Pau Gasol and Pau Gasol had played for Grizzlies before, and they swapped for each other in the same deal: the Lakers traded for Pau Gasol and gave him the right to sign the draft, then Pau Gasol won the championship trophy in the second and third season of the Lakers, while Pau Gasol and his younger brother entered the NBA and quickly grew into a first-line center to help Ashes. Bears complete rapid reconstruction.
In the 11 years of Grizzliesservice, Gasol Jr. has been selected for a while as an all-star starting center and the best defensive player. But in Grizzlies, it is difficult for him to win a title. With the decline of his physical fitness, Gasol Jr. has also been regarded as a premium contract. With Grizzlies entering the next stage of reconstruction, it is not necessary for Grizzlies to have this veteran, and Gasol Jr. is finally released. The shelves were exchanged for the Raptors, only for Valancunas, Miles, Drone Wright and a future second round.
But Pau Gasol made up the last shortboard of the Raptors and broke out much stronger in the playoffs than in the regular season. His veteran experience helped the Raptors and finally won the championship they had dreamed of.
