Even Pau said recently he doesn't want to be in the low post that much because of his knees and lack of explosiveness.
You have a link? Because that's the exact OPPOSITE of what I've been hearing all along (that Pau wants the ball back in the post where he's most effective).

To be clear, if doctors say that Pau's knees are fucked then I agree in pulling the plug.... but if that's being overblown right now just to sit him and start Jamison for a while... then I think he could be Godsend for us here in T.O.

A legit post option would be just what the doctor ordered for us.

I can dream can't I?
