Of course. He was 100% locked in, focused, and hungry.

He was so happy to get out of that dump Memphis, and Kobe and Phil were happy they have a bigman who can catch a pass

Kobe only had 6 points in this game or something like that, and we still won.

Oh the days when I was convinced having Pau Gasol on the team would ensure a championship. How times have changed.

His best year by far with us though was the year after we got embarrassed by Boston in the Finals. He was on a mission that whole season and that was also easily the toughest Pau we ever saw. He finally didn't take [expletive] from KG in the Finals and more than held his own. He wasn't letting himself be bullied anymore by no one. That fire, that passion, it was so beautiful to see.

Should have been traded 2 years ago. After that 2nd championship his fire left completely.

Remember when Pau Gasol was able to (kind of) stop Dwight Howard and score against him at the same time? Seems like so long ago.

Fitting tat he limped off the court tonight - injured. And then the team played inspired ball the last 3.5 and pulled out a big win.
