim the same way he used to. Trust me his declined.

Of course he does.

Pau wouldn't say "You know I really don't think I can physically do it anymore... they should just trade me for someone like Josh Smith or that three team trade I saw on the internet and get a Derrick Williams and Trevor Ariza back, I'm just holding us back and taking advantage of Kobe's soft spot for me but the truth is, I'm done."

so... he aged that fast after the olympics? coz when he was playing during that time he looks very young and energized. so i dont buy that.. i think he just needs to be confident on his abilities which he doesnt have right now, thats why he's very passive on every aspect of his game.

I'm done with Gasol, he has worn out his welcome in LA. He has not given his all after signing his 64 milion 3yr. extension. He does not fit MDA system. He has become a polarizing figure and a distraction. He needs to be moved.

Pau Gasol helped a VERY mediocre Lakers team immediately become a finals contender and win 2 rings. He can still hit open shots. Fact is, the Lakers need to space the floor. Posting pau up crowds the lane and makes better post up players like Howard inefficient. The Lakers are an inefficient team and must capitalize on every offensive opportunity to have chances to win games. Pau would probably have to come off the bench and he is paid too much for that. Unless he lights it up with Nash back, he is worth more as trade bait.
