Pau played very well today. If he can continue that he'll remain a Laker.

His post passing is amazing.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

He bailed out Kobe on the same play too, no one else was running toward the ball.
Yeah IMO to be fair that wasn't really Kobe's or Pau's fault. They didn't plan that sequence very well and no one else came to get the ball from Kobe.

Pau played a very good game on both ends of the floor. Great to see we're exploiting that hi-lo action (Pau to Dwight) off the Kobe/Pau P&R.

I don't know if this is done for comedic purpose of what but i've never understand why fans have to belittle players on their team.. it's not like the guy is slacking off in practice or not giving it his all.. anybody who's played team sports knows how hard it is to really get out there.. especially if you were never that talented to begin with.. means you'll just have to work harder than everyone else.

I know it harsh but that's life man. When you are an athlete or any other celebrity everything you do gets analyzed under the microscope. It just comes with the territory.

I definitely agree with this. But what is going on with Ebanks? Is he going to get cut - will he play? Seems like he's in limbo. I wish we would give up this Jamison at 3 experiment.

So funny how Horry calls him Paul. Same thing with Jamison. And Steve Smith. I'm sure there are a few others. Why can't people get his name right?

Hill's back is acting up again from the Clipper game I assume. If he were completely healthy, I too would like to see him with more time. It will save Gasol from wear and tear that will accumulate as the season goes.

Good game. some lazy and soft moments, but some good passes and rebounds.

But that pass to kobe was stupid. He was just throwing up a prayer. and Why??? It is a one point game at that point and that could have led to a game ending layup for the Nets.

Didn't he learn anything from the SA loss??? CALL TIME OUT!!! Gasol has ALWAYS been a panick-type player in the closing seconds.

Add Kenny Smith to that list... Bryant already went out of his way to correct that on national TV when they appeared on Kimmel in 2009.

Get this trash off the team. He's too inconsistent (having two great games and then following it up with this, there are many examples) and he plays NO DEFENSE. :mad1:

2 great games and a bad game isnt an indication of being inconsistent. If he did that for the entire season, I'd be happy with that ratio as the 4th best player on the team ( Nash being healthy ).

That being said, he wasnt good tonight...back to back for an aging, agile-less big man isnt a recipe for good performances I guess.

Put him in a pick and roll and you'll get a bucket every time. Getting beat by Jason Thompson, and routinely by Cousins.

Garbage.

Gasol is a gutless pansy who only plays hard when he's in the mood (e.g., when it's the Olympics.)

Pau is at Troy Murphy level defensively. Opposing teams are going to whoever he's guarding, again and again, getting buckets.
His D alone is argument enough for him to be traded. Not saying I want that to happen, I'm just saying it would be completely understandable. Not worth 19M. Not even close. But other teams know that, and we're gonna get s*** players, so I rather just keep him and not F up the chemistry even more. Of course, if the right deal comes along, PULL THE TRIGGER.
