Pick Bynum.. check!
Pick Gasol.. checking..
Like Dirk, I admire Pau and other foreign players who change the game. I am happy to see them succeed in the NBA, especially with Pau earning the two rings he deserve. I pity the guy though. He has received a lot of criticism in this series. Mistakes at the end of Game 1. Boos from the crowd in Game 2. Scolding from Coach Phil in Game 3. I mean, lay off the guy's back, you ungrateful Lakers' fans! He has kept the same intensity he has since the New Orleans series and almost averages double-double in this Dallas series. It's not as if he has to carry the load by himself. Yes he made mistakes, but you can say the same thing and more with Phil, Kobe and the rest of the Lakers.

Forced to produce or motivated by the challenge, he should be able to go down fighting. We must assume a sweep coming so use your best remaining Laker. Good luck!
