Pau Gasol No Longer Feels ‘Physically Frustrated Or Mentally Tired’

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The last two seasons have been brutal to say the least for Pau Gasol. The two-time NBA champion has dealt with numerous injuries, countless trade rumors, and an uncertain future.

Fortunately, the Spaniard is taking some much needed time off before entering free agency for the first time in his NBA career in July. Gasol has been consummate professional throughout the last two years and is finally enjoying time away from the game in his native country of Spain.

While in Spain, Gasol updated his blog, PauGasol.com, with some updates on his physical condition. Gasol said the following about his current status:

“I feel great. My vertigo problems are finally over. I’m not physically frustrated or mentally tired. I can’t remember the last vacation when I was feeling this good. I’m fresh, wanting to do a lot of things. I don’t feel like switching off completely, with the summer we have ahead of us, with the World Championship and the other personal and professional projects I have in mind.”

Heading into free agency this summer, Gasol will weigh all of his options as he makes a decision about where he’ll end up playing potentially the last years of his career in the NBA.

With the recent departure of Mike D’Antoni, Gasol may be more inclined to return to the Lakers. Kobe Bryant has already reached out to Gasol in an effort to get his longtime teammate to stay in Los Angeles a little while longer, but it is too early to tell if he’ll be back.

Recently, Gasol has been linked to a few different teams that might try to retain his services in July. The San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks, Memphis Grizzlies and Chicago Bulls could be potential destinations for the veteran in free agency.

    LOL this is awesome. Pau is feeling all better! I’ll bet you a stack of Pringles I know why that is….

  • comrade24

    Would like to have Gasol back, there’s not a lot of great options out there at center. The thought of him in a Spurs uniform makes me sick.

    • greg

      *cough* greg monroe *cough*…i do love pau with a burning passion though, il never forget wat he’s given us

      • comrade24

        i’d rather have Monroe as well, with the SVG hiring apparently that is looking more likely. Could also pair them together if the price is right.

      • WJS

        Don’t forget Monroe will be looking for a Max contract tho. He is not worth a max. Especially not if it jeopardizes our cap next year

  • Gavin

    Doesn’t matter. Father Time has already exerted himself with this guy. He’ll give you 20 and 10 alright, but on defense gives you absolutely nothing. He’s a year older, another year slower, and will cower whenever things get physical down low and start settling for weak outside J’s. Oh, and he plans to play in the World Championships this Summer which means more wear and tear on an already barren thread. Time to stop clinging to past and move on. Signing this guy to a 3 or 4 year extension will be a mistake.

  • lovethoseknicks

    Gasol is done.

    You know.. if I was pau gasol , I wouldnt take anyless money from the lakers than what other teams are offering. If kobe can be given some ridiculous contract , so can pau since everyone is thinking about themselves. Im a die hard laker fan but kobe is killing this team with that fat contract while he persuades others to stay with a pay cut. Pau has been the most professional player on a laker team for the passed 6 years. Kobe needs to put his big boy pants and follow the tim duncans and dirks of the nba. I hope he gets the financial compensation he deserves .. he’s still one of the top players of the nba and all that with a coach that under-utilized him. Pau, think for yourself , there are 30 teams that will pay what youre worth

    • honestly

      how is kobe’s salary killing the team? HE IS THE TEAM… he has the highest salary on the richest team in the nba, where he gave them 5 rings and a multi billion contract with time warner… so yeah
