I’ve looked at this picture for quite a while now before deciding to post it. I didn’t want to take it out of context. At first I’m thinking, “Maybe it’s a laptop bag.” Then I’m thinking, “Okay, it’s a crappy picture, I don’t think the trim and part of the strap are actually pink; it just looks like they are.” I now realize there’s really no way to defend it. This is a picture of Pau Gasol wearing a purse, and I’m fairly certain the purse has pink trim and a somewhat pink strap.
Gasol’s been called soft before, and it clearly bothers him. He vowed to be more physical this year in the NBA Finals than he was two years ago, and in Game 1 he came out doing just that. He took it to Kevin Garnett the way KG took it to him in 2008 and was even somewhat outspoken about how KG has changed as a player, although the media blew his comments completely out of proportion. The bottom line here is that with the exception of Game 1, you haven’t shown that much toughness, Pau — although the numbers have been there for the most part. If it truly gets under your skin when people call you “soft”, try not to be spotted in public sporting women’s accessories.
