    He isn't getting past the deadline as a Laker.

    I kinda feel bad for him. While I think D'antoni will work Pau was the odd man out here and we all knew it.

    Gasol just needs to get out of LA. He can still help a team out and has another at least 2 years of good basketball left in him. Honestly, the best place for him is Memphis coming off the bench provided relief for Randolph. Even though that's unlikely with Memphis unlikely to meet what LA want.

    Pau's still a very good player. We aren't utilizing him correctly. If he gets dealt he can help a team tremendously. The problem is he's a center, and we're starting two centers.

    He played well with Bynum at his side.

    I would like to see him out of the 1st quarter early so he can play with the second unit. When the second unit is missing shots, they can just give it to Pau to post up.

    Back to the point. Pau plays better when he gets called out. I think this is just Kobe lighting a fire. No problems with that, Kobe does this with a lot of guys, and he's pretty tight with Pau.

    Seems to be that the people "whining" are Kobe and Pringles.

    I don't think its appropriate for a leader to "call a player out" like this especially in the media.
    Especially to be so condescending and insulting just makes it so much worse.

    If they are "tight" he could have done this behind closed doors.

    I remember Shaq publicly criticizing Kobe's game back in the early 00's and even then I felt he was wrong for not doing it privately and he didn't use such insulting terms.

    Yeah, I can't really disagree with you. Phil used to call Pau out all the time in the public eye lol. Subtle remarks here and there, added in with some strong sarcasm. I think it'll be fine.

    Pau just needs to play. It's almost like he's thinking too much out there. Just play the game. He's being passive in the post now, which I don't understand, since he's been begging for the ball down there. He just needs to come out and play with emotion, like he used to do.

    I think he'll pick it up eventually.

    Hopefully but I worry about Pau getting mentally effected by all the negative media attention and what Kobe did just now is only making it worse.

    They need to take all this attention off Gasol and find ways to get him more active in the post and then pat his back when he does well.

    That is what they did in the late 00's and it worked wonders.
    Obviously Pau has declined some since then and is dealing with some health issues but he can still obviously play much better then he has been.

    Therein lies the problem, he isn't getting many touches in the post, but when he does he's doing virtually nothing with it and is then publicly moaning in post game interviews that he wants more touches.

    Kobe has obviously been asked about Pau's request and is responding - no idea why some people are questioning what Kobe is saying here.

    I don't get why everyone doesn't think Pau can work in Mikes offense. A PF that can run the P&R, make you respect his jumper, can pass, is skilled, and has post game to boot. He has played a little soft but Jesus Chrizt he isnt the problem. He has the goods, the Lakers have the goods, find some role players that can shoot, and wait for yor PG THAT MAKES THIS OFFENSE WORK in the first place.
