Default Re: Rudy Gay..

does anyone think gasol is just taking advantage of the system in memphis? they do have a lot of assets and great players on that team...plus randolph has been a stud so taking a lot of the burden away from gasol. If we got gasol to a big contract (i dont see him coming here without one), will he continue to be the stud with the team we have or the ones we draft?

he is a star but i feel getting him in town with big expectations, like we did with Hedo, would only result in disappointment.

(obviously this is just a hypothetical point cuz i feel we have no real chance of getting gasol...just wondering)

He's not a "stud" though, if by stud you mean a guy who can lead a team and stand on his own. He's just a solid, above average piece at the 5 position and of course we would still be in search of our star player. But as Q has said before, Gasol/Davis would be a great starting point for us in the middle especially with the way the NBA has become very perimeter oriented over the years, and then we'd have to upgrade at any or all of the 1/2/3. Gasol + Davis + Superstar perimeter player + role players would be a pretty solid team. Or Gasol + Davis + multiple perimeter all-stars would be good as well. Point being, he'd be a piece of the puzzle rather than being the center piece (no pun intended).
