GOOD D, PAU!
I thought I was ready for a video titled “Please Trade for Pau Gasol”. Then Sarah McLachlan’s “Arms of an Angel” kicked in, and so did my tears.
Please, call now, and help give Pau Gasol a loving team that knows what to do with him.

IF YOU’RE A LAKER FAN, AND YOU’RE ANGRY, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN MY RAGE.
You guys give up too easily. Try being a fan of any other team, ever.
Y’know what I love? Perspective.
The Lakers are currently three games under .500, with 49 games left to play
On their roster:
-34-year old Kobe Bryant, currently leading the league in scoring despite his age
-Dwight Howard, at 75% due to back issues, who is still second in the league in rebounds per game and first in total rebounds. Had 26 rebounds last night in loss. TWENTY-SIX. Averaging a double-double.
-A mentally broken Pau Gasol, shooting 29% and averaging 8/6/3 the last three games. Led Spain to a silver medal in the Olympics. 32-years old
-38-year old Steve Nash, coming off a leg fracture. Has played in nine games this season. Still averaging 10 points and 8 assists. Real talks without being a dick *cough*Kobe*cough*
AND NO OTHER GOOD PLAYER AT ALL. Want proof? Here’s more:
-Pissed-off Antawn Jamison
Oh, and Metta World Peace, who is actually not bad this season (avg. 13/6 with +14 efficiency).
This team is mediocre because they’re mediocre. And they’ve barely played with each other. Time would be the cure… except they’re running out.
Andrew: Look at them. Look at how they… try.
Pau: But I thought trying was good? Don’t we want to win?
Andrew: Ha! By not trying, we do win. We’ll get shipped off to other cities, away from Kobe, where we can be the best player on the team. And the best part is, we still won’t have to try!
Pau: But I love LA. I have a home here. And my medical practice! Besides, you did try tonight. You got a 20-14!
Andrew: But a -27! Never give them too much, or they might start liking you. Now if you excuse me, I have some threes to shoot.
