Marc or Pau?



1) pau - better touch, speed, midrange game. he lacks the strength of his brother, but he'd still get his.

2) odd question. pau is presently at his peak - his game is far more refined than marc's - whereas marc is on the up and up. marc will be lucky to average the same scoring numbers as his brother, but is potentially a much better rebounder and defender

3) pau - great passer, nice and smooth post game.

4) hmmmm. maybe marc? younger, could be a nice anchor in the post. big bulky presence down low.

5) presently pau by quite a bit.

My answers:




1) Who would win one on one? Marc would, I think.
2) Who has more potential? Pau.
3) Who would you want on the current team you root for? Pau. Marc is worse than Bynum.
4) Who would you start a franchise with? Marc, at this point. Younger and plays C a rare position. I can find good enough PFs.
5) Who is the better basketball player? Pau is

Default Re: The Gasols head to head. A few questions inside.

1- Don't know and don't really care.
2- Pau doesn't really have any potential to get better but he has some potential to win alot more rings at the moment. Marc Gasol is going to improve more tho.
3- Pau.
4- Pau. Even tho Marc is younger I seriously doubt he becomes any better than Pau and it's not like Pau is really old to begin with.
5- Pau. At this point it's not even arguable.

Marc should be kissing Rudy Gay's and OJ Mayo's A$$ every night. They make him. Teams can't double on Marc because that would leave Mayo and Gay open for 3 after 3 after 3. They play Marc straight up and thats how he punishes them.

Mayo is not that good, sorry to burst your bubble. better than Gay but not as good as advertised and not even as good as I thought he would be. If anything he has been a disappointment to me.

1) Who would win one on one? Pau, I think
2) Who has more potential? Marc
3) Who would you want on the current team you root for? Marc (we need a better rebounding C than JO, SO BADLY!)
4) Who would you start a franchise with? Pau
5) Who is the better basketball player? Pau

I think Marc will go on to become a top player in the NBA, he's a little raw and lacks the finesse of Pau but if he can keep improving with experience over the next 2 seasons, he'll be a great player.

As for starting a franchise, I'd pick Pau, because you know exactly what you're getting. Marc is a mixture of ability and potential, and I'd rather start a franchise with a dead cert 20/10 guy, even if he's older.

O cause having Kobe on your team with players like Ron Artest and Lamar Odom and Bynum dosen't let Pau play straight up

Paul Gasol > Marc Gasol

But as a Cavaliers fan I think Gasol would be the perfect starting Center for our team because he's very unselfish, great fundamental skills, and he's also younger than Pau Gasol.
