Re: *Jermaine O'neal or Paul Gasol* POLL

It's basically a wash. Maybe I give the edge to Jermaine because of his defense, but Gasol has the edge on offense.

but the whole thread is funny , oneal is a dominant player

pau has never even been an allstar

there really is no comparison.
C'mon, there are only a handful of dominant players in the league, and Jermaine O'Neal isn't close to being one of them.

Just waive a Pistons jersey at him, and then watch him go 2-11.

by the same token you can wear a suns jersey and gasol will let you score all night out of sheer fright.

a right handed guy who cant use his right hand because of a bum shoulder.

gasol in a similar situation doesn't get in the gym let alone play.

thats why one guy is soft and the other one isn't.

i haven't yet heard a good explaination for gasol's 7.3 rebound avg.

o'neal had 8.8 but the previous 3 years he was in double figures...he can rebound , he had a bad year in the dept.

gasol avg. 7.7 the year before ...its not a bad year for him ...it who he is.

Bump

Just because some say JO was not injury prone.

Bumps are precious. By the way, Jermaine has missed a tons of ball games this season... again.

Gasol has made big strides defensively in my opinion, he uses his length a lot more effectively nowadays. And he is still the better offensive player.

As far as JO, the guy is never playing so there isn't much to say about him.

JO plays like 40 games a year now lol
He's played 40 this and last season, but before his 2-3 fluke injuries, he always played near full seasons...when he wasn't rotting on Portland's bench.

I'd still rather have Jermaine. Much, much closer than I would've thought 2 years ago, though. If Jermaine wouldn't be such a ***** on offense and actually try to box out, this would be a lot easier.

Re: *Jermaine O'neal or Pau Gasol* POLL

I believe Gasol is a bit underrated because of the Hubie Brown 10-man rotation he played in for a couple of years. He was ready to take steps towards becoming a go-to guy, but Hubie's rotation stifled him a bit. I would take Gasol over O'Neil based on having more upside. Jermaine, while already very good, isn't going to get any better. Gasol will.

Give me Pau... Everyone is saying that Pau would be better if he was the main guy. Well, we are starting a new franchise, and we are choosing who we'd start with of the two... So I would definitely take Pau. He takes good shots almost everytime, he doesn't force it, and he can pass. His D isn't that bad. JO tends to fadeaway and jack up shots too much.

Give me Jermaine. He is a 5-time all-star and has co-led his team to the NBA finals. Also, consistent 20-10-2blocks player. I would rather have Jermaine on defense as well.
