The Triangle: On Gasol, long term outlooks, and Rapid Fire!

By Brian Kamenetzky

Three topics this week, fielded by the Kamenetzky Brothers and ESPNLA's Ramona Shelburne:

1. After two bad games starting the postseason, is there reason to be concerned about Pau Gasol?

2. Would a long, physical, drawn out first round series against New Orleans have repercussions down the road?

3. Rapid Fire! We whip through your questions from the Land O'Lakers Mailbag and our Twitter feed.

For the record, the stat I'm referencing- inelegantly- in the first question regarding Gasol is efficiency differential, quantified here.
