So there was absolutely nothing the Bulls would give up in an S&T?

Thank you Pau. Aside from Shaq and Kobe, best Laker since Showtime

Shame Pau didn't get the same treatment that Howard did when Pau did so much more

Thanx for everything Pau. Too bad you're going to be a Bull and not a Spur. Wish you the best.

Though he will likely never read this, I must thank Pau for the contributions that he did provide to the Lakers. His defense fell off, but Gasol was a player who was loyal to his squad. He was a dynamic duo with Kobe when the Lakers were in the finals, and he unquestionably contributed to some of the rings that we won. When he and Kobe were on the same page, it was something magical to watch.

 

Even if you don't appreciate Gasol on the court, his character off the court was an example that I will not soon forget. Gasol is just a nice dude, which sometimes might be a flaw on the hardwood. But when all is said and done, I really appreciate Gasol's services and what he helped bring to the Lakers at his peak.

 

All things must come to an end. Even so, I will always cherish the memories. Take care, Gasol.

Really sad. Poor Pau. Really gonna miss him. I don't think it will feel quite the same w/o Kobe and Pau on the floor together.

Like I said when I made that Pau Gasol trade/dicussion thread( yes I want my credit ), I love Pau. He will always be one of my favorite players, but he should have been gone a long time ago. No disrepect, he just didn't fit/belong here anymore.

Good thing he went to my other favorite team ( my hometown team, always love me some bulls ) so I can still cheer for him and hope him the highest amount of success ( time to bring the trophy home to Chicago! ).

With that said, I fully expect to be at a NBA Championship parade next season in Chicago.

Pau might go down as my favorite Laker in my generation, even over Kobe.

Damn. The feels are strong with this one.

 

He's so much more likable than Shaq though.
