Anyone think playing alongside Dwight will cut into some of Pau's production? I know he played with Bynum in the past, but Dwight definitely takes up a lot more space in the paint and seems to be more active on the boards than Bynum, too. Any slight cause for concern or is Pau good to go as a legit top-10 pick in Roto leagues?

I think his scoring will definitly drop. maybe 12 point game, 8 rebs, 3-4 assists and 1 block.

He'll be consistent but I think howard will get all the points, rebounds, and blocks.

at least four assists when he's only done that one year? Riiiight


The other numbers are fine tho. Bynum is arguably better on offense than Dwight, and I would agree... so I dont think Dwight affects Gasol's points... maybe actually helps.

Gasol is a really safe 2nd round pick. Nothing you're going to be elated for on draft day, but you'll be happy in the end.

This! Gasol is a perennial top 15 player. With a PG genius like Nash feeding him the rock, I expect the shooting efficiency and dimes to shoot up pretty high. My projection: 17.5 PPG 10.1RPG 3.9APG 53% FG 79% FT 1.5 BPG .5SPG 2.0TOs. Dwight is more of a defensive anchor than an offensive workhorse so don't think he hurts Pau's numbers much. With 4 HOFers on the same team, I wouldn't be surprised if they all have great years.

Not like im knocking on Pau here. I am a Lakers fan.

If you guys are saying hes gonna get 17,10, and 4. Wth is Dwight Howard getting? Better numbers? 20,15, and 3 blocks?

So everyone's gonna average a double double?

Pau, Dwight, Nash, and Kobe?

I don't understand how y'all can expect him to score less when he played with Bynum when he definitely clogs the paint more than Dwight. Steve Nash will get both of them easier baskets.

If Dwight wants to win and, to be honest, I am not sure that is his number one priority, he better learn to share the ball and he better learn to take his marching orders from Kobe.

I can see Kobe at 24, Dwight 20, Pau 15 and Nash 10. That would be 69 points.

23 points / 13 rebounds / 6 assists / 3 blocks

Can Dwight and Pau co-exist after all? He's been going 2nd and 3rd round in my drafts. A steal if he continues production like this.

He played with Andrew Bynum who has a superior post than Dwight.

I dont think we can expect these numbers on a nightly basis but its clear Pao will be just fine with Dwight in L.A. If anything it may help his assist total with Pau being able to dump it down to Dwight. Pao fell to me in the 3rd round (9th pick, 12 team league) so obviously I'm hoping these numbers continue.

Of course he can. There was always no doubt in my mind he could still be a fantasy stud. Dwight never worried me one bit since Bynum was actually worse for Gasol than Dwight. Helps his assists too.

I saw he hit a 3 pointer, is that to be expected or more of a fluke?

Pau will be fine. His stats will look like Vlade in his prime, which were pretty good. Less rebs, more assists. He could average close to 4.8 asst for the season. Huge for a C.

This "newer" version of Pau where he works more from the mid-range and even extended out to the 3PT line is nice for fantasy owners but seriously he has really destroyed his offensive arsenal with these moves. He used to be an absolute monster on the block that always kept defender's off balance with a variety of pivots and fakes - now all he does is take a fade-away jumper or a sweeping hook across the lane. I think it has also effected his inside the paint toughness as well as he is treating the ball like a loaf of bread every time he's under the basket trying to gently put it though the hoop. Obviously Pau has never been that type of player to try and rip down the rim but look at any of his play from his first year with the Lakers and before and he was much more stout in the paint. Pau seriously leaves about 4PPG/3RPG out on the court every game because he isn't finishing strong.
