Lakers, Gasol Agree to 3-Year Extension

The Lakers wisely ensured that Pau is going to be in SoCal for a little while longer. Talks between Kobe and the team also sound promising: “Lakers forward Pau Gasol has agreed in principle to an extension that would keep him under contract through 2013-14, and Kobe Bryant has had ever-improving discussions on a contract extension that would keep him with the Lakers for the same period. On Friday, Gasol smiled and said, ‘I haven’t signed anything yet,’ but it was merely semantics, the stroke of a pen probably completing his extension within a few days after the Lakers’ trip ends Sunday in Detroit, according to sources close to the negotiations but not authorized to speak publicly.”

    the best part is that Pau already said that he will not participate to the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (he won it in 2006) meaning that the road opens for the U.S. to reclaim the world title after 16 years(1994, Shaq,Coleman,Dumars,Dominique,etc )……also Greece can now hope for a real chance at the final (if we do not suffer an absense of equal importance like Diamantidis who is injured at the moment)…..

    the funny thing is that if Lebron fans were smart(i know,too much to ask from Eboy,tavorisjukai,etc), they could simply point out that Kobe won once again the title ONLY AFTER he was paired again with the best big man in the world….(Dirk is a better player than Pau BUT Pau is doing the bigmen things better.Duncan is past his prime and “Superguffy”, well, at least he can dunk/jump like a cartoon…!!!!)

    Okay Zorba, you’re making me want to start rooting for Orlando with you’re uppity comments. We’re still talking about sports here, so ridiculing people with athletic ability is making you look like a senile crippled and bitter hairy old man. Okay I got that out my system. Go Lakers!!

    I don’t see why not. I mean, if Lebron wants to win a chip, and if he’ll do anything to win, why not get paid less and join the Lakers and play with Kobe. LOL

    btw. it was a joke, for those who take these things too seriously…

    Now that Pau is going to stay with the Lakers they can contend for Championships for the next 4-5 years. Pau is the P. of The “Ko P. DeLA-Ron Dynsaty” Kobe, Pau, Derek, Lamar, Andrew, and Ron. The new signature nickname comes from the first name of all 6 core players. Ko-Kobe, P.-Pau, De-Derek, L-Lamar, A-Andrew, Ron-Ron.

    LeBron needs the Lakers to win a championship, but the Lakers do not need LeBron.

    DunkadelicKobe24isanidiot: No, he’s entirely right…

  • http://dsjfhklf.com Jukai

    Spanny is right also, with Gasol playing, the US probably would not have won a US World Championship without Lebron/Wade/Kobe.

    is dimitris diamantidis the scientific name for “forrest troll”?

  • http://www.slamonline.com melvin ely

    I apparently fail at spelling “forest”. Well at least I didn’t punctuate with 75 exclamation marks.

  • JoeMaMa

    I think Dimitris snorts cocaine cut with sugar before he posts. I haven’t seen energy like this since Uma Thurman got stuck with a shot of adrenaline in Pulp Fiction.
