Redemption for Pau Gasol?

Pau Gasol, with some help from his brother Marc and Juan Carlos Navarro, has led Spain to the title game of the European Championships. Spain meets France in the final Sunday after Pau scored 22 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in a 92-80 semifinal victory today over Macedonia. France, led by Tony Parker, defeated Russia in the other semifinal, 79-71. The question is, has Pau redeemed himself after a brutal showing in the Lakers’ second-round playoff loss to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks? He has had one monster game after another during Eurobasket and has Spain positioned to win its second consecutive championship. But is it enough for Lakers fans to embrace him again?

Just asking.
