So if you’ve followed the Lakers at all over the past couple of months, you know that Matt Barnes has been trying to fill the enforcer roll in Los Angeles.

Barnes even went as far as to release a shirt (through his company Elusion Clothing) that noted: “Matt Barnes Will Kill You, If Ron Artest Doesn’t First.”

But as Jason Terry noted earlier in the year, after a little scuffle with Barnes, Steve Blake and Co., the Lakers aren’t exactly known as a scrappy bunch … particularly in these playoffs.

Last month, Terry called Barnes “as soft as Charmin toilet paper.”

And in these playoffs, many have started questioning Pau Gasol’s toughness all over again.

In honor of all this “tough” talk, BallHyped.com has released its first t-shirt:

“Pau Gasol will kill you (with kindness) if Papa Smurf doesn’t first!”

You have to admit, Pau does have a little Papa in him.
