Gasol got benched during the Memphis game last week and then the chatter started.
Pau told reporters that he wanted more touches in the paint, and the lack of them, is throwing his game off.
Well he got them against the Mavs and the Lakers pulled off an impressive win. Pau later told reporters that he has been dealing with knee tendinitis all month and is trying his best to play through it.
“It’s something that has been lingering since this preseason. I’ve been dealing with it the best I can…” - Pau Gasol
Rumors have been circulating about trading Pau, perhaps this is an attempt for him to buy time?
