About two months ago (probably less), there were people hoping that Gasol would just go ahead and retire. After all of these years, it still amazes me to see the shifting tides on LG.


LG is a reactionary place with short memories. In the eyes of the mob here, it doesn't take long for a player to go from a sure Hall of Famer to a scrub who doesn't belong in the European league, and vice versa

They've both looked like arse at times this year while they play into shape / deal with health issues.

It seems to me that AD2 should start to put him next to LBJ / AD and Gasol should run with the subs. Then you close with whoever has it that night.

In theory, Gasol would end up with more minutes than AD2 and we could run the offense through him with the subs. It would also surround AD2 with solid perimeter defenders covering up some of those issues.

I like this idea a lot.

Anthony Davis is the team's closing C.

Come playoff time, Marc will have infinite more value if Drummond keeps playing like a complete lost child in the mall trying to find a parent.

Why is it drummond now? So harrell is better than drummond now? We gonna start Gasol but still use Harrell at C?

That aint still doesnt gonna fix anything. That 2nd unit has the biggest problem without Bron and AD on the court. Playing Harrell @ C without them, that lineup will still have no defense, no playmaker and offense is stagnant, either Trezz iso or shoot a 3. But with Gasol in that 2nd unit, it will be a different story

Dre and Gasol should still be the one who will be the Center and AD will be the closimg Center. Harrell should not see a daylight at center spot.
