Pau Gasol shouldn't even be ahead of other recent All-Star power forwards such as Chris Webber (I'd take Webber over Gasol in a heart beat). I'd take Shawn Kemp over Gasol too.
Get back to me when any of those needledicks are the best players on a NBA finals champion like Gasol was in 2010.
Frankly I'm disgusted that Gasol wasn't higher.
