Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Pau Gasol spoke with reverence, admiration and love about his teammate and friend Kobe Bryant on Friday ...
“It’s just a tough hit, tough blow for everyone and for the ones who love him and have a great respect for him, even more,” Gasol said with tears in his eyes. “So it’s a difficult time. I feel for him.
“It’s hard for me to see him like that. He doesn’t deserve it … I hate that it happened to him. He works so hard. He’s the most dedicated guy that I ever met and he had the courage and the strength to talk to (the media). I don’t know if I could have done it. So, again that’s very remarkable.”
"It was incredible that he was able to walk it off without help to the bench and he wanted to shoot the two free throws, made those two free throws with a torn Achilles, probably. So, again, just incredible the type of person, the type of player he is."
