Default ☆Official Pau Gasol Thread: Pau Gasol's contract year

Given that Kobe will be out to start the season, Dwight's exit making him the featured big on our team, and the fact that he is a great and willing passer surrounded by good shooters this year, I think he has a legitimate shot of having an MVP season this year.

0% MVP but def poised for a big comeback year. Healthy and playing his natural role. He is going to have the ball ran through him, just how he likes it.

there's a few guys in his way of winning an MVP award

It's really difficult to run the offense through Gasol in Antoni's jack'em up from the perimeter small ball system in fact Gasol has bought into his scheme by not demanding the ball in the post enough maybe once or twice a game. It's apparent how Pau is now accustomed to chucking up majority of his shots from the perimeter.

I don't know if it's all on Antoni orchestrating or the fact Gasol has become Gasoft coz he's not looking like the old Pau during the championship years! Reasonably understanding that last year because of Howard's presence in the post but what's his excuse for not demanding the ball in the post this year? I'm convinced all Antoni can mustard is a outside jack'em up perimeter game and a no post low post during non-existence inside game.Of course Antoni hasn't proven yet nor will he anytime soon that he will start using the D that's why it's still missing in his name.

“This year hasn’t been ideal, certain things are not ideal for me, but that’s not going to change any time soon,” he said.

Any thoughts, DK?

Default Re: [Official Pau Gasol Thread] Pau poised for MVP

I've been knocking Pau since last year or shall we say since when Antoni took over at the helm Pau has not look like the old Pau of championship years. Coincidentally all along it was Antoni's perimeter offense that's keeping Pau from posting up and his average has gone down but Antoni says otherwise that Pau's lack of intensity is keeping him from diving to the basket hmmn? Now according to bleachers report Pau is finally voicing his opinion.
