    Back in 2008, the arrival of Pau to the Lakers was a blessing for Kobe for basketball reasons. But man, it really ended up being a gigantic blessing for reasons way beyond basketball.

    There's a ton of players out there that treat each other as "brothers", but what Pau has done for Kobe AFTER his passing... there's actually many real brothers out there that wouldn't do nearly as much as this guy.

    I also had a lot of critics against him at some points during his Laker career (especially towards the end), but I'm glad this guy was a Laker and in the end will be remembered mostly as a Laker. Even beyond basketball reasons, it's great to see people like this being part of the organization we follow.

    One of my favorite all time Lakers and my favorite Laker off the court.
    He deserves much more respect than many Laker fans have given him over the years.

    Kobe had a selfish tag on him and ball hog tag on him, yet when he was accepting HIS FINALS MVP after Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, he was thanking and giving credit for the title to Pau Gasol. Kobe does the Last Dance interview before he passes and says he doesnt have the 5 titles without Michael Jordan. But Kobe was selfish. Of course, everyone started kissing his a** after he retired and especially now that he is gone, but when he was in his zone as a player, he was selfish. I always remember the posers.

    the great ones need to be selfish during "winnin' time"

    They are the best options, and they know it. That's why Lebron always wants to take the last shot.

    Wow, Kwame calling like he sees it. He def respected Kobe.

    he basically just said the Lakers lack of leadership, that LeBron is too old to be the leader, and is having trouble letting go. That everybody is too nice, and they need some Kobe style leadership to crack some skulls.

    Saw this tweet nearby and cracked me up

    That trade went down on my 21st birthday. Best day ever. Not to mention the weekend capped off with the Pats losing their perfect season. All was great for this New England'er who doesn't get down like that.

    He might have hit 90 if he played the 4th. A shame.
