Default Pau's Ego... Why won't he just say let Clark start?

During the 2008-2009 Laker season Walton was our starter until he sacrificed his starting role for the good of the team. He went to Phil and told him to start Ariza because he saw he was doing things that he couldn't do but things that needed to be done for the team. We all know how that turned out...

So lets fast forward to 2013... Pau ruins the spacing for our starting lineup, is slower because of age & coming off of an injury, does not play like a stretch 4, and is effecting us defensively. The team started clicking without him and chemistry finally started to develop while he was on the sidelines. Clark brings exactly what we need to the starting lineup and the team was winning. After a win against the Hornets earlier in the season Pau complained that he wasn't on the floor for the final minutes and this is a game we won!!!!! The only area we need Pau for is size off the bench for Dwight. And when Hill comes back we won't even need him for that. His ego will ultimately ruin the Lakers this season unless Dantoni brings him off the bench himself.

Kinda shocking considering how he vanished in 2 straight playoffs and has been playing like shit for a while but getting minutes because of his reputation.

Kobe needs to tell this scrub to shut the **** up and play for his 18 million dollars, or get traded/amnestied.

Lakers starting Clark, and with Gasol having a minor role is a mediocre team and first round exit at best. But if the Lakers manage to retrieve the best version of Pau they will be contenders again.

The best version of Pau is a dominate post player that actually gives an effort on both defense & offense. And guess what the Lakers don't need that anymore from him we have Dwight!!!! The best version of Pau was a Center and we should not expect to have two Centers starting. Pau is only needed to back up Dwight. We could actually have two dominate teams if Pau accepts his role

Dwight/Pau
Clark/Jamison
Artest would play some with the bench while Jamison plays with the starters.
Kobe/ Meeks
Nash/ Blake

Starting Clark isn't gonna fix anything, he might stretch the floor, but that's about it.

Clark has been very inconsistent for the past month or so, Gasol just rejoined the team and has played just 1 game and people are already bitching. Just stfu.

Have you been watching the Lakers this year??? Pau & Dwight can't play together and since the All-star break Dwight has been better than Pau has been in the past 2 years. Clark compliments Dwight much better than Pau.

Clark used to be the stretch 4 in Orlando right? Makes zero sense to have Pau start. Copy Orlandos mold and make Pau a sixth man where he will actually get touches.

He didnt get much playing time in ORL so he didn't have a solidified role. But with Clark defenders actually have to respect his midrange/long range game & makes the rights cuts when they don't. With Gasol defenders actually wouldn't mind seeing him brick jumpers all night so they roam off of him to double Dwight or Kobe and when they do he does nothing but stand behind the 3 point line to get the ball to take a very low percentage jumpshot

Jamison has also played the 4 better than Pau.
