Don't just look at the stats watched the game !

Pau played was weak and passive, offensively as well as defensively

He's better than 90% of the power forwards in the NBA, and if it weren't for him, the Lakers would not have won 2 championships. Everyone turned on him like he's Luke freaking Walton. Let's get back to reality check that the Lakers aren't going to win the big one for a while with Kobe aging and possibly Howard might not come back. Let's not forget D'antoni as our coach.

There goes his trade value, except his value as an expiring.

Pau played some of the worst defense I've ever seen last night... probably the most worthless triple double in history.

Unless Pau can be used to acquire a no-brainer superstar, it would probably make more sense just to keep him and let him walk in 2014.

Pau Considering Treatment In Germany On Knee In Offseason

Pau Considering Treatment In Germany On Knee In Offseason

Image

Posted on April 27, 2013 by Mark Medina

This underachieving season has worn on Pau Gasol in every way imaginable.

In what he described as a “roller coaster,” Gasol navigated plenty of highs and lows. He faced reduced offensive role under Mike D’Antoni’s system. The Lakers coach even featured Gasol as a reserve for six games. Of course, Gasol also faces a 0-3 deficit in the Lakers’ first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs and an uncertain offseason.

But Gasol said he’s experienced the most frustration nursing never-endining injuries including knee tendinitis, a concussion and plantar fascia in his right foot, ailments that sidelined him for a total of 33 games. Even if he’s suiting up Sunday for Game 4 against the Spurs, Gasol said he’s far from healthy. So much that he said he will explore various non-surgical procedures to treat the knee tendonosis in both of his knees.

“It’s something I’ve dealt with all year, but I have to do something to regenerate the tissue,” Gasol said, “so I don’t have to play with this pain.”

Kobe Bryant went to Germany two years ago to have a derivation of the platelet-rich plasma procedure on his right knee, which entailed involves blood being taken from the patient and isolating the components in hopes of accelerating the healing process and relieving pain. Would Gasol go to Germany, too?

“I’ll go to wherever I need to go,” Gasol said. “It’s a possibility.”

Gasol said the tendonosis in both of his knees has created dead tissue and inflammation with most of the pain reserved for his left leg. Unfortunately for Gasol, he primarily uses that leg to jump when he’s post position. Although he has healed from the plantar fascia enough to return to the lineup in late March, Gasol said the pain in his right foot “is still bothering me.”

“It has been limiting but at the same time, I’ve been performing pretty well,” said Gasol, who has averaged 17.5 points on 51.3 percent shooting in the last eight regular season games in April. “I want to continue to fight and continue to leave it out there on the floor.”

Gasol has had mixed success though.

Through three games in the Lakers’ first-round series against the Spurs, Gasol has averaged 13.3 points on only 42.5 percent shooting. He’s also largely struggled guarding Spurs forward Tim Duncan, who’s averaged 19.7 points on 53.1 percent shooting in the postseason against the Lakers.

“It’s difficult, but nothing has been easy this year,” Gasol said. “I wouldn’t expect anything less.”

I don't give a rats !@# about your !@#$%% knees... don't come out crying about it after you've shown us some of the worst defensive effort in recent memory. You're just making excuses.

Kobe played through plenty of !@$% and didn't complain about it.

He's doing this on purpose ... he obviously doesn't want to leave regardless of what he has been saying for some time about his role

1) He knows Kobe has his back
2) He's aware the soft medias in LA will never call his poor play out and will continue to pull off the system excuse card .
3) The focus is and will remain on Kobe/D12

He has nothing to gain by going to a lesser team on which he will have more pressure to perform as a 1st/2nd option and on which his huge salary will be talked about each time he doesn't play well.

Life is good in LA , he has a pass for his poor play since May 2011

This is my favorite thing about Pau in recent years....

I need the ball more, I need more touches, I'm not being used right, I want more minutes....

(1 week later)

Well I'm playing through this injury and this is bothering me, but I'm going out there and playing as hard as I can.

(1 week later)

I'm not happy with my role, I need more minutes, touches...etc..

(1 week later)

These injuries are really limiting my game and what I can do

Shooting 43%, playing zero defense, while getting abused by someone 5 years older than him. Box score says one thing, watching him in the actual game says another.

Disclaimer: not necessarily addressing the entirety of my post towards you, Doc.

Playing with plantar fasciitis and tendonitis...I guess I feel differently and appreciate the effort.

But I do understand why everybody wants to trade him...I'm just not sure why people hate on him so much.

I would rather appreciate what Timmy does and be in awe of what he can do at his age, than fault Pau for not being able to do the same. One just broke down quicker...but then again, maybe the way Pop has played him over the years can attribute to that. :man12:

Anyways, I guess do the ends justify the means?

So the masses want him traded cause the production he's putting out isn't worth 19M. And with that crowd, I can agree with.

I appreciate what Pau does off and on the court. But he's breaking down...and his production isn't for a lack of effort.

You want to trade his 19M for an infuse of youth and I totally get that and agree. But the unnecessary hate this guy gets is baffling.

I do believe its going to be hard to trade the guy in this landscape, but I do understand why fans want to trade him. However, if he addresses his injuries and comes back healthy, I'm totally fine with him remaining on the roster and expiring next summer.
