So that's the secret, eh? Sit him out for 6 weeks and he's good to go. :jam2:

i guess playing year around basketball for 5 years isn't a good idea, especially for a 7footer?

Seriously these last two games are the best I remember seeing him play since our Championship run... He's REALLY making me think about whether or not he can be effective with Dwight. If we had an athletic back-court to pair with him and Dwight I'd actually consider keeping him this summer...

He can average a triple double with Dwight and Kobe.

maybe by some miracle we get an athletic 3 and a defensive minded younger PG we could still manage w/o trading Pau?

I don't see it.. unless we can trade World Peace for something and get lucky with the mini-MLE this summer.

And even if that's true, the Lakers would be on the hook for over 100 million again in salary... could they handle that?

I'd there was a way to keep Pau and upgrade at SF and add athleticism overall I would do it, but it doesn't seem possible, and Pau still makes too much to gamble on IF he keeps this up. We are wining against bad teams, but against the top teams with speed and athleticism the 2 7 footers thing doesn't seem to work anymore. Pau with an offseason NOT playing for Spain and getting rest though, I think that would be a different guy.

This Pau is definitely making me hopeful that we can get a really legitimate return for him in the off-season. I'm not sold that there's many PFs that can do what he's doing with Dwight right now...

By the way, this Pau is EXACTLY what we all envisioned at the start of the season isn't it? The absolutely perfect pivot big at the top of the key? Someone with the talent to find the open man on any given possession from inside?

He was the glue tonight no doubt about it. Games like this make you believe anything is possible as long as we're in the playoffs.

He's in the best shape we've seen from a while ... being able to perform well on a b2b after playing 39 min the night before is a great surprise from Pau

Where's KareemTheGreat? He is to Pau what odom1year is to Kobe but he doesn't hide it with an agenda, just proudly hates his guts and wishes bad things for him until he's gone. :bricks:

We ran it last year with Bynum too. We called it KGB, because it started with a Kobe P&R (Pau was the screener) and a lob from Pau to Bynum.
I always felt we should run it more often, especially in crunch time, since it has so much potential for each guy involved, and can even open up shots for shooters if extra defenders help out.
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.

I think it's quite a bit more than 5 years.

If you look at Pau's career, he has taken just three summers off from international competition with the Spanish national team since 1997:

1998 - FIBA Europe under 18 champion
1999 - FIBA world under 19 champion
2000 - DNP - didn't make Olympic team
2001 - Eurobasket - 3rd
2002 - FIBA World Championship - 5th
2003 - Eurobasket - 2nd
2004 - Olympics - 7th
2005 - DNP - rehab'ing injured knee
2006 - FIBA World Championship - 1st
2007 - Eurobasket - 2nd
2008 - Olympics - 2nd
2009 - Eurobasket - 1st
2010 - DNP - this followed 3 straight years in the NBA Finals
2011 - Eurobasket - 1st
2012 - Olympics - 2nd

Yeah I'd say it's gotten to him... that plantar fasciitis is a typical overuse injury...
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Real test for Pau is gonna be if/when we make the playoffs. He has a lot of making up to do. I don't care what he's done in the last few games. If he fails again in the playoffs this year...Good bye
