Except Gasoft, he is done. If he repeats his most recent performance, If I was Mitch Kupchak I would be prepared trade him for 2 slices of pizza

Bandwagon fans at their best. Man were not moving Pau so stop talking about it. He's a dying breed in todays game . Its very few back to the basket bigs that can turn and face up and has that passing ability. Its still early in the season and I'm not giving up on a top 5 PF still in the NBA

People who think any other NBA team is willing to give away a decent talent for Gasol are very delusional. Only way it works is if Mitch works some crazy magic, but in a fair trade we wouldn't like what we got back for him.

Yea, we should run a single double for Dwight constantly, imagine the 3 point shots...

Pau needs to shoot the ball a lot better. 40% from the floor for a big isn't cutting it. That's Demarcus Cousins territory. Stop it, pau. Stop it.

Other than his FG% I don't see anything wrong with how Pau is playing, the second he starts shooting over 50% again there will be people talking about having his jersey retired :lol:

I wonder when Dwight shoots a 3 will he get benched immediately like Bynum did last year?

Part of that is he sets up from like 15 ft out on the vast majority of his possessions. Jordan Hill comes in and he's still out there. Forget SG, Metta should slide to the 4 for stretches and let Pau operate inside for awhile.

Although I will say Pau has lost any hops he barely had, which doesn't help down there. But really, the guys has played the majority of his career at the 5. Including the last few years since Bynum was always hurt.

Would've been some historical shi.t, lol

I honestly couldn't care less if he hits sky hooks blindfolded, the guy needs to:

- move his feet on D
- really contest shots
- box out
- rebound the friggin ball

He is been way subpar defensively so far.
