Media Day: Pau Gasol, Jordan Farmar

My last installment of talkies...

First, you got your Pau Gasol vids. His finger feels good and there's no fatigue after an offseason of international play on the heels of a long playoffs. El Spaniard is ready for the Lakers' title defense and plans to channel his inner "Temple of the Dog" in an effort to secure that objective.

"We've got to stay hungry. Hungrier than the rest of the teams that didn't win it last year and want it really bad, too. That's the key."

Pau talks about the toughness Ron Artest brings to the table. That physicality is certainly welcome, but he disputes any notion that it was previously "missing," even during the '08 campaign. Mostly, he just sees Ron Ron as a guy who'll add to what they already have.

Along these lines, I talked a bit with Pau about his role during the playoffs (and in particular, during the Finals against Dwight Howard) as a defensive presence, a description that's typically alluded him over the course of his career. While I've often felt Gasol's D took more flak than deserved (For all the talk about Gasol getting pushed around against Boston- and it did happen at times- he often made scoring just as difficult for Tim Duncan, Carlos Boozer and especially Kevin Garnett.), Pau's admission that he didn't always prioritize D certainly caught my ear. Safe to say, these recent playoffs were a learning experience for him on that end.

Andrew Kamenetzky: Along the lines of the toughness referenced before, what did it meant to you personally to not only win a title, but to have won it by playing defense and exhibiting a toughness that had been questioned?

Pau Gasol: I was happy that I could help a lot more defensively and my team relied on me defensively to guard the top scorers, inside presences, on the other team. That was a challenge, obviously. Something that I didn't really have to do before much. That I maybe didn't think maybe was that important. But it was key and I was proud to help my team defensively as well as offensively.

From there, our conversation continued on the clip below...

Jordan Farmar's clip begins with him referencing extension talks between the Lakers and his agent. "It's my career. It's their future," noted Farmar while expressing pleasure with the conversation's fluidity and tone. Personally, I'd be stunned if anything was actually inked, and should my instincts prove correct, Farmar didn't seem too worried over the lack of long term security. (It helps that Mitch Kupchak told him that numerous trade offers were nixed.) Ditto the potential situation where he, Derek Fisher and Shannon Brown are all playing for new contracts- and minutes- at the same position. "You can't really think about that. You just play basketball and the other stuff works itself out."

That carefree attitude shouldn't be confused with indifference towards grabbing the starting lead guard spot for the Lakers, which he labeled "best job in the League." Tearing that title from Fish's not-so-cold-and/or-dead hands won't be easy, so Farmar is prepared to scrap. "It's not going to be given to me."

LAKERS TODAY LAKERS TOMORROW LAKERS FOREVER

Eric Pincus at Hoopsworld.com said he spoke with Andrew Bynum at yesterday's media day. The brace Andrew is talking about is the same one he wore in the playoffs. I hope that is either a misprint or a misunderstanding on Eric's part.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing Pau add to his already impressive resume this season.

VIVA PAU !!!

the Lakers destiny and dynasty changed in an immeasurable positve direction the minute Pau Gasol became a Laker, and will continue to do so as long as he remains one...

VIVA PAU !!!

I am real curious and hopefull to see what kind of year Farmar has---guess that's true for Artest, Bynum, Shasha, Brown, and Morrison...

still hoping we can keep Gelebale---got a real good feeling about him deep in my bowels and you know what that means...

ring night is going to be so frickin' cool...

is it next Wednesday yet?

GO LAKERS !!!

SORRY KAMBROTHERS, BOY THIS APOLOGY IS GOING BE A WHOPPER!
MAMBA24

You can't claim the Mailman OR the Glove. And if you started with Mikan, how come his number isn't retired?

Mamba: I TOLD YOU 9 days was too long! Way to get in gear!

Jordan Farmar: If you are reading this for any reason, let me grant you some sage pearls of wisdom:

S T F U AND PLAY!

That is all.

I find it interesting that the Roll Call brings me so much joy.

What a great way to start the day.

The Year of Domination begins with Love.

And love makes haters cringe and run screaming into the darkness.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

Mamba: Allow me to submit a revision of a line in the Laker Pledge of Allegiance.

Instead of "We Claim a Glove, A Mailman, A Logo, and a Beast," say "We Borrowed A Glove, We Had A Mailman on Lease. We Created A Logo & We're Building A Beast."

That is all...

I think Owenfromburbank and 1AndDone31-92 should go out on a date.

Hey Mamba 24: head of the Mamba clan,

That roll call was sweeettt!

Jon K.

What's up my brother. I read your comments daily and I still love the reports from behind enemy lines the best.

Yoohoo! It's on now.... Lakers are going 74-8 this season with a 16-0 playoff run that ends in another ring. As Jon says What do we play for? RINGS!!!

utz - sorry but I'm married.
And I wouldn't say one and done quite yet. If you win this year - which you may do - I will admit you are a dynasty. If you lose - which you may do - wouldn't that make you, too one and done?
btw - I can live with "borrowed a glove and a mailman"!! That was very clever, whoever thought of that. Kudos to them!!

"I think Owenfromburbank and 1AndDone31-92 should go out on a date."

No way. That leads to the possibility of breeding baby trolls. Full grown trolls are small and annoying enough as it is. Full blooded baby trolls? I shudder at the thought.

Mamba24, Seeing a new roll call again just makes my day. It's been way too long. Thanks!

It's only the first day of camp. No need for bloggers to diss Jordan Farmar today. A reminder that last year, he was a huge hero coming out of camp and pretty much stayed that way till his injury. His cockiness seems to offend people, when the only thing that really matters is how he contributes. If he doesn't contribute, he will be gone or at a minimum find himself at the end of the bench. Let these things write themselves.

Our next great adventure as Lakers fans is just beginning. We have a lot to be hopeful about. I'm excited. I plan to stay that way. Go Lakers!

Update,

Lakers sign guard Thomas Kelati

Associated Press
