Amar’e: Pau Gasol ‘is still soft’
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Amar’e Stoudemire, tell us how you really feel.
To make matters worse, Stoudemire went on to say that Pau Gasol’s finesse game isn’t an issue because Los Angeles Lakers like Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom cover him with their length.
Ouch. Talk about an insult.
Here’s my issue: Stoudemire hasn’t won anything in the NBA. He has no rings. Perhaps he should tone down the rhetoric.
Sure, Gasol has a better supporting cast, running with four All-Star calibre players: Ron Artest, Kobe Bryant, Bynum, and Odom. And sure, Gasol isn’t the toughest customer on the low block, either.
However, the purple-and-gold weren’t contenders until they stole the Spanish sensation from the Memphis Grizzlies in a blockbuster trade three years ago.
So he has the upper-hand on Stoudemire. With the Lakers’ soaring, Gasol –soft or not- looks positioned to continue his winning ways this playoffs.
Where will Stoudemire’s New York Knicks finish?
