Gasol a bit sore; hamstring is fine

Good news on how Pau is feeling!

Picture 1Hoopsworld: (Pau) Gasol is experiencing soreness again.

“A lot of it,” he said Friday, before quickly clarifying.

“Not in the hamstring. I mean overall, just from not playing for a while. There’s no workout compared to a basketball game.”

Gasol said the strained right hamstring that kept him out of the first 11 games felt fine, but his back and leg muscles were feeling the effects of playing 35 minutes Thursday against Chicago.

Despite Gasol’s 24-point, 13-rebound effort, Jackson couldn’t help himself when asked if Gasol informed him of any pain. “He always has something wrong with him,” Jackson said, smiling.

    I’m going to have to agree, that’s a terrible picture of Pau, and that’s not a gameface, only Kobe has gameface.

    Man I miss Ariza. His stupid agent deserves to get shot. Seriously, that man is a greedy, low life ass. He knew Ariza wanted to stay in LA, but he made Ariza go to Rockets for the same offer!

    I hate David Lee (agent not player). If you won a ring there Ariza, why leave?

    Well hopefully he comes back soon, while Kobe is still playing. Kobe, Ariza, Pau, Bynum, Fisher, Odom. Man that was the best team we had. Im not saying Artest isnt good, Im just saying I miss Ariza. I hate seeing him in a Rockets uniform.

    LISTEN TO THIS!

    A story from Ron Ron’s dad, he was talking to this reporter, Elie Seckbach, and he asked Ron Artest Sr. if there was anything that Ron Ron did that no one knows about.

    When Ron Ron was 7 years old, his dad’s nephew was over and he pissed off Ron Ron. So Ron Ron came with a hook and knocked him out. His dad said “RON! Next time you’re angry, do some pushups” So Ron Ron got down and did 40 pushups.

    Hahaha.
