But he simply is not an elite player, just having one of those amazing years. Ala Channing Frye, Andrew Bogut, JR Smith, Derrick Fisher etc.
Scrub going off. Good for him. He will get paid due to this series.
Defensively I actually think lopez is very good and underrated. Offensively yeah he's a scrub, scoring on gasol who looks 50 years old doesn't impress me. At this point in his career Gasol is a good paint defender but that's it, pretty much equal with 2000 Sabonis.
I agree regarding defensively. Lopez gave a lot on that end of which I didn’t expect. Offensively it was a lifts out performance that I do not believe should ever happen again. But unfortunately for Raps the rest of the Bucks should have better games.
As for Gasol he’s old as dirt but still a great defender. Just Lopez may be a bad matchup for him. Which is weird bc he shut down Vucicek and Embid.
