Best case 17/10/4 worst case 15/9/3...either way I hope he gets traded


I doubt we get anything good for him now. Might as well resign him for cheap after this year.

Pau = 18/12/4

 

Exactly what I was guessing. Might be even more depending on how long Kobe is out.

He's going to have a good first month, putting up averages of 20 points and 12 rebounds with 3-4 assists. However by the end of the year, his averages are going to taper down to 17.5/10/3.5. Hopefully it's more as he's again the exclusive big dog in the post. Being that exclusive presence in the post, he's going to have to provide good help defense instead of just watching, which I'm not sure he can do. Having Hill in there as another athletic presence should help a lot. Gasol and Kaman will be a terrible defensive frontcourt when they play together. I really do wish Pau the best though; everyone has a ego, even Pau, and I'm happy for him to have the opportunity to feel featured again.

If he plays center, you will see Olympics Pau who, offensively, will make Dwight look like a pussy

He'll have a good first month.

Pau lovers will say "SEE!!! WE WAS RIGHT THE WHOLE TIME IT WAS THE SYSTEM!!"

he will struggle through mid season

Pau haters will say

"SEE! IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME!! He can't sustain that kind of effort anymore!" 

He will close the season strong in the final 10 games

Pau Lovers will say

"SEE!!! TOLD YOU!! HE CAN DO THIS!!"



That's IF he stays healthy.

Pau , as the 2nd option again?

 

 

I think that's his natural role.

 

pau not completely healthy, plus not loving his role, plus on the trade block is when we get bad Pau

Depends on how much time Kobe misses, but I think 16/10/4 is realistic...

Pau hasn't been the second option since Phil retired. It shall be interesting. I think 18-19 points on average is realistic

If Pau can put up these numbers for just 1 game, I'll be happy....doubtful though.

Love the Pau excuses.  Fact is its been 3 years since their last ring.  Don't care what his role is.  He won't be that good ever again. 

Is that the going excuse for the last 3 years?

And when he stop pouting for instances or got healthy for small stints, he produced at a frustratingly high level.

Damn, I really miss 2008-2010. Everything was like balanced. I hate this "Super Team" era. Superstar players don't have any pride or loyalty anymore. They just want to win without working for it.

If Pau does decent, 14/10, I'd be happy cause he'd be able to do about the same 2014 for a cheap ass contract

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

All these numbers are irrelevant.

The only one that matters is 82. End of story.
