All indications are that Pau Gasol is headed for Los Angeles. Is Gasol the Lakers ticket to another NBA Championship? He certainly fits their situation. With Andrew Bynum out, Gasol will be counted on to help fill the center spot. When Bynum returns, finding another place for Gasol shouldn’t be a problem.
The Lakers can certainly use the help. Trailing the Phoenix Suns in their division, Los Angeles will need everything they can get for the final run to the playoffs. Having both Bynum and Gasol will help. Is it enough? We’ll see.Eric Drouant
