Gasol: I’m Showing the Kind of Player I am

Even when Pau Gasol takes more shots than normal, plays more aggressively than normal and stays engaged in the action until the very last second to preserve a Los Angeles Lakers overtime victory over the Boston Celtics, he still won’t come out and make bold proclamations.
Big talk isn’t his thing, despite his bilingual fluency. So if he’s angry that he was left off the Western Conference All-Star team, you’ll just have to interpret from his observation that, “It’s surprising that they picked so many guards.”
And if his impressive stat line of 25 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks weren’t enough of a statement, there’s also this, the closest he’ll ever come to saying, “See!”
“I just wanted to make sure everybody knows the kind of player that I am,” Gasol said. “And I continue to help my team to get better and win games.”
Hmm, could “everybody” include the Lakers’ front office, which was willing to send him out of town in exchange for Chris Paul and continues to, at the very least, entertain offers for Gasol?
