After the NBA trade deadline, Los Angeles Laker, Pau Gasol, took to YouTube to address the Laker nation about how relieved he is to still be wearing his Laker uniform. Gasol was the talk of many trade rumors by the Lakers when they were trying to make a move to acquire Orlando Magic center, Dwight Howard. Now that the trade deadline is over, Gasol knows he is staying put in Los Angeles but not everyone on the Lakers is. In the video he wishes longtime, former teammates Derek Fisher and Luke Walton well, as they were both traded earlier on Thursday.
It is kind of strange to see a player put a video on YouTube to let out his emotions and address the fans and media, but Pau has been, to say the least, a bit of an emotional wreck these past few weeks. At least now he knows he isn’t leaving L.A. anytime soon and he can get back to doing what he does best – playing basketball, not making YouTube videos.
