The Best Center Alive

by

Guess what, B? I AM da manager.

Just in case you were wondering, it’s Pau Gasol.  He’s the only player in the entire playoffs, active or bounced, averaging 20 and 10.  He has the highest FG% of any player taking 10 or more shots per game in the playoffs.  The only other active player taking at least six free throws a game and making 80% of them is Kobe Bryant.  He’s one of four players with at least thee assists per game, and fewer than three turnovers per game (Jameer Nelson, Paul Pierce, and Derek Fisher are the other three).  He has the highest PER of any active player playing at least 25 minutes.  Perkins and Howard are the only active players averaging more blocks per game.

Makes you want to go out and get some tapas right now, doesn’t it?

    There’s only one center in a McDonald’s commercial with LeBron James and Larry Bird, and that’s the true measure of greatness. What have your precious statistics got to say about a big mac dunk contest?

      I read that Gasol once ate 10,000 Macs Big. Then he went dancing with the 3rd and 4th most beautiful women in the European Union.

      If that’s not the true measure of greatness, then the world is false.

    Gasol’s new nickname: Royale with Cheese!

    The ‘Llama” (and I don’t mean Dali) as he is known in Boston had a big 4th quarter last night!

    Gotta agree with JP though. If and when (keeping fingers crossed) the Llama plays like he dod 2 years ago no worries here.

    President Obama just called Gasol the best big man in the NBA in an interview with Marv Albert. You are best friends with the President of the United States! Go Team Double Dribble!
