Pau Gasol is a Los Angeles Lakers legend and we might get to see him one more time in the purple and gold.
Kobe Bryant does not win his fourth and fifth championship with the Los Angeles Lakers without Pau Gasol. Because of that, Gasol has become one of the most beloved Lakers of all-time, even if he is not a generational superstar like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The Lakers traded the draft rights to Pau’s brother, Marc Gasol, as part of the trade to get Gasol all the way back in 2008. Now, 12 years later, Marc is rejoining the team that initially drafted him, signing a two-year deal with the Lakers.
There is a chance that Pau could rejoin the team as well.
Marc said in an interview with Spectrum SportsNet that he believes that Pau, who did not play last season, would love to sign with the Lakers. LeBron Jame added fuel to the fire, simply saying “we’ll see” when asked about Pau signing with the Lakers.
We discussed the possibility of Pau Gasol rejoining the Los Angeles Lakers on the latest episode of the Lake Show Life Podcast. My co-host Daniel Preciado is quite the Gasol fan himself.
Gasol is not the only thing we discussed on the latest episode of the podcast. We also detailed his brother Marc and how he fits on the team and how I believe that his role with the team is going to be the role that they envisioned for DeMarcus Cousins last season.
We also talked about the Lakers re-signing KCP and why his contract figure is not an overpay (spoiler alert: it is because it is really tradeable in the future).
Daniel, being the college basketball wiz that he is, also breaks down the two undrafted free agents that the Lakers recently signed, Kevon Harris and Trey Tinkle. Daniel especially likes Tinkle, who has to have one of the greatest basketball names in recent memory.
