Pau Gasol has been getting a lot of trade talk lately, and truly feel bad for the power forward. He has basically been shopped his whole career, which is quite an odd thing to say about a two-time champion. If they do trade him, then their chances of contending this year are nil and you can bet that they are in full on tank mode; that would likely not please Kobe Bryant, but the business of basketball can be quite cruel at times, something the shooting guard knows all too well. The business of Jeopardy is not a joke either and the battle of the Decades this week has been a particularly bloodthirsty affair.
If you can’t tell? Watching Jeopardy right now for a bit of background. Would pick the Lakers in this one to cover the spread (-6), but not to win. If they were at home it might be a different story, but the reality is that no point guard on the team can guard Kyrie Irving for any period of time. One more preview coming at you, and then be sure to stop by Prep if you feel so inclined.
