Lakers: ‘Slim’ Chance of Pau Gasol Trade
If you think Kobe Bryant is unhappy now, imagine him still sitting on three rings if the Lakers hadn’t acquired (Pau) Gasol.
But now Gasol wouldn’t be surprised if he gets tossed aside.
“If the right opportunity comes along,” Gasol says, “they will take advantage of it.”
“I guess some people have given up on me now,” he says with a grin. “I think if I had played at my usual level, it would have been unheard of to be traded.”
Lakers management now passes along word there’s only a slim chance Gasol will be traded.
“Slim,” he repeats, and Gasol knows how that goes.
