BSO’s Resident NBA Expert EXCLUSIVE – The Truth Behind Pau Gasol Drama

Ever since the Lakers were shockingly swept out of the playoffs by the Dallas Mavericks, people have been wondering what exactly happened to rattle this team so badly. It’s not often that you see a defending champion go out in such stunning fashion, and many believe that there had to be something going on in the locker room that was causing the Laker players to lose focus on their goal.

Laker center Andrew Bynum pretty much told us what we knew all along when he said the Lakers had “trust issues” after a Game 2 home loss saw Los Angeles heading to Dallas down 0-2.

The main target of the speculation was Lakers All-Star Pau Gasol, one of the premier bigs in the NBA who never did show up during these playoffs. Gasol’s numbers dipped dramatically amid speculation that he had a confrontation with an unnamed teammate who’s wife had broken up Gasol’s engagement to Silvia Lopez Castro.

Of course, any time you hear “Lakers” and “internal strife” the first person that comes to mind is Kobe Bryant. While he may be an assassin on the court, Kobe isn’t necessarily the most street smart player in the league, and has been known to break a “Man Law” on occasion. So naturally, many have assumed that Kobe told his wife Pau had a girl on the side and Vanessa Bryant caused the rift by telling Ms. Castro, thus leading to her breaking off their engagement and Pau playing softer than cotton candy.

If you are one who believes that story then congratulations you are wrong! Well, sort of.  After speaking to sources very close to multiple NBA locker rooms and specifically the Lakers locker room, here is the worldwide exclusive of what really happened, remember where you heard it first!

The Gasol-Castro relationship is definitely on the rocks as their engagement has been put off for now, and it definitely played into the surprising decline in numbers and confidence that we saw from Pau throughout the playoffs.

However, surprisingly it isn’t Kobe and Vanessa who are behind the rift, although they do have a part in it. In fact it is a bench player for the Lakers who may have cost the team a chance at a three-peat.

The word I’m getting is that Shannon Brown, yes the same Shannon Brown who is married R&B singer Monica, slept with Castro during the season, and the affair was discovered by Gasol towards the end of the regular season.

The confrontation we’ve been hearing about did indeed take place, but it was between Gasol and Brown, who nearly came to blows in the locker room and caused a rift that the Lakers were never able to recover from.

The word is that Mrs. Bryant and Ms. Castro engaged in a bit of a cat fight, that ultimately led to Castro saying that Vanessa sleeps around, and Mrs. Bryant basically announcing to anyone who would listen that Castro is really the one sleeping around, specifically with Brown.

That’s right Laker fans, the reason your team is home right now instead of heading towards a Finals series with Lebron and Co. could very well be Shannon Brown.

While many may believe this to be nothing more than gossip, remember where you heard it first when Brown is traded or let go during the off-season.

  • What do you expect…Brown is a dirty jew afterall.

    • What does that mean u fucking idiot?

  • LOL!


    LOL! If anyone buys this we’ll find out soon enough

    • If anyone buy this…they are just as silly as the ones who believed Melo and the illegimate child, the lady putting the book out about them, Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union alligations. etc. Give it up.

      • Wait now, Melo DOES have an illegitimate child other than Kiyan. That’s a fact.

  • This is PURE comedy! LOL. No one cheated with anyone. EVERYONE on this squad will have their name thrown into something before it is over…newsflash: maybe Gasol just played sucky. Furthermore, he SAID himself that it had nothing to do with anyone on the team and him and his girl are still together. Also, you are becoming the Mediatakeout of sports news. Do better.

  • Oh and the reason the baby mama was brought up is because shehas been known to give her “stories” to “NBA sources” she was a crafty groupie. And no “source” is going to tell you she got this news from a disgruntled baby mama. She is no stranger to this stuff…even her friends put a warning to bloggers like yourself.

    • I agree, and I’ve heard stories about his crazy baby mama. But my source got the news directly from inside the locker room from people who witnessed it. Again, your choice to believe or not, and for the record I’m a die-hard Laker fan not just a hater trying to tear em down haha

      • Your people who “witnessed it.” I want to believe your are some “real reporter” but I see that is not the case. In this day and age where racy stories prove more exciting than the truth..where in this case is…the Lakers did not shop up at all..some more than others, people chose to go with something they will believe will sell and be more appealing. Hell maybe Pau’s girl and him where having issues and we do not even know what they are. At the end of the day, your source in the locker room witness or not, does not prove much to most people who have sense. Furthermore, ALL the teammates have said it had nothing to do with them and their personal lives. Bynum even said this that they all love each other…it was mis-communications on the court.

  • It is sad that this is suppose to be a sports blog because you are worse then Mediatakeout. Stop making up story about the reasons the Lakers lost. It simple their defense was crappy, no one included Kobe was consistent in any of the games. Stop spreading vicious rumors about Shannon Brown, Kobe & Vanessa Bryant, and Pau Gasol.

    • Exactly! My comments in a nutshell. Stop talking about your sources…and locker room stories. Your sources no matter how “trusted” are making this up and your are simply spreading vicious lies about people and their families and loved ones. Truth: the Lakers lost..spotty shooting, weak defense etc. Stop hunting around for some “juicy” way to get your name in the headlines. You have truly become the mediatakeout of sports, and they say they have unnamed sources close to the situation as well, who are telling the truth. *blankstare*

      • I’m going to have to agree with these people. Really seems like someone woke up and made this all up. I’d hardly consider this blog a news source and by hardly I mean “I wouldn’t because its not.” Irresponsible journalism but I cringe and referring to any of this as journalism.
