That's a picture of Pau, not Marc. Marc is #13 for Spain; Pau is #4.

I never knew Pau and Marc are twins.
Quite uncanny.

Yeah yah sorry, changed to marc cuz otherwise its no contest, even without any Laker bias.

But alas I'm unable to change photo due to lack of access...pretend its Marc.

Steve Sax said...

But it's Pau!

Yeah that picture is still Pau.

I'm surprised Smits only averaged 6 boards per for his career.
