Re: Pau Gasol is revealing himself as a very selfish player
Wow. Pau wanted to be and should have been in the game. You make opponents adjust to you, not the other way around.
D'antoni is a very weak minded coach. He has an incredibly talented team and he doesn't know how to use any of our strengths, he makes us adjust to opponents which is the wrong way to go about things.
Same thing with his system, which is why we're in such a big hole right now. He had the players adjust to his system, he didn't adjust his system to accomodate his players.
Both decisions he made are the sign of a bad coach. If Pau were a scrub, then sure, we adjust for Anderson. He's Pau Gasol, run the offense through Pau to punish them for leaving Anderson in the game. Make them adjust.
