Gasol: Give Me More Shots

Frustrated now? Just wait until Bynum makes his return, Pau: “The Lakers failed to take full advantage of a torrid shooting night from Pau Gasol for a second straight game. Two nights after he made all 10 first-half shots against Dallas but only attempted three more after the break, Gasol made six of seven in the first half against Philadelphia yet finished just 9-for-12. ‘I’m shooting really well right now, but I wish I could just get a couple more looks even if the percentage goes down a little,’ Gasol said. ‘Obviously they come and they try to double, but let them keep coming. That means somebody else is open and somebody gets a wide-open shot.’”

    pau is better than bynum on offense even when he returns he needs to get more shots

    the beginning of the end? The celtics don’t have issues like this, and they have Marbury.

    Marbury and Eddie House hate each other.

    not suprising.
    Gasol leaving soon. only to become nothing like he was before he entered.

    Maybe he isn’t that unselfish after all…

  • Jackie Moon

    Pau is good.

    I agree with him. Kobe was in foul touble all night and by the time he came back in the 4th he was out of rhythm, and he shot the Lakers out of the game.

    i didnt see last night’s game but it was outrageous in the dallas game. i know kobe said that they didnt want to force it but dude was not even getting touches down low. its not like they were doubling him BEFORE the pass.

    Pau deserves the ball. He’s not being selfish, he’s frustrated at losing when he feels they could win if he got more touches.

    I think he looks more and more like Phil Jacksons’ long lost son (wheres the beard phil?) and Pau def should get more shots, where’s the triangle offense?

    My fantasy team would really appreciate if pau got his wish.

    to nate james:
    pau is not goin anywhere, he put memphis on the map all by himself, and if hes got a chance to play with the best player in the world, he’s not gonna give that up regardless of shot attempts. he knows how good they each are and what they can do together. they will win their ring this year

    Pau will be the next best centre in LAKERLAND since whatshisname…

    Pau ‘give me shots’ Gasol just spend the weekend with Carter, Marbury, Maggette, and Iverson – he asked for some pointers…..

    Mine as well Ben. Besides, feeding your big man encourages him to work more defensively, boxing out, bumping cutters etc.

    I don’t think Kobe will appreciate that…
