Of course there is. Pau (Lakers) and Marc (Grizz) - Pau has more epxerience. I want to see them this playoff playing against each other.
Definitely didn't think the Grizz would beat the Spurs. I really don't think they'll Beat OK. I think I'd rather see LA vs OK than the Gasols face off.
It's certainly a possibility at this point. In fact, it's what I'd like to see as a Laker fan. I'm just not sure how likely it is at this point. The Lakers however are not off to an ideal start in their series against Dallas. They essentially gave that game away on many accounts and will now have an uphill battle to get past this round.
On the other hand, the Grizzlies continue to surprise with their great team play and with their win in game one against the Thunder. Unless the Grizzlies continue to play perfect basketball like they did in game one, I'm not sure the Grizzlies will ultimately be able to overcome what I believe will be a one-sided officiated matchup in favor of the Thunder.
With all that said, although unlikely at this point, a Gasol v. Gasol matchup would be very interesting. Remember the two brothers were traded for one another between their respective teams in a trade that many believed at the time was one of the most lopsided trades in NBA history. Pau was a multi-time all-star entering the prime of his career and his little brother Marc was entirely unknown, unproven, and unheralded prospect in the NBA circles. The matchup would also be interesting to see if it would get physical with so much at stake, especially considering Pau is often criticized in one game for not being physical enough and then tries to make up for it in the next.
That sucks last night, Kobe was frustrated but he is not perfect, they gave that away really!
Pau can't be physical bec. think his body frame is not built for it, tall and lanky!
Things will be clearer after two more games! Even the East (Miami/Celtics) is getting exciting! Atl won last night too!
Pau doesn't have to be physical per se in terms of his strength, but he needs to take the ball to the basket if he's not able to establish good post position rather than just standing around, taking 18-19 foot jump shots, or taking 16 foot fade-aways. Dunking the ball from a foot away would also be preferred rather than attempting a layup and getting it blocked. He also needs to work a little harder to establish that post position.

Having thoroughly dominated San Antonio in Game 4 last night, the Grizz are one victory away from sending Tim Duncan and company home for the summer,http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/20 … the-ropes/What do you think?

Can the struggling Celtics and Lakers make the playoffs this year ?I believe so...... It's just painful to watch right now I have to say! But yet I remain optimistic about these teams.

I think the Mavs really earned it, 2-0, as of today May 5. Dirk is hard to stop. Plus Only three NBA teams have come back to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first two at home. They are in the same situation with the Celtics.This is an interesting read...
