Unlike many people, I believe Pau will have a very good season.  All-star season? I don't think so, but he'll be a lot better as long as he's at the center position. 

 

I agree. It's not going to be the championship Pau, but it's not going to be last year's Pau, either. I am eager to see what a full summer of training and rest will do for the Spaniard.

28 mile bike ride?!

I believe this dude is the key. If he comes back ready, plus a healthy Kobe, that's still one heck of a 1-2 punch that's done it all.

yes it is a one two punch.

As long as Pau doesn't try to outmatch Nick Young's wardrobe I think he'll be fine

Though after a big win a post game presser with Young dressed as he always dressed and Pau wearing this

Would be a sight :P

Gasol is running again and on grass. 

This evening I'm going to continue getting better. Weight room workout and then running on grass. Every day one more step forward.

No pain in knees apparently.


Gasol underwent "FAST technique" procedures May 9 after struggling with knee pain throughout the season.  He also received stem cell injections to help stimulate the regeneration of tissue in his knees.

Pau seems to be taking this season VERY seriously.  Me personally am just happy he's healthy enough in the off-season to even be working out and GETTING in shape like this.

two more months of working out won't be too bad for Gasol =p 

Also gives Kobe more time to go snowboarding down mount everest from a helicopter down to a basketball court and doing a 720 dunk landing perfectly and putting it on vine while his achillies "recovers"  while ESPN says "Kobe is still months away from returning, it's unknown at this point when he'll be healthy enough for basketball activities" 

=p

Your name and my name is why we shock people this year. Clutch factor : Kaman could hit a GW mid range shot. Meeks big time shots. Same with Farmar, Blake, Nick Young, Hill could get a big time putback. Kobe and Nash and Pau are different degrees of clutch.
And our brains are up there. And now it's not too many vets trying to have input.

Interesting stats from last year

Here’s a big reason why. When Howard was off the floor last year, Gasol posted a solid defensive rebounding rate of 22.6 – the same number as Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah and a better number than mammoth centers like Nikola Pekovic, Roy Hibbert and Kaman. Gasol may look a little soft, but he can more than handle his own on the glass. Truth be told, his post defense (only .75 PPP allowed last year) was pretty good as well, even though his declining athleticism and foot speed and didn’t help much in the way of rim protection.

Hill can rim protect and maybe Kaman and Pau's height can deter some of that but we need another defensive big. Even Odom would have helped.

Pau Gasol making progress with rehab; has been cleared for basketball activities

pau-gasol-lakers-trade.jpg
 

Lakers forward Pau Gasol has been working all summer to return from a knee procedure he underwent back in May. The treatment was an attempt to alleviate the tendinosis Pau was experiencing in his knees.

Gasol has been keeping us all up to date with his rehab progress via social media. Recently, he’s been upping his exercise program; Gasol has been doing everything from mountain biking to swimming, and now he can finally return to the court.

According to Gasol’s Instagram post, the Spaniard returned to the basketball court today:

 

I missed it so much… Making progress. #mirandoadelante #lookingahead

as a vet, he should know, not being getting prepared well enough in the offseason could lead to some bad times... pau is now on the track to resurrect his career if more healthy.  Not everyone can be dominate with injuries like a Kobe... i really think the injuries and just bad times in his career and personal life has effected Pau. I think he is on his way up
