After a difficult season, Lakers forward/center Pau Gasol is looking forward to a new start this fall with the Lakers sans Dwight Howard.
“I understood and understand it was a difficult situation for a lot of people, to make things work,” Gasol said Friday in a phone call from Spain. “As difficult as it was at times, now it’s behind us and all we can do is focus on the present and what’s coming.”
Coach Mike D’Antoni even benched Gasol for a stretch, hoping to find a way to build a winner around Howard despite Gasol’s track record with two NBA titles.
“I don’t hold grudges. I really don’t get stuck in the past,” Gasol said. “Things happen for a reason, that’s why I always stay in the present. I’m happy with my position now. I’m excited to get started in training camp when the time comes.”
