Default Luis Scola is the next Pau Gasol

2 breakout games in a row for the rookie... his playing style reminds me alot of Pau when he first came into the league... his european playing style compliments Yao... and if he can play better defence and hustle for more boards, he might very well be the final piece to Houston's playoff run... this guy is a gem and his mid-range game is ... kudos!

Luis Scola is an awesome player, he has been one of the best Euroleague player for years.

I told months ago both Scola and Navarro would be so good additions to their team, and both of them are begiinig to show that.

But Scola has still to improve to be like Gasol... and they are more or les same age.

Let's not over hype the kid. Aside from these two games, he hasn't really done much. Mainly plauged by foul trouble but I hope he can keep it up. Having Chuck Hayes out there hurts Yao because they always leave Chuck to double up on Yao. Insert Scola and his offensive talents, teams have to respect the 4 position now.

Well, last year people were complaining about our PF situation being crap, and in the summer praised the PG position as being set, but now it seems that our PF situation is set now that Scola is the next Gasol, but Rafer+James+Francis = Larry Hughes.

Gasol was a power player/dunker his rookie year, like #1 or 2 in dunks that year.

Have not seen Scola dunk this year, out of the 20 FGs he made over the last 2 games, did not see any dunks.

Scola is more like a shorter Vlade Divac, a crafty player.

I still have no idea why the Spurs made that deal with us. From what I read they said it was to free up money. They basically gave him to us for free (plus jackie butler) as the guy we traded to get Scola won't return to the NBA. My theory is that Dennis Lindsey, who worked with the Rockets Front Office last year and is now working with the Spurs, is our Spy and was the head behind this deal.

Also, does anyone want to mention that Scola is about two months older than Gasol?

Scola is almost 28. He is already in his prime with a low ceiling. He is not and will never be in the same league as Pau.

Is he gasol? No, but he is great. The only thing that I have liked about the last two losses is that Scola was great in both of them.
