Watch Gasol on the bench. Any other player who wasn't a media darling would be getting destroyed for that body language lol

Yep, and 7/7/7 with only 20 minutes played. D'antoni needs to take a page out of Phil Jackson's book and actually coach and manage egos in the NBA. Let's not get it twisted coaching is managing egos in this diva driven league.

Pau deserves better. I hope the Lakers trade him by the deadline.

Poor guy has to deal with Kobe's ego,D'Antoni's stupidity and Dwight's immaturity.

Just trade him somewhere where he can play like a great player he is.

Howard at the 4th had 0pts, 2 rebounds (total 4), 2 blocks, 0 assists and a -5. Why again was he in and Pau on the bench for the whole 4th?

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

This.

Kobe said that about Gasol tonight. Gasol is right, he should be closing out games.

But if Gasol is still sour about not starting, then he's an idiot. Clearly this system is working with him off the bench, so he should accept it.

That was then and this is now.

It's Pau's responsibility to adjust. He's a All Star level player and should have the talent to do so. He's past 30 years old. Jordan readjusted his game to be a jump shooter why couldn't Pau find some new niche within the team?

Everybody gets on D'Antoni's defensive strategies...so when he benches Pau in the 4th for Earl Clark ( who is playing out of his mind and can stay with Ryan Anderson around the 3 pt line) everybody's all up in arms?

Can't he see that Earl Clark works better with Howard? And Pau on the bench actually makes our bench decent and they get to run the offense through him?

COME ON PAU

You meant the Howard system right?

The system were Howard plays like he always played, gets more touches, and were Kobe had to reinvent himself to please the alpha male (Howard).
