Pau Gasol Does His Best Wolverine Impression
Total Pro Sports – Today has everyone debating about whether Pau Gasol should have been called for goaltending on Courtney Lee’s final shot of regulation in the Lakers game 2 overtime victory over the Orlando Magic. If you ask me, I think the play was okay, and I have proof. Surely Wolverine (Gasol) would have tore the net up if he really did get a good piece of the basket.
With the game tied and only 0.6 seconds left on the clock, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy devised a brilliant play that would leave Lee with an open backdoor ally-op layup. Unfortunately he missed it by quite a substantial margin and his team would go on to lose in overtime 101-96. The win now gives Wolverine and his teammates a commanding 2-0 series lead headed to Orlando for the next three games.
Someone may have to call Magneto to stop Kobe Bryant, Gasol and the rest of the Lakers. Even the Candyman, Lamar Odom, was firing on all cylinders. I guess Superman (Dwight Howard) is no match for the X-Men. If he is, he’s running out of time to prove it.
