He has heard from plenty of Lakers fans happy for his success this season, and he very much appreciates it. Gasol is well aware of the Lakers' ongoing spiral, and he's sorely disappointed that Bryant is missing both chances for them to be on the court together this season. But when asked if he would endorse the Lakers organization to his All-Star center brother who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, Pau offered little reason to believe the fledgling Lakers are on Marc's wish list.

"Marc wants to win a championship," Pau said. "That's what he's looking for. That's what's most important to him. I don't know if you think the Lakers will be in a position to win a championship next year or not. "But he knows what he'll be looking for as a free agent—or maybe he'll stay in Memphis because they have built a very good team already there with some very good pieces. He'll know what he wants, and he will be ready to make his decision." Bleacher Report

After all the days, months and years of trying to block out what hurt his heart, Pau Gasol was the one bringing up all of the trade rumors now. "I'm re-energized. I'm in positions where I'm comfortable and effective, so I make a lot of plays," Gasol said of his wonderful new life as a Chicago Bull instead of a Los Angeles Laker. "And the fact that my name is not on the trade block like it has been for the past three years, that's a factor that's overlooked. "It's huge. It's huge not to have to think about that and have it in the back of your mind constantly. It's nice to have that type of security and comfort." Bleacher Report
