Video: Pau Gasol Happy to Stay With Lakers

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The NBA trade deadline has passed and the Los Angeles Lakers made a couple trades which shocked its fan base. Derek Fisher was traded to the Houston Rockets following five titles with the team and before that, the Lakers acquired Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

However, despite the early trade rumors, the Lakers decided to keep Pau Gasol. Gasol was initially traded to the Rockets as part of the Chris Paul deal, but that trade was vetoed and he remained with the Lakers.

Ever since then, Gasol’s future with the team was in limbo and he did not know when he would wear his Lakers jersey for the final time. Luckily for the Spaniard, the Lakers did not trade him before the deadline and chose to go into the post-season with him and Kobe Bryant.

Shortly after the 12 p.m. deadline passed, Gasol released a video and wanted to express his relief of not being traded. Let’s hope Gasol continues to get better and gives the front-office a reason to make him a long-term option.

    its a happy result for Pau Gasol, yes! He will remain in the team to continue their goal for winning the champions again. I was awake the midnight here to wait for the Lakers about the trade rumor. i was really upset when i first heard about trading Gasol. i keep posting on net, joining the forums etc. Its difficult to lose former teammates that we know how they played well and support their  team – their second family for the past year. But as we all know, that it will happen yearly. Just hold on tight and everything will set for u all. KOBE for the MVP, for me !!!

    pao. I have been your biggest supporter as a( Laker fan of 30 plus years) and I am pleased that you will remain a Laker. Let us get to my main comment and suggestion that is proven to work in the past for you and the team.
     I wanted to remind you to keep shooting your hook shot (left and right hand) when you are in the paint, because this is your “go to” shot and the most successful , based on previous years.

    Also you and Andrew need to remember to quit trying to dribble the ball every time you get the ball. Your only making it easier for opposing players to steal it from you,and I know that you are both working on eliminating this bad habit from both of your games.
    Yes , I  am the best living ” room couch potato ” coach of all time.

     Thanks for your dedication and professionalism as a Laker player and for all your off the court time that you give for children and various charities. Continued success !
