I know the resemblance isn’t uncanny, but I can’t help seeing Aesop Rock in my mind every time Pau Gasol gets his mug on TV. It might just be the Castaway facial hair or the lanky white boy look, but they are one and the same to me. I recently saw Aes Rock live, and I had to fight the urge to ask him his thoughts about the upcoming Lakers season. Just imagine if their skill sets were combined. You’d have a 7-footer who could nail a baby hook AND pen a rhyme on the postmodern condition in intensely personal verbiage. Talk about a double threat.
