Plus he has provided us with scoring as necessary. Props to Pau. Just imagine if that trade never happened where we'd be right now.


Howard was phenomenal against Cleveland... Then again he was checked by the slow footed Ilgauskas, the physically overmatched Varejao or the glacially fast Ben Wallace. The last two were also not the low post scoring threats where Howard have to expend energy on the defensive end. Howard now cannot take breaks on defense...must now play straight up with his defensive assignments. Howard while a great weakside help defender is really not ALL THAT on an individual basis.

It's a shame that a game so plenty of perfect plays and good choices was stained by this moron named Gasol...
oh wait! Gasol 0 turn overs and Howard & Kobe both 7 (3 in the crunch time) !!!... :man4: :man11:
And he has outplayed the new Shaq when everyone said here, as always, he going to be annihilated

You've gotta be kidding, right? it was the 3rd quarter of game 2 before Howard got his first dunk.

Gasol is playing him better then anyone this year. HUGE reason why we're up 2 - 0.

I've always respected your posts in the past......... until this last one.

+1 definitely. Gasol did a great job on defense last night and the first game as well. There was about a 4 minutes stretch when both he and Bynum in the fourth were a step slow on the pick and roll recovery, but the rotations were almost flawless for the rest of the game, and Pau's man defense and ball denial was truly amazing considering he's been labeled soft and weak.

Pau has a few lapses here and there on his help D, but gotta give the guy props on his D on Howard. With Drew playing like a complete moron, this series could've been a disaster if it wasn't for Pau's man to man D. Give the freakin guy some credit.

While you're at it, give Bynum some credit too. How can he have any impact on this game when he's not allowed to establish any type of position on his post defense? At least 2 of his fouls last night were called on him simply for trying to work Howard in the post. It's called defensive position, and he isn't allowed to have any. Some of his fouls are bad ones, but if he's not allowed to get into a rhythm, how can he affect a game?

If Pau keeps this up, especially on defense, nothing can stop us.

Usually I'd be with you but Drew didn't help himself AT ALL last night. The 1st foul was BS, but that should've told him how tight the game was gonna be called. He needs to adjust and that's something he's not good at. He can't commit dumb fouls when he knows he's going to battle with Dwight down low. The foul where he reached in on a guard on the break drove me crazy. Then he plowed a screener over for his 5th. Just dumb fouls.

Pau saved the game for us. Lee didn't "just" miss the alleyoop. Pau's "challenge" had a big part. Lee threw it to avoid the block.

This is why effort and "never say die" challenges on the defensive end is important. Something the lakers are finally starting to do and realize. Gotta give props to LO for not giving up and blocking reddick's layup too.

Pau is growing a pair in the finals, yesterday he was huge. And he is becoming a very important reference in this team.

For those who like the guy, maybe you will enjoy this video(the firs 72 sec are so epic). It is about his early years in the NBA , he was not a Laker yet :man11:, but you can see his evolution throught the years.


Cheers.

Some posters here were discussing trades involving Pau. I think that would be the worst decision in the history of the LA Lakers.

Bynum's presence has been a big factor in Gasol's play. Steve Smith of NBA TV had a good assessment of his play last year where the whole "soft" stigma started. Gasol having to play max minutes at the 5 which he was not physically equipped to do would start out fast but fade down the stretch. Why? No one was there to relieve him. Odom's uneven play did not help matters either. Turiaf did not even see the floor much. That brutal front line of ****** with Garnett, Perkins and Brown was just too much for ONE man to contend with the entire game not to mention playing out of position.

Pau was entirely clutch last night. Let's not forget, this guy is the reason we're here now two years in a row. By that I'm not diminishing Kobe Bryant's role. We wouldn't be here without him either of course. Kobe is the stuff. But . . . the addition of Gasol got us to the championship two years running. Now let's finish it off!!!
