"Now with Dwight gone I am the reference inside and I am more like I was a couple of years back when we made the Finals three straight times and won two straight championships," he added.

[...]

"These next two months are the key months to find out how they really are," he said, adding that he wasn't in pain.

[...]

D'Antoni "had a tough position, I had a tough position," Gasol said. "I had a job to do, he had a job to do, so there really is no mystery. I know he had challenges. It was a very challenging season. Next season is a different one and a new chapter. So we'll start out fresh and do our best."

A career scorer of 18-plus points a game, Gasol had his worst scoring season in 2012-13, averaging 13.7. Now the four-time All Star is aiming to bounce back.

"I have a great motivation," he said. "It's the last year of my contract so I want to get back to being one of the top players in the league."

 
 
I'm eager to see what he does. Predict his stats!

How about we estimate how many games he'll start? 

 

I say he will start 34 games.

I dont worry about Pau's stats as much as his impact overall.  Defensively he's become pretty bad.  So 18/10 isnt all that great when teams will be destroying them in the paint.  Pau has had some of the most productive seasons on paper the last 2-3 years that in reality werent all that great.

MDA going to screw it up somehow though. Watch.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.
