Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
Very decent lineup though Pau's game has diminished in a lot of ways, in my opinion; it will definitely improve the Timberwolves.
he was the third option this year and his PPG went down like 1 point. The guy is still an absolute beast, except in the playoffs, and I still like him. He just doesn't work on the Lakers. With a great PG like Rubio he could probably easily get 20 PPG with a proper pick and roll. He would also benefit a lot by playing alongside Love since Love would be the one spacing the floor with Pau having his back to the basket. That's just a deadly combo, not only that, but he can also spread the floor which gives Rubio room to drive in. TWolves would be scary with Pau, right now they're not very scary. Peko is good and all, but he is more of a defensive guy and doesn't bring nearly everything that Pau does.
