Remember....his older, more injury prone and could just be looking to pad his bank account before his time is up. Most likely the Spurs will not overpay like 29 other teams. If we can win the championship...hopefully that'll sway us a key addition.
Yes, I hope so too but I beg to differ about the Knicks and their cap space cause they are not going to be free of cap hell till the 2016 season depending on what Melo does obviously. And no Melo, no Gasol. This playoffs will tell the tale how successful the Spurs can really be or how much he could help the Spurs vs. another team. Either way, the Spurs should have enough money to entice him just like they did with Bellinelli (even though he probably would have been starting for the Bulls this last year and turned down more money elsewhere vs. the Spurs) along with the winning culture that most Euros want to be a part of.
And I don't see Gasol being a player to just pad his bank account type of guy and not have pride or the desire to get on the court. He isn't going to be a Steve Nash in my opinion.
