Recently, many players around the league have voiced their opinion about Lakers’ Center Pau Gasol. They have questioned his toughness and Amare Stoudemire came straight out and called Gasol soft. I don’t know if this is to shake him up before the postseason or what. I personally feel like Pau is an amazing post player and although may not be a strong and athletic, I prefer him to the Magic’s Dwight Howard. Pau has the post moves down low to finish and was a key piece to the Lakers winning back-to-back rings. Kendrick Perkins, now big man of the Oklahoma City Thunder, was the first to share his thoughts of Pau being soft. Domino chain reaction followed. Pau has had enough.Finally Gasol answered back as ESPN Los Angeles’ Arash Marakazi reported.
After an extended practice Saturday, Gasol smiled and shook his head when he was relayed Perkins’ remarks.
“Certain players talk too much from my perspective,” he said. “They should worry about their own stuff.”
