Pau Gasol

  1. Pau Gasol not sure if he will play for Spain in 2016 Olympics

    Jan 23, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    pau gasol spain olympics

    Spain has the second best national basketball team in the world. Anchored in the paint by brothers Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol, plus with a host of good guards such as Jose Calderon and Ricky Rubio, they have won two Olympic silver medals in a row, able to beat out every nation on earth save…

  2. The first time Pau Gasol met Kendall Marshall they looked very different

    Time flies!! Here with my teammate @KButter5 at the AllStar weekend in Atlanta 11 years ago! pic.twitter.com/v2wf1ZqkEh — Pau Gasol (@paugasol) January 21, 2014 It was the 2003 All-Star Game in Atlanta and rookie Pau Gasol was in town as part of the Rookie/Sophomore game, when he took a moment to take a picture with…

  3. Taj Gibson layup beats Lakers in overtime (VIDEO)

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    If the other team is taking the ball out of bounds and has less than a second to get off a shot at the end of the shot clock — or, let’s say, at the end of the game — the one thing you don’t want to give up is a pass to a guy…

  4. Raptors’ bench Jonas Valanciunas for play vs. Los Angeles Lakers

    Jan 20, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors

    After seeing him bulked up at Summer League and looking like a man among boys, after seeing him play well for his native Lithuania over the summer, a lot of people picked Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas to have a breakout season. Not so much. He’s scoring a little more per game but that’s just because he’s…

  5. Are the Heat the NBA’s most book smart team? They think so.

    Jan 14, 2014, 3:11 PM EDT

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    An NBA locker room is not the most academic of settings. It’s not a book club sitting around discussing “The Luminaries” (even though with all the down time NBA players have they have the time to get through it). There are smart, well read guys in the NBA, however, and they tend to be veteran…

  6. Pau Gasol has strain in left foot, game time call for Tuesday night

    Jan 14, 2014, 12:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Well, it could have been worse, and usually this season when a Laker gets injured it seems like “worse” is the default. Pau Gasol had an MRI on his sore left foot and it came back with a “moderate strain of the flexor tendon of the big toe of his left foot” the team announced.…

  7. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  8. No drama in reunion, just easy Rockets win vs. Lakers (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    Wise move, NBA television executives, choosing to pull Wednesday night’s Lakers at Rockets game off the national broadcast (not that the Spurs/Mavs game that replaced turned out to be a thriller). There is no Kobe Bryant and the “Dwight Howard reunion” drama had played itself out long ago. This was simply another mid-season NBA game…

  9. Pau Gasol’s night at “The Lion King” almost ruined by false trade rumor

    Jan 8, 2014, 4:14 PM EDT

    Actors of the musical "The Lion King" pe

    There were a whole lot of Andrew Bynum for Pau Gasol trade rumors out there last weekend, ones that never came to fruition because the Lakers wanted pieces to help them down the line (young players or picks) and the Cavaliers had no intention of giving those up because they already had the Luol Deng…

  10. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  11. Cavaliers trade Andrew Bynum to Chicago Bulls for Luol Deng

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Not only was Luol Deng on the trade market, the Chicago Bulls had a taker — the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Chicago Bulls have agreed to trade Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Andrew Bynum and a first round pick (the Kings’ pick owned by the Cavs that is top 12 protected this season, top…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  13. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

  14. Gasol-Bynum trade talks update: Talks reportedly on hold as Lakers, Cavaliers can’t make deal work

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:10 AM EDT

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Don’t be shocked if word comes down Monday at that Andrew Bynum is on his way to the Utah Jazz. Or maybe the Cavaliers just decide to hold on to Bynum for a day then waive him themselves on Tuesday. That’s because the much-discussed Bynum to the Los Angeles Lakers for Pau Gasol talks have…

  15. Gasol-Bynum trade talks update: Cavs reportedly unwilling to include Dion Waiters

    Jan 5, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    dion waiters

    Talks remain ongoing between the Lakers and the Cavaliers about a trade involving Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. And with Cleveland under a deadline of sorts to get a deal done before Bynum’s contract becomes fully guaranteed Jan. 7, it’s not surprising that L.A. is sticking to its guns in terms of wanting an asset…

  16. Report of completed Pau Gasol-Andrew Bynum trade quickly shot down

    Jan 5, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder -  Game Five

    A Pau Gasol-Andrew Bynum trade went from stalled to done to somewhere in between, at least according to ESPN reports. After the Lakers and Cavaliers hit a snag in their negotiations, ESPNLA 710 reported in a since-deleted tweet: https://twitter.com/ESPNLA710/statuses/419720923529236480 ESPNLA 710 later explained its reporting: We apologize for any confusion our earlier tweet about Pau…

  17. Report: Utah’s Richard Jefferson possible trade piece for Andrew Bynum

    Jan 4, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    At some time Monday the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to make a move, trading Andrew Bynum to a team that will turn around and waive him in the next 24-hours, saving themselves $6 million. The only question is who is coming back to Cleveland. The answer may be veteran swingman Richard Jefferson of the Utah…

  18. Report: Cavaliers looking at Monday to pick Andrew Bynum trade partner

    Jan 3, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Deadlines move people in the NBA. To clear the second half of Andrew Bynum’s $12.2 million off their books before the deal becomes guaranteed, a team has to waive Bynum by Jan. 7, next Tuesday. So Monday the Cavaliers are going to trade him. That’s the plan reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Cavs mulling…

  19. Report: Rockets likely to keep Omer Asik past trade deadline

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:08 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Last month the Houston Rockets created a pseudo self-imposed deadline in an effort to jump-start trade talks for big man Omer Asik. Before you scoff at the idea, remember that trades and pretty much everything else business related in the NBA doesn’t get done until there is some kind of deadline pressure to make a…

  20. Kyrie Irving out Thursday night with knee bruise

    Jan 2, 2014, 6:25 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    The good news is it wasn’t something serious — Kyrie Irving’s scary knee injury turned out to be a knee contusion. Still, you had to expect he would miss a little time. Irving is out Thursday night as the Cavaliers take on the Magic, as reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Jarrett Jack will get…

  21. Report: Pau Gasol/Andrew Bynum trade talks stalled

    Jan 2, 2014, 2:13 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    While the idea of former teammates Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol being traded for each other had some “what a quirky coincidence” fun about it, the odds of making a deal really work for both sides always was a tough sell. Which is why trade talks between the Lakers and Cavaliers have stalled, reports ESPN.…

  22. Hedo Turkoglu still on trade block, still hopes to get back in NBA

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:54 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    There have been a lot of trade rumors around Andrew Bynum — if a team trades for him then waives him by Jan. 7 (or if the Cavaliers waive him) they save $6 million on the salary cap. Marc Stein at ESPN reminds us Bynum is not the only guy in this situation — Orlando…

  23. Report: Kyrie Irving has knee bruise, is day-to-day

    Jan 1, 2014, 5:25 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Finally, some good injury news. An MRI revealed Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving has only a knee contusion and he is officially day-to-day, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN. Considering he had to leave the game and thought he felt a “pop” this is very good news. Especially for the people who have voted Irving an All-Star starter…

  24. Report: Bulls not interested in trading Luol Deng for Andrew Bynum

    Jan 1, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    deng

    In the same report that had the Lakers in discussions with the Cavaliers about a possible trade of Pau Gasol for Andrew Bynum, there was talk that the Bulls may be interested in a similar salary dump by offering up Luol Deng to Cleveland in exchange for the suspended center. The move from Chicago’s side…

  25. Report: Lakers, Cavs have discussed a trade involving Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum

    Dec 31, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Pau Gasol is wearing out his welcome with the Lakers, having his effort questioned while recently sitting out games some felt he could have played in and not playing well or being happy with his fit in Mike D’Antoni’s system. The situation is far worse with Andrew Bynum and the Cavaliers, who suspended him indefinitely…
