As reported this morning by Colin Cowherd on his radio show for ESPN, it appears that the recent struggles of Pau Gasol may be related to his recent breakup with his longtime girlfriend and fiance.
Cowherd was citing an article on MediaTakeout.com, which stated that two weeks ago Gasol was dumped by his girlfriend, and that he blamed a teammate’s wife.
Whether or not the reports are true, it could explain the inexplicable demise of Gasol’s performance on the court. It could also explain the ‘trust issues’ that were brought up by Andrew Bynum following the loss in Game 2 on Wednesday night.
