Pau Gasol: Breakup Causing Los Angeles Lakers Playoff Problems?
Pau Gasol Struggling Both On And Off The Course?
Things may have gone from bad to worse for all Star power forward Pau Gasol, and in turn the Los Angeles Lakers.
Last night, the Lakers fell again to the Dallas Mavericks and now trail three-games-to-none in their Western Conference Semi-Finals series.
Worse new may have come this morning, as reports have surfaced that Gasol and longtime girlfriend and fiancée, Silvia Lopez, broke up two weeks ago because of teammate-related drama.
According to MediaTakeout.com a Laker “insider” said,
"Pau thinks that [TEAMMATES] wife was behind it. Sylvia didn't have many friends and he's convinced that [wife] either is behind it, or could have talked Sylvia out of it." And word is that when Pau's TEAMMATE [the husband] tried to talk to Pau about it, the two got into an ARGUMENT - with each saying some very RECKLESS THINGS about each others LADIES.”
The identity of the teammate remains to be discovered. But if it turns out to be someone the Lakers don’t want to part with, could the Lakers deal Gasol away?
LA gave the seven-foot Spaniard a contract extension in December 2009, extending his deal through the 2013-14 season.
Given the club’s interest in free agent to-be Dwight Howard, the fact that Gasol has become a scapegoat for the Lakers playoff struggles, and this recent story don't be surprised to see the club at least consider dealing Gasol.
