Some good news on Pau Gasol!

L.A. Times: Finally some good news for the Lakers in regards to a hamstring and Pau Gasol.

“He worked pain-free today,” Coach Phil Jackson said Wednesday. “So that’s nice to know.”

    how can someone sit out when a guy on your team is playing through broken fingers, hyper extended knees, elbow problems………Imagine if Paul had these issues he would be out for 8 weeks! No Carazon del Español!

      didnt we just do this in the shoutbox . . . chris paul doesnt play for the lakers and neither does Paul Pierce or Paul Pierce.

      Now, assuming u reference PAU, ur suggestion is that PAU be “the man” and risk further injury so that we can get some wins during reg season at the expense of PO?
