Pau Wants to See a Pass Thrown His Way

by December 14, 2009

Gasol’s annual plea to receive the ball more came a little early this season: “I don’t get many looks offensively, so I’ve got to get my offensive rebounds,’ he said. ‘Otherwise I’ll get five shots during the game.’ That Gasol didn’t even bother to wait for the subject of his lack of involvement in the offense to be brought up suggests the big man is especially frustrated at a lack of touches in the post … ‘It’s a little bit of everything I guess,’ Gasol said. ‘I’m not inside a whole lot and teams are aware of our size advantage. They come and double, force us to make an extra pass and guys have to knock down the outside shot so it opens up for us too.'”
