Default Pau Gasol being trash is easily explainable

he's tired of carrying Kobe. when Dwight and Nash arrived, that weight was just too much. esp considering Dwight weighs 265 lbs + Nash's 178 lbs. that's too heavy even for Gasol.

Gasol carrying Kobe? Is this starting to become an accepted belief on this site? I understand that you started watching basketball after the decision but damn, you are honestly hallucinating if you think that Gasol "carried" the team. He was a very important and crucial piece of those teams, but carry them? Carrying a team is Jason Kidd bringing the Nets to the Finals, or Lebron bringing the Cavs to the finals...

Interesting stat. While Gasol isn't playing well (obvious), he isn's being used the right way.
A team with no real center should sign him.
A trade for Josh Smith and fillers would work for both teams, but I guess Smith's expiring contract is more valuable for the Hawks now.

I think Atlanta's goal is to have as much cap space as possible for this summer. I don't think they will clog it up, even for Gasol. That's a $20 million cap hit.

They are probably going to pitch Howard and Paul to both come to Atlanta.....

It's not going to take much of a pitch if the Lakers don't get better...

The only hope for there not being an Atlanta super team, wow that's one ****ed up sentence, is the Clippers succeeding this year. Of course that's if the Lakers don't start playing better I mean, which I fully expect them to, but injuries can happen.

Makes a lot of sense...Teague has been great this year and is not liked by Drew. They have assets in those two that could be used in a sign&trade. Or could be traded for assets if Paul/Howard are signed outright.


If Gasol lasts the season in LA and Howard decides he wants out (I doubt it) I could see the value in the Lakers doing a sign&trade for Horford, who would be a great fit for Gasol and can also run the floor so well.

The Hawks don't need to do a sign-and-trade. They can sign Howard and Paul outright. Why give Horford away?

Pau has slowly declined into a softer perimeter oriented living and dying about his short J being on or off game to game. his passing is still decent for a post player but overrated to a degree since he can be awful passing some nights. dude is not consistent at all, and its like he's in denial his low post game is non existent. i guess having Bynum for so long receded his low post game to where it is now and i can't see it ever coming back with how soft he plays these days. sad.

So you're speculating he is doing a working strike. I could see that, and it's better than the more logical he sucks explaination.
