Pau Gasol(notes) is not very good at singing. In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that he is bad at singing and that it is very likely that he will never become a professional singer. If you hop over to TMZ you can enjoy the not-so-smooth sounds of Pau's contributions to a song called "Get It Together." But it is OK that Pau is not a great singer since the track is for UNICEF. Being famous is way more important than sounding good when it comes to charity tunes.
Pau Gasol is not very good at throwing a baseball. It's almost like his build is not the ideal frame for that of a baseball player. Good thing he makes his money shooting hook shots and jumping just high enough to be able to dunk. However, Pau is good at wearing dress pants with Hideo Nomo's old Dodgers jersey. He's very good at that. One of the best.
Pau Gasol is not very good at looking cool while celebrating. To be fair, Pau has only had two chances at being sweet during a championship parade and they were a year apart. Anyone would be rusty if they only tried doing something like this once a year. Practice makes perfect, and he doesn't get to practice that often since he's busy the rest of year.
However, Pau Gasol remains good at a few things including, but not limited to, the following:
All things considered, the Lakers are probably happy with what Pau is good at compared to what he isn't so great at. Especially the basketball part. That seems important.
