The “Pau Gasol” two year, no 3-game losing streak record comes to an end

Just a note on what an unbelevable effect Pau Gasol has had on the Lakers since their acquisition of Gasol back in February of 2008.

In 217 games with Pau Gasol, the Lakers, for the first time, have lost 3 straight games.

This should be indicative of how fortunate the Lakers are to have Pau Gasol; despite the harsh criticism from the media and fans, at times.

    All good things must come to an end. Now the question is from here on out, how do they respond to this horrible road trip. Will this be the start of more “focus” and a “willingness” to put forth the effort? As far as I know, I only see one guy out there putting out the effort and that is RON ARTEST.

    Keep in mind Gasol is averaging MORE rebounds and MORE blocks than last year.

    GIVE THE BALL TO GASOL MORE. FOR GET ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE EXCEPT KOBE. GASOL NEEDS MORE TOUCHES. HE CAN CREATE ANY SHOT DOWN LOW

      Tell that to Kobe. Good Luck on that one.
