So let me get this straight...

Pau Gosal is a bench player?

Please name me the other teams where he would not be good enough to start.

I'm surprised Pau's actually been playing well since the move, but he's a sensitive guy. I'm afraid he'll sulk and stop playing as hard as he has lately.

Actually I see Pau having a meaner streak though. Its a shame he and Dwight can't play together effectively for long spurts. Many times Clark at PF looked better with Dwight.

This serious?

The guy wants to play. You'd prefer if he didn't want to be out there more?

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.

What relevance is other teams lineups if he's not on them? He's on the Lakers. He's a worst center than Howard and hasn't shown himself to be any better than Earl Clark at PF.

If he wants to start and play more minutes then stop being one of the least efficient bigs in the league and play some defense for a change.

He does not want to play as a bench player, its nothing selfish.

Who is he thinking about when he broadcasts to the world his problems with coming off of the bench?

Knee-jerk analysis at its best.

@mcten: D'Antoni said he hasn't talked to Pau about the benching today and noted that Metta was benched too and didn't complain

@mcten: D'Antoni on Pau expressing his frustration about being benched: "I guess the 'all for one' lasted about 48 hours. Not bad"

LMAO. Pau is so gone

D'Antoni will ruin your franchise. If it was any franchise but the Lakers I'd feel kinda bad.
