Sorry Pau got hurt, but his absence makes very little difference. Dude was giving us next to nothing on either end of the floor. Nothing but matador defense. We'd probably be better off giving Clark Gasoft's minutes.

I will say this for the 5th time or so: I guarantee if you'd been hit by the same elbow in the same spot in the same situation you'd still be feeling it too. This is a strong seven foot man's elbow pointed directly at a danger zone for concussions.

I have no trouble believing he's in a lot of pain.



Pau gets in a lot of pain just from people criticizing him...so i guess you're right...what more from an actual contact play


and no, ive never been elbowed in the nose but i've gotten it broken from a straight right hand by a bon-a-fide cruiserweight in the gym...i was extremely dazed the rest of the day and the next day...it didn't take me more than a week, i know that much

Now come on Real. You know we fans are much tougher than these wussy basketball players. Especially guys like Pau. Most of us would of put some skin glue on our noses, took a tylonal and been back the next game.
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.

With Dwight out this will be the perfect time for Pau to prove himself he still one of the top 5 center in the league, it's time for Pau to get all the touches in the post and dominate inside, Go PAU !

I think you need an update on some things. Mainly who's playing and who's not. :man10:

What other castoff in the league (Hill, Clark) is going to come on this team and do Pau's job better than him?

Send him to some team that doesn't compete, like the Cats... he'll have no pressure there. Get us some youth and athleticism back.

uh no, there's a new protocol for concussions now and a private Dr. access players right when it happens and these Dr's also sign off on them playing. These Dr's have no vested interest from the team to allow players to play before they're ready.

uh yes they do :man10:

The vast, vast majority of players fake their symptoms, they fake their responses, and there's no such thing as impartial when you're talking about tens of millions of dollars at stake for a guy sitting out.

how do you fake symptoms? These Dr. are not paid by the team, they look out for the players safety, these Dr. dont let players come back early at all and I've seen players get hit and litteraly knocked out of a game and Dr. cleared them to play the next week.

Sorry, fake your healh and you fake your initial tests. They test everyone's normal state of health at the start of the season, you fake that test and later in the season you're golden.

Gasol is obviously not faking his health, I wish him well in his recovery because health should always come first. However, we are proving that we have enough depth with Jamison/Clark (when Dwight is in the line-up) & perhaps trading him for even more depth would be out best option.

There is no reason that Pau doesn't want to play the ballgame. Even in Shaq's case, he just wants to miss 15 games per season. :man10:

Is it wrong that I don't want him to come back? I don't care about his talent, offensive ability, passing ability, height, length, whatever. Offense is not our problem, defense and effort/energy are. Pau IMO doesn't have hunger or passion anymore, so I'd rather play young guys hungry to get wins over Pau even if they're unproven and inconsistent, because Pau has become wildly inconsistent himself. Ya Nash said a lot of good about him, what he CAN do, but to me it's about what he WANTS to do, and I don't see a lot of want. Really I'd like to see him traded for some decent young players hungry to win and eager to play hard.
