not sure what you want when you give a 7 footer the ball at the 3 point line with 2 seconds on the clock and someone in his face.

if anything, his foul prevented an easy dunk.

The fact that Gasol would tell Sager it's "certainly looking like a possibility" that he'll be traded tells you where his mind is at.

I agree. This might be the first thing I've been pleased about regarding MDA. Good call by him. Tough luck Pau, but you brought it on yourself. Clark was the best thing we've had going in some time. Got to stick with him. Pau should come off the bench, bottom line. It's better for him and the team.

For big money deals yes, but for smaller contracts I'm guessing no.

Cry me a river, Pau. You're earning 19 mil/year, don't cry about being 'demoted' to the bench, at least you still get to play. I'm sure any one on CL would love to take your spot at a fraction of the price. :man1: :man10:

Pau wasn't great tonight, but he didn't suck either.

If we can get a double-double out of him, I'll take it.

Pau will be gone for sure.... Lakers aren't paying that much to play this bad.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

His defense is just non-existent.

We can't afford to have multiple starters who don't play defense.

Pau: "I’d love to play here for as many years as possible because I identify myself with the team and I want it to work"


https://twitter.com/mcten

Pau surprised and not "thrilled" about not starting. But ... "We have bigger things to worry about as a group."


https://twitter.com/LakersReporter

Some post-game comments from Pau; not thrilled about starting and thinks he might be traded. I pray Mitch has an exit strategy...

It's weird to think he might be traded soon. Seems inevitable, supposing some team wants him that is. He hasn't helped his stock lately, but I think scouts and coaches know he's still one of the more talented bigs in the league, and could still be an asset on most teams. Since he arrived until 2010-2011 season was a very special time in Lakers history that will be remembered fondly for many many years to come. It's hard to say he's one of the Laker all-time greats when there are so many, but he's always been a favorite of mine. I don't know what happened to him, but he just seems mentally and emotionally 'done' with basketball in a way, at least done with where he is in the league right now.

Cmon guys, cut it with these GTFO comments to a player who we wouldn't have title in 09 & in 10 with. Show some respect at least for the guy. He needs to be moved I agree & his defense is terrible, but don't kick the guy while he's down.

The team looked good with Pau out, yeah.

Thank God he´s no longer a starter, otherwise we would have gone for 70 points or something like that, something to be proud of.

The team have bigger problems than Pau, which by the way it´s a problem createad by this close minded coach, not getting Howard involved, Nash not running plays, Kobe ball hogging in pure Kwame-Atkins time, terrible team defense, confusing rotations and changing lineups...

This team is a mess, it looks like every man for himself right now.

I'll bet my balls, he'll play like Spain NT Pau when he's with another team. I have no doubt about it. He'll have something to prove then.

Here he's been coasting for 3 years, cashing in checks and calling it the day. He's done.

Too bad Thibs isn't available. Second choice would be B Scott. Then Shaw. Any of these guys would be awesome.

As for Pau, I doubt he gets traded, since the seasons already a wash. We're better off starting him and hope that his stock rises by the end of the season.
