As I said in another post, no Pau this year, no playoffs for the Bulls. As soon as he injured his hamstring, the Bulls went downhill with no brakes.

This HAD to happen. Thibodeau is such a dumb ass. 35 years old and he played the 1ST and 3RD complete quarters and 4 or 5 minutes in both 2ND and 4TH, no matter the result. This is so stupid...

Oh,man... Please...

The Bulls are nothing without Butler and Pau. They had Butler, they didn´t have Pau because he was injured. Game over for the Bulls. That simple.

Saying that Pau played soft while ignoring that he shouldn´t have played the game and that he just did it to help the team after the disaster the Bulls created when Gasol had to skip two games with a injured hamstring is ...well, what it is... It is trying to make reality fit preconceptions.

WOW I thought our front office was screwed up . They publicaly bashed the coach in the media while at the same time honestly thought they could get far in the playoffs? Thibs was a good coach for that team and had Rose not been so hurt the last few years who knows. Maybe it could have been SA vs Chi finals at some point.

I love it when all the Pau-haters were silent while Pau was leading the league in double-doubles and keeping the Bulls afloat with all the injuries. Then he comes back after a hamstring injury to try and help his team and they bash him. SMH

No, but that's one reason why we didn't resign him to a large deal.

This is now no longer about Gasol the Bull, but Gasol the Hall of Famer.

Gasol is back and it is still quite possible he joins a very elite list this year, the 20K/10K list.

The Spurs have 25 games left and Gasol is 317 points shy of 20K. If he averages about 12.7 PPG, he'll do it this year.

Twelve points tonight and the NBA will have another player with 20K points and 10K rebounds, a nice milestone.

Looks like he passed 20k.

Gasol vs Gasol in the 1st round. How many times have siblings played each other in the playoffs? Or is this the first time?

I checked the major names, but none of them checked out. There's a ton of brothers though. Even George Mikan, George Gervin, and Bernard King had brothers who had cups of coffee in the NBA at one time or other. Even D-Fish! had a brother who played. Might've happened in a near technical sense between two lesser known bros. That's an answer for Elias Sports Bureau.

And that´s not all. This is insane: this season he set a new all-time 3P% record (with more than 100 attempts) , with an incredible 53.8 3P% ...



Even Kobe said that you will have a hard time finding bigs with a similar all-around skill level in the history of the league.
