    Class act. Zero defense - even worse than zero. Does board and block shots.

    Gets you those easy LMA type mid range baskets.

    Super smart player.

    Signed for $7M with Chicago, might not be more than that to get him now.

    Gasols DBPM was 4 or so the last couple years. I'm thinking a good defender as a center, bad defender as a PF.

    No, he's just bad. He's got virtually no mobility left.

    His defense looks like escorting his man to the basket.

    He played next to Noah and Taj to hide his deficiencies.

    I mean, depending on the contract I wouldn't be opposed to him, but not sure he is what we need.

    I have and will always love both games the Gasol's have. Just high bbiq players.
    Unfortunately at 36?? I'm not sure Pau is the best decision to be made for this team.

    Don't really like the idea at this point unless we are going all out for a title next year.

    Which we should... He's the perfect guy to bridge the gap for Meyers and Noah.

    Step 1: Get rid of Batum.

    Step 2: Bring in Pau.

    Step 3: Marc wants to play with big brother.

    Why go after Pau, we already have a big man coach in Kaman

    Portland would be foolish to pass on Gasol if he were willing to play off the bench for Kaman money. He'd fit the city, the roster, the style of play and mentor guys like Vonleh...I'd love to have him on the bench providing some scoring punch with the second unit..wouldn't have to play big minutes. He's already a gazillionaire. The city would love him.

    Batum plays for Charlotte, not Memphis
