Default Re: What happened to you Gasol?

I think he just wore down as the playoffs went on, he had never won a playoff series before this season, that combined with the fierce pounding that Utah gave him, beating him down with Boozer, Okur, Milsap and their bigs giving him hard contact the whole game.......I don't think he was ever the same the rest of the playoffs and finals.......with a few exceptions, he just looked DONE.

I would have to defend Gasol on this one.

He's not that light and quick off his feet to start with. He has gotten a bit slower than during his earlier years but I would say he's much more polished now.

Hook shots on both hands, nice length, nice passing, completely changed his once awful jumper, and can put it on the floor.

Aside from the dunk on K.G. and the Dunk on Yi on the WBCs, I haven't seen Gasol take it to someone. He usually dunks only on breakaways.

People forget that he was facing a much bigger Perkins and DPOY Garnett in the finals. He is also out of position playing Center, when he's played PF his whole career.
