Pau Gasol is a Center and he has been played out of his position that why he is struggling, during our championship run Pau was our 5 while Odom was our 4 in the majority of the times, Pau needs to be played as a Center period, we are misused him and turning him into Dirk, he should works and force his man to play in the post to maximizes his potential, he is too slow and immobile to play outside the paint as a 4, He is consistently taking shots further and further away from the paint, that was not his game, that why he's in 30% FG shooting mid-range jumpshot this season currently with us.
Under D'Antoni he will be even worse I think since Dwight will be our low post player, we should seriously consider to mixes up the lineup and bring him off the bench to backup Dwight at the Center position, Jamison could played stretch 4 alongside Dwight in the starting lineup to provide spacing, I rather see Jamison & Hill playing in the 4 position instead of Pau, let Pau plays in his natural position and to do the damage attacking in the post. I think this could benefit both Pau as well as the Lakers.
