This one deserves it’s own entry. We heard Gasol’s postgame interview on our own local, KCAL9, and for those watching the New Jersey broadcast they got to hear Kobe’s thoughts… UPDATE: Video now available thakns to TACH @ LG.net:

NJN broadcaster lady: “Kobe, how nice a feeling is it knowing you can score 6 points and still have a victory?”

Kobe: “You have no idea, it makes the game so much easier. We had so many weapons before, and now we just added another huge one to the team… And when we get Big Bynum back… It’s… There’s a God… There is a God.

    Gasol & Bynum > Shaq & Amare

    Shaq is horrible for the Suns’ fast paced style of play. Shaq will not get any more rings. He’s done.

  • Ko-Pau19

    Yes Kobe, there IS a GOD! you better believe it! a great debut by our very own Pau Gasol with a double double. He was absoultely amazing and I bet its safe to say that we Lakers fans can get used to that! Anyways I wish Kobe a speedy recovery on his pinky and a great win by the Lakers! SI SI SI ME GUSTA! Preach it loud and proud KOBE! GOO LAKERS!!

  • KPLBF5LA

    Kobe was happy , dancing, singing, playing like a Kid. That’s how happy the Guy was. I believe in getting this ring this season..WOOOW….. Gasol Debut was fabulous. He haven’t really assimilate everything about the defense yet but He proved that he is a big threat offensively. My man Turiaf is going to have to sit on the bench for some times now. But it’s good though. Our bench looks strong and with Radman back. The weapons are even more scrarier for the other teams in the league

  • lakerz

    kobe was happy for the first time in a long time!

    can anyone put the video on youtube or something? i would love to see this!

  • Remy

    if everyone can step up like this, we are unstoppable

  • GotGasol.com

    Amen!!!

    And with the only good thing about the shaq trade to the suns, is the fact that marion will be out!!

    all they will have is an ugly canadian (thats gay) throwing a lob and fat ass shaq in the way of amare getting any dunks!

    great trade!

  • http://getgarnett.com lakeshow08

    Man when we get full strength it’s a rap for everyone. We have so many options now because Gasol can open up the paint more for Bynum power forwards have to respect his 15 footer. Odom can play his game now taking his man off the dribble posting up smaller Sf’s. Fish is the wily vet who wont turn the ball over alot and stroke the open three. Kobe well he’ll still be KB but now he has another weapon to get more of those MVP votes he didn’t get last year because of his supporting cast. You know the “makes his teamates better” b.s the so called experts always bring up never mentioning Kwame sucked the same goes for Cook and Smush, Vlad got hurt snowboarding, Luke was hurt, L.O hurt, Bynum young wasn’t aggresive, Farmar young didn’t know the offense several more unmentioned non factors. Now the young guns have grown up a little, Fish is back, the new Gasol’s arrived, maybe Odom at the 3 with less pressure to score plays as if he were a star to at least warrant the star he had on the back of his head for the first few months of the season. It’s a new day Laker Nation, before this deal we had hope now it’s how many can we get.

    This is how Lakers trade happened LMAO

    Mitch: Hey, Chris.
    Chris: Hey, Mitch.
    Mitch: I got a deal for you.
    Chris: Oh no.
    Mitch: I’m serious.
    Chris: No way. I heard about you.
    Mitch: You can’t lose.
    Chris: You’re always tricking other GMs. I’m not falling for this.
    Mitch: Okay, well let’s do a conference call then.
    Chris: Alright, I’m calling my buddy Rob Babcock to make sure everything’s cool.
    Mitch: Fine. (They call Rob Babcock 3-way.)
    Rob: Hello?
    Chris: Hey, Rob.
    Rob: Hey, what’s up Chris? Me and Vince Carter were just hitting the BBQ…. not! (They all laugh.) Seriously though, what’s going on pimps?
    Chris: Mitch is trying to pull a fast one on me!
    Mitch: I haven’t even told you the deal yet.
    Rob: Well, let him make the pitch. I’ll make sure all’s cool.
    Chris: Alright, let’s hear it.
    Mitch: Okay, here’s the deal. You give us Pau Gasol-
    Chris: No way!!
    Mitch: Let me finish speaking-
    Rob: You better get a couple first-round draft picks.
    Chris: Pau Gasol??
    Mitch: Hold on. You can’t lose. We’ll give you 2 first-round draft picks-
    Rob: Make the deal.
    Mitch: I’m not done yet. We’ll give you 2 first round draft picks…
    Chris: Okay…
    Mitch: You give us Pau Gasol…
    Chris: Okay…
    Mitch: We then give you Gasol back PLUS we give you 2 first round draft picks and a couple other players – you know, to make salaries work.
    Chris: Wait. Did you say you’d give us Gasol back?
    Mitch: Yeah. You give us Pau Gasol. Then we give you Gasol back, plus 2 first-rounders and a couple other players.
    Chris: Am I hearing you correctly? We give you Pau Gasol, then you give Gasol back plus a bunch of other players and picks?
    Mitch: Yes. (very quietly) Marc Gasol.
    Chris: What?
    Rob: Bless you.
    Mitch: So do we have a deal?
    Chris: Well if I trade you Gasol, then you give me Gasol back plus picks/players, how can I lose?
    Mitch: Exactly.
    Rob: This is sooo going to make up for that VC nonsense. I’m gonna be a GM again! Just make sure you tell everyone it was MY idea!!
    Chris: No problem.
    Mitch: Nice doing business with you. (He laughs to himself, then hangs up.)
    Chris: Wow. That Mitch Kupchak sure is a nice guy.
    Rob: Totally. Hey, you wanna stroll around for some poon-tang?
    Chris: You know it, Rad Bigco-
    Rob: Don’t say the nickname right now. I’ll lose my Mojo. I’ll meet you at that all-ages club in 45. Peace.

    LOL NICE ONE.

  • kobeftw

    Here is the video interview…

  • bc18

    thats funny in the interview when the girl was like “good to know” when kobe told her how he couldnt feel the ball…stupid lady wasnt even listening to what he said lol

  • Nabil

    Can we go 29-6 from here to the end of the regular season?
    That would give us 60 wins!!!!

  • aibarra03

    Did anyone notice that when kobe said “when we get bynum back…..” he paused then said “there is a GOD!” It seemed like he wanted to say something else like ….when we get bynum back its OVER!

  • lakerfan81

    “thats funny in the interview when the girl was like “good to know” when kobe told her how he couldnt feel the ball…stupid lady wasnt even listening to what he said lol”

    I am pretty sure she was being sarcastic when she said “good to know”.

    The x factor will be Kobe and the rest of the Lakers bench. The suns, even if they got Shaq, won’t have the bench to compete with the Lakers bench. The suns starting five would be nash, bell, shaq, amare, and hill and coming off the bench all they have is barbosa and old man grant hill (and maybe Brian Skinner when Shaq gets in foul trouble). The Lakers overall team and starting five is better.

    Speaking of fouls, when Shaq does get in foul trouble, then the Suns will truly regret trading for him, because they will be smaller than before and have less players than before.

    The suns are making are this trade out of sure desperation. When they get Shaq, they are making their team older over night and closing their window even faster – Nash, Shaq and Hill only have a year or two left in their legs.

    Kobe is a Laker for life after this interview.
    He knows that once Bynum is back this team will be unstoppable. We just need to stay healthy.
    Suns can get Shaq, but shaq will not be able to stop Gasol and Bynum playing in full force.
    Plus the Lakers bench is a powerhouse.

    We are in a good place folks. We just need to stay healthy.

    it’s about time that guy came around. where have you been?! lol but seriously, i think kb’s done with bickering with the FO. They’ve pretty much shown Kobe that they’re just as serious as he is about being in the championship hunt, and it seems to have parties on all sides happy.

    “I’ve been praying and praying for us to have a team that we can really be competitive with,” Bryant said. “It used to keep me up at night. I’m sleeping pretty good now.”
