True, but if u recall, Odom was here in 2011 when Pau started his sharp decline. When Bynum was injured we sucked, largely due to Pau's ineffectiveness in the paint on both sides of the court.
For the millionth time - Pau and odom finished games during the two chips. Paus decline was exacerbated when odom was shipped and Bynum got the low post (and #2 status) and Pau got relegated to the high post.
Offensively pushed off the block, stripped, passive, pass first post game. And no resistance weak side as a C, plus his assignment scores with ease.

People overstate how Pau and Bynum didn't play together in our championship runs. It's true that LO finished games, but we used to start games brutally effectively in the first quarters with Pau and Bynum playing volleyball on the offensive glass and interior passing leading to a lot o dunks.
The reason Pau and Gasol can't co-exist now is mainly because of D'Antoni's system and partially because of Pau's declining athleticism. If this was 2007-2010 Pau it would be different.
Our season was over when Jimboy passed on Phil. The triangle would have worked well with Pau and Dwight. We could have slowed the game down, pummeled opponents (Miami) in the post, and played methodically. Oh well...
First Jimboy is over 50 and been around Lakers since before a lot of us were born.
Secondly, Dr. Buss wanted showtime. Blame him.
Thirdly, if we can't win with Mike Brown or D'Antoni, it's on the players.
Pau has done NOTHING, in the post this year and he has had opportunities.
