Nikola Vucevic faces Gasol Brothers in back-to-back games

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Nikola Vucevic grew up admiring Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol. Because the Gasol Brothers grew up in Spain, their success inspired Vucevic and other European big men. A scheduling quirk allowed Vucevic to face the Gasols in consecutive games. Vucevic matched up against Pau Gasol during...

Lakers News: Pau Gasol is the latest person to compare Julius Randle to Draymond Green

Randle is making the comparison less with each passing game, even if he isn’t on Green’s level yet. Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton has done it. Julius Randle has done it (multiple times). Even Draymond Green himself has done it. And on Friday before the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center, Pau Gasol compared his old team’s current power forward to Golden State defensive ace Draymond Green. “He’s playing really well and is aggressive. He has talent and has skill and he’s hungry. He’s young. He’s putting up some real good games,” Gasol told Mark...

The Spurs will be dangerous once they’re on the same page

With a highly rated offense and defense, but a high number of recent turnovers, San Antonio’s issues are mostly around gelling. In the last week, the Spurs have gone 3-1, gotten Danny Green back, and lost him again to a flying knee he took like a man. Pau Gasol has shown improved comfort with the offense and Tony Parker has looked healthy and productive. In Episode 25 of the Superfluous Poppycock podcast, Seth Warren and I discuss the above, and Jonathon Simmons’ role, Gasol’s issues on defense, the role of Patty Mills, and some Kobe Bryant-related poppycock.

Pau Gasol leads Spurs to a win, but a late run by the Kings becomes a teachable moment

The Spurs were cruising to an easy win behind Pau Gasol's best game as a Spur and solid games from the Spurs starters, but with a little over 3 minutes left in the game and a 18 point lead, Pop put in an inexperienced lineup and the Kings closed out the game strong, cutting the lead to just 4 points before they ran out of time. The Golden 1 arena in Sacramento looks like the mothership from the science fiction series V, but instead of containing reptilian aliens, it is the home of one of the best big men in the league, DeMarcus Cousins and probably the only coach who can make him play hard...

David Lee as the Spurs’ new Boris Diaw

One of the summer’s less celebrated signings has looked like a great move thus far for the Spurs. No one knew what to expect from the Spurs’ new frontcourt coming into this season. At the center of it was Pau Gasol signing as Tim Duncan retired, but there were also concerns with the exits of Boris Diaw and David West, two bigs who each filled out important roles on the bench. Of the two losses, Diaw’s was the one that hurt the most sentimentally. His signing in 2012, following a release from the lowly Bobcats, coincided with the rise of the Beautiful Game Era, as he endeared himself...

Spurs Playbook: How to best use Pau Gasol

Pau can be effective when he’s not overlapping with LaMarcus Aldridge. Wednesday night’s 101-99 loss to the Rockets exposed a larger problem than three straight home losses: Pau Gasol hasn't fit in with the Spurs yet. While many predicted the mismatch given his defensive limitations, age, and redundancy to LaMarcus Aldridge on offense, the pain from Duncan’s retirement forced people to embrace hiS potential. Gasol still has something left in the tank. But what he can provide is a version of what Aldridge already brings. Gasol has a dependable midrange jumper, crafty post moves, and...

The Spurs’ starting unit has had issues

Through seven games, the Spurs’ starting five hasn’t exactly been killing it. The Spurs have had the decent start to the season. Seven games in, they’re 5-2, including a franchise-record 4-0 start. They blew out the super-team Warriors last month, and Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26 points and five rebounds per game. But that’s about the extent of the good news. ESPN writer Marc Stein tweeted the following yesterday: Something to monitor: In the 113 minutes LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol have played together, San Antonio has been outscored by 25 points.— Marc Stein...
