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.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

True and he is rather athletic, but you can only be taught to a certain degree and I don't see that being a high ceiling for Fab. Also he tends to disappear from real interaction in games for stretches, that makes me question commitment.

It is simple as far as Fab goes in my opinion, is he willing to be coached. If he is then he has a very great opportunity being with Doc Rivers and if he does, I can see him being a lot more than he is now.

I much prefer Marc now, and I agree that Pau use to be a beast. To his credit his rebounding actually improved last year, but I still don't think we are going to see the Pau of old. I just don't think the fight is there anymore, but hell it could have just been the situation with the Lakers.

It is just my gut instinct.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

if the T-Wolves were actually dumb enough to trade Love for Pau it would be the greatest day in my life.

They would probably do it for Bynum.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

That'd be a horrible trade as well.

Kevin Love is the 2nd best big man in the NBA. The only big man better than him is Dwight. Love is the best PF in the NBA.

I agree it's a bad deal for Minnesota but some GMs overvalue centers. I love both guys though, and it would be tempting to bring in Bynum if you were given the chance.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Any team trading for Pau with plans of moving him to center, gonna find out quickly they have a problem...


I personally think we are higher on Love than the Wolves are

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

at this point if I was the T-Wolves I'd be trying to broker a deal for Marc Gasol over Pau if they really want a Spanish guy to play with Rubio. although idk if the Grizzlies would trade him.
