Kanter is a big bull of a man, strong and thick, and that's how he plays. Gasol is also a bull, but there is a ballet dancer inside who uses footwork, craft and smarts. That's what makes him such a brilliant player -- he can pound opponents or use his size to help create solid scoring or rebounding angles, and then rely on his more graceful gifts to finish the play off.
