It’s been a couple years, but Gasol is ready for the responsibilities that come his way and reminded doubters that he has been successful when given the opportunity:

“Now with Dwight gone, I am the reference inside and I am more like I was a couple of years back when we made the Finals three straight times and won two straight championships.”
