Que pasa big man. Guy got a fat contract and didn't care after that. Oh, and the beard may have had something to do with it.

I could find a video of Dwight Howard hitting a 3. Does that mean he should be a 3-point shooter? Power isn't everyones game style and finesse often works just as well.

He has gradually lost toughness throughout his NBA career. Who knows, maybe all those first round sweeps sucked his balls away to another planet.

can someone explain to me why gasol is soft?

he bangs more than kg, oneal, bosh, boozer...

I thought "soft" meant you shy away from attacking the rim and shoot jumpers

Gasol definitly attacks the rim. There were a few plays in the finals when Gasol took it at KG with so much power it was quite a turn on. Whilst most of KG's power moves came from being open, otherwise he just shot jumpers. People call Gasol soft though, because he doesn't throw it down every time he goes to the basket like Howard, Amare, Lebron.

Gasol usually attacks the rim but uses a lot of finger rolls and jump hooks instead of going for the dunk. imo, i only consider him soft defensively. He hates banging bodies on defense. Also add to the fact that fiba basketball involves a lot of flopping and acting. Once you get used to it, its hard to change.

Yes, I'm a gay...I mean...guy.

Though I don't see what that has to do with anything.

Gasol can PLAY manly, but his reactions and attitude are quite womanly..hence the label SOFT

I believe the triangle offense is geared for the bigs to be able passers and have more of a midrange game (ie Luc Longley)
