Pau Gasol is out as Lakers' starter, Mike D'Antoni said. Permanently.

But on a serious note, we are about to see Pau become a serious cancer to the team now. Hopefully he demands a trade.

Awesome news! I just hope that this means Pau will no longer be finishing games as well.

A good move by MDA in my opinion, but it'll be very interesting to see how Pau reacts.

Wow, I actually applaud 'Antoni for doing this even if it means losing Pau for good. Clark is a no name, and for all the talent Pau has over him he's still given us more impact, words well next to Dwight. This is either the beginning of a quick end for Pau, or a chance for him to flourish off the bench.

D'Antoni already talked to Pau Gasol about the switch to the bench. About that, D'Antoni said: "That's ...
life. He understands." D'Antoni also said: "It also puts Pau in his natural position. He's one of the best centers in the league." Gasol will get some post touches off the bench, and the Lakers hope Clark changes them with athleticism. D'Antoni said it gives them "a little more bounce to our step."

^ Hopefully Pau really does understand, but I'll still be waiting to hear him speak after the game.

D'Antoni's indication was no. RT @CTKwasniewski: @KevinDing Odom finished. Will MDA allow Gasol and Dwight to share floor last 6 minutes?

Personally I think this is a good move from MDA. Pau & Dwight have shown that they don't have a winning formula, playing two centers in a court is just a failed experiment in today NBA.

If Lamar Odom can come off from bench and win us the 6th man of the year award, so can Pau Gasol !

I don't care if he's starting or not, whatever it takes to win. If we still play crappy basketball, will any of us care that MDA made the "gutsy" decision to bench Gasol?

Suddenly our bench unit look not so bad with the addition of big men Pau Gasol :man1:

C - Pau
PF - Jamison (Hill)
SF - Ebanks
SG - Meeks (Morris)
PG - Duhon (Blake)

It only looks better if Pau accepts his role and starts playing somewhat close to what he's capable of.

Pau will not understand. But I applaud the move anyway. MDA has balls. Now, he also needs to tell Kobe how to play and not deviate "from the script", whatever the script might be. Once that happens, we might start playing better. But I think it's too late to salvage the season.

So Craig Sager just said Pau is not happy being a bench player, told him he's never been a role player, and he's not one now. Sager asked him if he thinks his time as a Laker will be over by the trade deadline and Pau said "it looks like a possibility", wow, dreams coming true.

Pau, nearly throws it away, bricks an easy chip shot and is bailed out by a foul call. Bricks the first free throw, makes the 2nd. Let's monitor Pau tonight.

That last play where Pau got blocked by Noah on the 3 point attempt and fouls him by flailing his arms while trying to grab the ball pretty much sums up his value to the team right now.
