Lakers center Pau 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.  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, ahead of the game against the Cavaliers at Staple Center. “I try not to put any thoughts into it. I’m just focusing and worried about this (injury) so I always have plenty of things in my mind that stop me from thinking of other stuff.”
