Three Lakers in all said they did not get up on time because the alarm clocks on their iPhones malfunctioned that morning, sources said, but Gasol was the only one who didn't show up at all. Luke Walton was one of the other two Lakers who arrived late. The third Laker was not identified but sources said it was not Kobe Bryant. A source would only confirm that Gasol missed the shootaround.

sounds like one big coincidence if you ask me. Maybe Pau and Luke were having a bunning it up before practice and devised the same excuse. It's reminding me of high school.

Either they didnt want to go and since Phil is old and doesnt know what an iPhone is pretended it messed up.
or
Someone got a hold of all their phones and tangled with them

The i-phone alarm clock DID malfunction on NY day (on all i-phones I believe, this wasn't a Laker issue...), and I know two people personally who were late to appointments because of it (3 if you include a radio host I listen to).

Good thing I switched to the Captivate. DROIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIID.

DROOOOIIIID, hooray. I have a Captivate too. I use the alarm clock on it all the time, it's never malfunctioned.

Although I tend to wake up before the alarm goes off. my internal alarm is actually pretty good

Weak and pathetic excuse.

I have an alarm clock in my room with a battery that covers me in case of power failure and it being plugged in doesn't matter.

You can get alarm clock/alarm clocks, wake up calls, and things like that to cover you.

You make millions of dollars, be a professional and don't make pathetic excuses. Its not hard to get up and get to work to on time if you have enough pride to.

My morning wood usually wakes me up by 7:30 every morning, and if that doesn't, my morning poo does.

My iPhone didn't go off either and I was late to work. From now I'm using those alarm clocks with the buzzer. They never glitch.

There really was an iPhone malfunction. With the switch of the new year, the alarm clocks on iPhones weren't going off at their set times. It's definitely not a pathetic excuse if it was a morning practice they missed. The alarm didn't go off so they overslept. It may be an excuse, but I never ready in a dictionary that the definition of an excuse was false or untrue reasoning. And with all the traveling, games, practices, flights leaving and arriving at 2 a.m. non stop for months, I'd say it would actually be difficult waking up in the morning on time. There really is no body clock for NBA players. They sleep whenever they can during any time of the day. I hate the lakers with a burning passion and I'm defending them. That's because your ignorance and incompetence is pathetic. Your failure to understand other contributing factors is pathetic.
