Gasol won’t soon forget

The normally reserved, thoughtful Pau Gasol was downright feisty when asked about the emotions he’ll carry with him from the recently concluded NBA Finals against the Celtics.

Gasol said that the pain from the loss will linger for a long time, as will his memory of Boston fans shaking the Lakers team bus as they drove away from TD Banknorth Arena Tuesday night.

“I’m definitely going to keep these feelings, because it wasn’t pleasant to see all the Boston fans go crazy on us after the game and hitting the bus and all that crap,” he said. “It’s just something I’m going to keep in mind all year long until we get there again.”
