I guess maybe this is cause of how Pau was treated in his end in LA.... or the fact that they traded Marc in the first place :laugh2:

Not a surprise. We didn't treat pau so hot. But the fit doesn't make sense for either party right now.

I don't see Marc leaving Memphis. But leaving for la is def not happening after the treatment of pau.

Exactly, plus Memphis can offer more money and he can contend there. That's his home, LA makes no sense. Completely understandable.

So a fan of a non championship team cant say if he feels another team can or can't win it? Got it.

By that logic, since when are the Knicks good enough to say the Lakers suck?

Lol what in the world are you saying? Lakers have room for one max player how is Marc Kobe and rookies/scrubs get him any closer to a ring? Lol please. Me being a knick fan has 0 to do with it, Why in the world should Marc go there over a team like the Spurs or Memphis

I never said he should. We won't be contenders until Kobe is gone. I was just replying to your post insinuating that a Laker fan can't say whether he thinks a team cant win because the Lakers aren't contenders.

Yeah because I'm sure good luck with a ring isn't because he "is rumored" to not be interested in your team lol

I dont know what he meant when he said it. And even if he did say it because he won't come here, so what? What if he really feels thatthe Grizz won't win? It's not a big stretch. And its not like Gasol is going to read it.

Most likely and I think it's the wrong decision. How many years does Memphis need to put more shooters around Gasol and Randolph?

They had one fall right into their laps(RJ Hunter) in this years draft and they passed on him.

you should close this thread and just name it, "Where will Marc Gasol Sign?"

Honestly, are people going to start a thread for every free agent the Lakers don't sign? lol

Anyways, of course he's not going to come here especially after we traded him and his brother twice lol we treated Pau horribly. Hopefully we can get one legit big free agent.

First of all RJ Hunter shot 30% from 3 against weak competition. Second of all, Memphis (even unhealthy) may have been the second best team in the playoffs this year. Ask the warriors who the toughest team was to beat in the playoffs.

Some guys just dont care for winning, and he's a Gasol, who are known to be soft anyways, and when i mean "soft" i mean sensitive af lol

Marc Gasol will not be joining alot of teams. I don't really care about him not joining the Lakers.

this might not seem like a big deal but now that is Gasol/Howard within 3 years... They are the lakers but their front office and ownership is garbage and players are spreading that around... Its not always kobes fault sorry... its the organization and how they have done business... they will sign LA and once he leaves we will hear again how horrid it was there.

I don't think Pau was treated poorly by the Lakers. They tried to trade him for Chris Paul, how is that a crime? LAL easily could have traded Pau for Phoenixs 14th overall pick in the 2014 draft (pick became T.J. Warren) but they stuck with him. At the end of the day I don't think Pau had a major gripe with ownership, outside of their coaching decisions, which he had every right to be pissed about. I think Pau just wanted to win and he thought San Antonio or Chicago was the best place to do it, and he likes the city.

but one things for sure, the dream of Marc back in LA ended when Pau went to Chicago. The Lakers never should have traded him in the first place. It should have been Bynum, not Marc as the center piece of that deal that got Pau.

Doesn't make sense for the Lakers to pursue him either.

Marc Gasol is never winning a ring if he stays in Memphis, If Marc was smart he would sign with the Spurs.
That Grizzlies team is at best a conference finals/second round exit every year and they aren't getting any younger.

Classy guy, though. Didn't even use the other teams as leverage, decided only to deal with Memphis. I give him props for that.

The Knicks could go 0-82... that doesn't mean the Lakers don't suck.

Who pulled your string?

And I never said that they didn't suck. I was just pointing out the hypocrisy of his statement. He's saying if you're a fan of a team that sucks, you can't make statements about teams better than yours. I was telling him to stick to his own philosophy

I would happily put money on the Knicks making the playoffs before the Lakers do.
