GIF: Pau Gasol Gets Burned Playing ‘Doggy Paddle’ Defense

It is officially Pau Gasol Week here at Midwest Sports Fans.

Yesterday, after re-setting my lineup for this weekend’s DraftStreet freeroll tournament (click here to join here for free), I counted down the 22 most unintentionally hilarious pictures of the famously photogenic Gasol.

I had no intention of posting again about Gasol today, because I was Gasol-ed out after yesterday and because a Spaniard playing in Los Angeles doesn’t exactly scream “Midwest,” but after stumbling upon the animated GIF below what choice did I have?

Behold, the greatness of Paul Gasol playing defense against Blake Griffin:

There are so many things I could say about this GIF (including that I’d love to see whatever thunderous dunk Blake Griffin threw down), but in lieu of that I’m just going to watch it 17 more times and chuckle heartily to myself as Gasol attempts to perfect the doggy-paddle defense.

Pau, you da man.

  1. This would be a completely different post if he was playing "doggy style" defense

  2. He thought griffin double dribbled right before this clip starts. If you had watched the game you’d know. So much for context.

  3. Howdy! I simply want to give a huge thumbs up for the great info you will have here on this post. I will likely be coming back to your weblog for extra soon.
