And he says that he doesn’t care who’s blocking his path to the hoop: “Each time chiseled 6-foot-11 Dwight Howard knocks him around on the low block on one end of the court, Gasol pledges to use his face-up game to put Superman in foul trouble on the other. He’ll take the opposite approach against spindly 6-10 Rashard Lewis, who lacks the beef to keep Gasol out of the paint defensively. ‘You’ve got to try to be the aggressor and to take initiative,’ Gasol said. ‘Don’t wait for them to use their strength on you. Go ahead and use your own strength against them so you put them in jeopardy.'”
