It's not about lack of chemistry when they get out on a 3-on-2 fast break and Pau pulls up for a 3 because clearly that's what this coach encourages..or when he camps out in the corner waiting for a shot.
The thing that worries me the most though, is what if we trade Pau for lesser talent just to please our dumb-*** coach, and we still lose Dwight at the end of this season? And that option is very real.
We trade gasol for depth, cause his stock is in alltime low
We miss playoffs or get swept at first round
Howard signs for Hawks or Mavs or even Rockets.
kobe either asks for a trade or plays his last season out, tries to average 40 a game and walks after the season.
No good players to attract top talent F.A in 2014.
Completely ****ed up we overpay for Rudy gay type of dudes.
We suck for a decade.
the knicks of the new decade.
Croon, you aren't going to win this battle. Pau on this team doesn't pass the eye test, not just this year, not just last year but the last THREE years. He stunk it up in the playoffs 2 years ago, before mike brown, before d'antoni, Pau does NOT work as a PF, he is at his best as a C, it's more than obvious.
IF this was just this year, i'd be with you but the fact is, this has been going on for years, at least 5, the same complaints that we as laker fans had for pau gasol are the same complaints we have now. its not his feet, its not his hip, it's his attitude and his personality.
And if we don't trade Pau i think these 2 rotations at the 4/5 would benefit
Clark PF Pau C- Clark's athleticism can make up for Pau's also it lets Pau play in the post
Jamison PF Dwight C- Jamison's inability to play defense will be made with Dwight's post defensive play also lets Jamison be a spot up and slash player off the double teams Dwight creates.
It gets worse fellas, it gets worse
He doesnt just see himself as a starter, he wants himself to be a star still. He thinks he still deserves to be a star. If Kobe utters that bull ****, hell Metta who has outperformed him this year they would be burned aliveDave McMenamin @mcten
Pau: "Iíve been a starter my entire career. Iíve been a star starter my entire career, so I want to continue to be a star starter."
Give Phil a mil not to coach, but just to come in one day, punch that ***** and say get right
