Pro A : Pau lance idéalement sa saison: En disposant d'Orléans (72-60), Pau Lacq Orthez a commencé idéalement ... bit.ly/1sASRr6

Claude Bergeaud a mis Léopold Cavalière (18 ans) dans son 5 et fait jouer Kaba et Carne (18 ans aussi). Et Pau a battu Orléans. #ClapClap

Arash Markazi

Of course in 2008 Phil Jackson was the coach, Kobe Bryant was in his prime and they traded for Pau Gasol and Trevor Ariza during the season.

Mike Trudell

Part of that plan w/roster flexibility harkens back to LAL making that midseason trade for Pau in 08, which seemed to come out of nowhere.

Arash Markazi

Kupchak is comparing this season to going into the 2008 season when Kobe wanted to leave and they traded for Pau and made the Finals.

Javier Gancedo

Es curioso. David Andersen está acabadisimo en los ojos de muchos aficionados, Pau Gasol está en su mejor momento... y tienen la misma edad
