Doesn’t take much for Gasol to get emotional.

He needs to get over it, he is the 2nd most tradeable asset the Lakers have behind Andrew Bynum.  This is a business and he should be thanking the Basketball Gods that he was traded to the Lakers in the first place for a pack of doublemint gum.

Bryant believes reports linking Gasol in a trade has made it “an emotional couple of days for him.”

“Personally I don’t understand that crap,” Bryant said regarding the Lakers’ effort to trade Gasol. “But it is what it is. It’s important for him to know we support him. I support him especially. I just want him to go out there and play hard and do what he does best for us.”

Gasol has acknowledged in recent days that he remains uncertain the Lakers will keep him. Though Gasol admitted feeling frustrated over what he described as an “erratic night”, Gasol said that had nothing to do with his standing with the Lakers.

He needs to develop thicker skin.

He collapsed last year and any hope the Lakers have if they do keep him is that he plays at a high level, so get over it.
