Since arriving in Los Angeles to play for the Lakers, Gasol has seen himself become both a hero and a goat. Trade rumors were non-existent when the team was winning championships prior to 2011, but it didn't take long before people began questioning his long-term placement throughout the 2011-12 season.
With Mike D’Antoni in town, and a new system in place, Gasol’s role on the team is more questionable than ever. But scrutiny is something the big man has become used to, as his name has been tossed around in trade talk time and time again since arriving in L.A.
Gasol has been one of the league’s best big men for quite awhile, but not even that has kept him safe from rumors and speculation throughout the years.
