All the images of Pau Gasol had been removed -- "ripped down" seems more appropriate considering the remnants of paper and glue still attached to the wall where placards once were.

This wouldn't have seemed all that odd, except that there were still several solo images of lesser former Grizzlies (Dahntay Jones, Lawrence Roberts) adorning the hall ...
