Could Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol being “whipped” have cost the Lakers the series against the Dallas Mavericks? It’s pretty lame when you think about it. Rumors have been making their way around mainstream that Gasol’s breakup with Sylvia Lopez Castro caused the 7 footer to deliver a lackluster performance against the Mavericks.
Rumors speculate that Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, played a significant role in the breakup (see number 5 on this list). No specific details have been released at this time. However, one thing is for sure. Gasol and Lopez are no longer together and the LA Lakers are off to an early vacation. Guess I’ll be seeing Kobe and Vanessa around Fashion Island in Newport pretty soon.
As much as I doubt it, if the rumors are true, then Gasol needs to build a bridge and get over it or the Lakers will be up for more ass whoopings in the future. If he continues to let his emotions reflect on the court, he might as well go back to medical school. Seriously, losing the series all because of a girl? “C’mon Man.”
UPDATE: May 11th,2011 10AM:
Here we go again. Looks like Khloe and Lamar Kardashian won’t be the only reality stars in the Staples Center this upcoming fall. This story is still developing, but rumors have surfaced that Vanessa Bryant is planning a reality TV show, and the supposed drama between Vanessa Bryant and Sylvia Castro Lopez might have been concocted to create a possible storyline for the show. If all these rumors are true, I hope this “storyline” was worth risking the 3-Peat.
