What Is Wrong With Pau Gasol?

Pau Gasol should dunk it and get angry. With Artest and Bynum playing inconsistently, Pau needs to step up for the Lakers to win a championship. Against, Toronto he missed an easy layup that he could have easily dunked.

Pau is one of the most talented big men in the NBA. But right now he doesn't look happy. Against the Raptors, he picked up a technical because he thought he got fouled.

Pau is in a slump. He had another bad shooting night against Toronto. He shot 4 from 11; he also shot 5 from 14 against Charlotte.

Pau has so much talent, but he needs to play harder. I know he isn't an aggressive player, but he can't afford to get pushed around all the time. 

Pau normally plays a lot better than he is right now. Pau seems to disappear during games, he looks slow in the post, and he needs to keep running the floor.

He is one of the most versatile players in the NBA for a 7-footer, and I know he will improve, but right now he is struggling.

Pau is shooting a pretty mediocre 51 percent from the field this year; that isn't a very good percentage for a 7-footer.

Pau is complaining about not getting the ball in the post; well guess what, Pau? First, you need to hit a few shots.
