Odds of it happening?

What are the odds that Crooner stops making Gasol threads?

Offseason is boring.

Win at least 2 rings, and star in a couple of pornos.

No, as good as Marc is, he doesn't have the capabilities of having a running an offense run through him simply because Pau is more skilled and versatile. Marc can only play the 5 while Pau can play both the 4 and 5. If Marc was that good, Memphis would have built the team around him like they did around Pau.

Pau is also the taller lengthier player who will eventually get you more rebounds and protect the basket moreso than Marc.


Just my take.

Agree, the first 3 conference finals games haven't even been that competitive. Offseason trades with Dwight, Pau etc. and tonight's draft lottery I think are slowly overshadowing all the storylines of the 4 teams remaining.

Did you notice that once they went 3-1 down vs clipps they decided to finally construct the offense trough him and let him be the 1st option? 2-1 had they done it earlier they would have gone trough.
Question is if they will follow with that next season ( and how sucesfull he may or may not be if it happens).

He has also a stronger body for the nowdays nba thats important and its a better defender.

But with Randolph sharing the touches with Marc and Rudy doing his thing, I'm afraid Marc will always be the 3rd option unless they trade one of the other two guys and Hollins constructs the offense around Marc.

Game 1 of Western saw OKC leading for 3.5 quarters and an epic comeback from the spurs and okc losing by 3...not competitive?

Pau was arguably the best player on a championship team

Pau has more skill if thats what you're asking.

I say Pau easily. I love Marc's game, but I worry about his durability in the future due to his weight. He's a big guy, all the pressure being placed on those joints seems like it'll add up.
