McHale is easily a top 5 PF of all time. Pau is easily not. Don't know why this is even a thread.

McHale, Jabbar, Wilt and Hakeem were the four greatest, most skilled post scorers in the history of the nba.

Pau is a mentally weak marshmallow puff.

And....Charles Barkley

And Gasol Does Not Look Good Cause of Bryant. He is an All Star and HOFer aswell.

Pau Gasol was better as a big man compared to his competition than Kevin McHale.

Having Pau Gasol on your team in this era is a bigger advantage than having Kevin McHale on your team in the 80's.

McHale vs Dirk is probably a closer comparison. While McHale's prime was relatively short, you could make the case he was better than dirk's best couple years. More efficient certainly, a far better defender certainly, similar in terms of scoring volume and rebounding, but also a clearly worse passer (or more accurately a far less willing passer who had similar capabilities)
As for the Gasol and McHale comparison, there just isn't much of one. Gasol is the better passer, but pales in comparison in most other places. I don't see a situation where Gasol could be more impactful on his teams W-L record then McHale.

When Gasol posts up, if he even posts up, it is not referred to as the torture chamber, and lol @ miamithrice's post saying Gasol was the best player on the 2010 team subtly

Having McHale > having Gasol (in any era)
