Vanessa Bryant: Kobe's Wife Reportedly Not Involved in Pau Gasol Breakup Rumor
Vanessa Bryant Caused a Rift Between Kobe and Pau?
Those of you who were blaming Vanessa Bryant for the Lakers' untimely demise in this year's playoffs will have to find a brand new scapegoat.
Lakers power forward, Pau Gasol flatly denied the rumors that Vanessa told his fiancee Sylvia Lopez Castro to end their relationship. He told ESPNLosAngeles' Ramona Shelburne that the rumors were: "absolutely false."
"My girlfriend and I are fine, we're happy, we're doing well. Kobe and I are fine," Gasol told Shelburne.
So what's really wrong in Laker land? Why was Gasol playing like a shadow of his former self this postseason?
She [Lopez Castro] was suffering because she saw me suffering. And I was suffering because I was seeing her suffering. When you add that to other stuff to what's already happening, it's tough.
In other words, Gasol claims to have stunk it up because he was just plain slumping. Then it got even worse when the rumors started and his fiancee, who reportedly showed up at STAPLES center for Game 2, got wind of all the "Gasol needs to step it up" talk from the media.
Gotcha, so now we know Gasol is a guy that folds under the pressure of media scrutiny.
You're going to get praise when you're winning and get called out for not coming through, that goes with the territory.
Sounds like it's time to ship him out of Los Angeles if he can't take the heat.
