    bro it's not even really close. Paul doesn't have all the injury history he might win 2-3 championships and his averages over his career will be like 18-20 pts and 10 rebs. Manu he came off the bench doesn't put up all-star numbers and will not have the stats that Gasol will plus Gasol might even have more playoff success and will be remebered as a legitimate star side-kick.

    not even close? Ginobili has won three championships (vs. the 2-3 championships Gasol *might* win) and the only reason Manu came off the bench is because he asked to come off the bench. Manu and Gasol are both international b-ball icons. When you think about it, Gasol has had only 2 relevant years

    Gasol's stats really aren't that much better and also consider that Manu has played with Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, arguably the best PF of all time and Gasol played with nobody when the Grizzlies were a joke. Additionally, anybody who's watched Ginobili over his career knows that he does the little things, the intangibles that stats don't pick up that wins championships.

    Gasol's career averages:
    19 pts 9 rbs 3.5 assists

    Manu's career averages:
    15 pts 5 rebounds 3.5 assists 1.4 steals

    It's def. debatable but to say it's "not even close?" Come on "Bro"

    This is a tough one. And it's close. Gasol has the international success but so does Ginobili. They are both NBA champions. As of right now I would say Manu but his window is already closing. Gasol is 29 and has a couple years left to go. If the Lakers continue their success I will go with Gasol.

    I give the edge to Pau. He was doing this with Memphis for a while and was clearly the reason LA was able to win a ring.
    Manu is great, but at his position, he seems more suited to a #2 role where Pau doesn't have to be.

    If as Kobe declines Pau starts to shift into the position of the Lakers 1b option, I think Pau will have the better shot of getting in ahead of Manu.

    That said, I see Manu as HOF worthy. He's one of the few players that I like not in a Lakers uniform. All heart and competitive fire, injury plagued or not.

    Their career averages and highlights make similar cases so far, but I think Gasol is on a better team now, and has better health prospects going forward. His future stats should be better-- and so I'm leaning toward the Spaniard.

    I'll have to say Manu since he's played a more integral role on an annual contender for years

    and there you have it. His NBA resume is better and his international resume is better.
