Quiet then "Pau" when it counts
The big players get the huge bucks to entertain us and do something they love. Some get criticized for getting paid so much and not producing like they are expected to. Pau Gasol has been called soft many times before and he's been quoted as saying he hates it. In 2008 when the Lakers lost to the Celtics he took it very personal...The next year he stepped it up and changed that. This year he's been solid even after missing the first 15-20 games of the season. He's been averaging a double-double as of lately. Last night he had a quiet night but was loud and hit hard when it counted. Oh yeah and since when is 18 rebounds a quiet night? The Lakers move on to take on the Jazz next round. Bring the Jazz.
