If that sorry excuse of a coach is going to be here this season i agree pau should step up and ask to play with the bench players and finish the games with the other guys. I don't care if he starts the games or if he's brought from the bench like Manu, but this team is so awful right now that something big have to be made.

Yeah so floor spacing gets even worse and Hill manages to break the glass on every wide open J the opponent D will give him ...

If Pau is benched , Jamison should start as a stretch 4 for D12 and play his natural position ...

Great idea James

I thought of this idea too. Hill is faster on the defensive rotations which is really being compromised with Gasol. I really don't get the reason why he is. Tired legs? Miscommunication? Confusion? Hell, I'd even consider Ebanks starting at the 3 for the same reason. If Nash were playing, he'd find them for scores even if they are both offensively undeveloped at this early point in their playing careers.

Wanted him gone since. BUT, gave him another chance to run P n R with Nash........Thanks to Potato Head, we haven't seen any of it.

So in the end, I want Potato Head gone first. Then see how Pau does doing PnR with Nash.

Now you guys know why I wanted to trade him this off-season.

Pau has greatly regressed and also seems to suck at adjusting to Brown's (admittedly) awful offense.

I brought up this idea as well. I know it's kind of absurd to have a bench player making 19 million a year or whatever Pau is making this year, but I don't think he can play the 4 anymore, he's lost a lot of his lateral quickness and speed (and he didn't have much to begin with).

^ It certainly looks that way, which is kind of terrifying to be honest. 19 million shouldn't be acting or playing that way defensively.

I think offensively he's looked better this season. More aggressive and attacking more. But defensively he's been flat out awful. He gets beat off of the dribble REPEATEDLY. He always gives the opposition the baseline hoping to trap him I guess, but he doesn't have the speed to do it. He needs to defend straight up.

The Utah frontcourt, Millsap in particularly always seem to give Pau trouble. I just don't see the Lakers holding onto him playing like this for very long. We may just cut our losses and take what we can get for him...

im tired of Gasol....its like watching a woman with a beard running around out there


soft
lazy
unmotivated


if we can get rid of him for a young athletic big with at least half a testicle, it would be an improvement


im with Big Game in that we should start Hill over Pau

move Pau to the bench and let him try to be the main guy there...it might help our bench...if not, he sucks anyways and belongs with those scrubs

it'll help our anemic bench...he can be the focal point since noone wants to claim that unit


Pau Gasol- the leader of the scrubs...has a nice ring to it


meanwhile, the starting front court of Dwight and Hill would be all energy

Gasol is worthless on defense.

Every game, it's the same thing: I hear the commentators pointing out how Gasol just stands around and spectates while opponents dunk on him and get easy layups.

Seems pretty obvious that playing for the Lakers isn't his top priority.

^^It's not about "box score" defense.... Even you have to concede that he is completely lost when the other team attacks the hoop.... the guard getting through the pick and roll and passing to Howard's man for a layup won't show up in that analysis. Nor will the rotational cover of a SF flying by him for an offensive rebound.

Defense is a team effort.... you can't quantify it like that....
