Pau Gasol is revealing himself as a very selfish player
 
Quote:

Pau Gasol on sitting out late in game: "I'm a competitor and think I bring a lot to the table. It's something I don't like & don't appreciate."

This in a game we won? The coach didn't want him chasing Anderson on the 3pt line and it was the right move whether Pau likes it or not..

He wants to be on the court, that is not selfish at all.

Gasol will learn his place in the kobe system and either accept it or be sent to d-league as punishment

This is good. Get him hungry for minutes so he doesn't play like a biitch.

So Jamison is more equipped to defend? One could argue the game might have not gotten as close with Gasol in

No. What's embarrassing is D'Antoni's inability to utilize him effectively.

I did think he should be on the court rather than Jamison, but then Jamison made a clutch play and I forgot about it.

Jamison was in for metta according to MDA. because he didn't want play metta with his 1-8 fg%.

Earl was in for Pau.

yes, its embarrassing.

he can learn from manu who won 4 times off the bench, and shut up.

terry, crawford odom etc.

he is benched cuz he sucks all season, so he needs to get better and prove the coach he worth shit.

Forget the past, Clark has been a MUCH better player than Pau THIS year and it's NOT even close. It'd be one thing if they benched him for a guy who wasn't producing but that's not the case.

The team is demonstrably better with each big having the post to themselves. Either he accepts it or asks for a trade. I am just tired of his bitching. If ****ing Manu can come off the bench for lesser players for the good of the team, it's not too much to ask Pau to do the same. Especially when we're starting a player who is just flat-out better right now!

He should quit complaining. Hes barely playing starting caliber ball in the first place.

He's getting better lately but still needs to prove himself since he sucked the whole season.

Maybe he should have said "ship his ass out" to some randoms in a car park about trading one of his best young teammates for an over-the-hill vet instead.

Re: Pau Gasol is revealing himself as a very selfish player
 
Pau had by far the best +/- tonight at +21 tonight while ALL starters ranged from -3 to -13 (Howard). Pau didn't play at all in the 4th. He has every right to be upset.
