07:33 AM ET 01.15 | Forgive Pau Gasol if, this time of year, he's trying to stay away from the news. [Gasol] was at the musical The Lion King last week when he turned his phone on during intermission. It was full of texts and tweets about him being traded to the Cavaliers. Obviously, that didn't happen. Instead, the Cavs traded Andrew Bynum and three draft choices to Chicago for Luol Deng. Now, Gasol said, he's more worried about his sore left big toe than what might have happened. "It could have been that way, for sure," Gasol said after the Lakers' shootaround on Tuesday. ... "It would have been weird. It would have been a process -- just like it would if it happened with any other team. Then so quickly come back to the home that has been your home so long, and then it's not your home any more, it would have been weird."
