Dantonie not playing Pau in the entire 4th quarter

Just a few games into this and our coach is already making puzzling moves with the rotations, reminds me of the last coach named mike the lakers had


Dantonie is all alone on the lakers, he doesn't have his staff, its just him and his brother against the left over assistants against the players

Now he has turned on Pau. Making comments about how the reason he did no play Pau was, because he wanted to win the game. Insulting Pau.

Pau has 2 NBA rings
What's dantonie got? Nothing!
Is this a sign lakers are going to trade Pau?
Is dantonie about to hop on the coach hit seat?
Has a team ever fired 2 coaches in the same season?

Do you miss Bernie?

What's next?

Pau is garbage under Pringles' system, and he'll be traded

With Pau in the floor, Memphis would end up with a 2 digit lead, with Pau on the bench, Lakers would close the gap

Pau deserved to be benched. It's really simple: Under Bernie, we played with no pressure. Under D'Antoni, we are playing under pressure and trying to figure out his system. I'm not saying I'd rather have D'Antoni than Phil, but Phil would have benched Pau as well. Dude is playing the worst basketball of his career. Period.

A coach should talk to his players behind closed doors

Not taking shots at him in press conferences and player shooting back on twitter


We are right back into a bad coaching situation

The lakers insulted Phil, hired an injured dantonie, stuck dantonie with the old staff, and now it's possible the player or other coaches will turn on dantonie

Lakers are vering back into the panic lane

One time Stan van gundy called dwight out when he was younger about his lack of effort. The next game he put up 20 pts and 20 rbs. Calling players out works if you actually care about being good. If pau doesnt respond he obviously is just here for the paycheck and is coasting. He's acting like bynum just a lot more subtle.

Pau was struggling. Why would D'Antoni keep playing through the fourth?

Smart move by the coach.

Either Pau adjusts to D'Antoni's offense or bye-bye.

This guy didnt watch the game and is complaining about why Pau didnt play the 4th quarter...

HE didnt play the 4th quarter because he was GARBAGE. There is no room for GARBAGE on this roster.

It is not DAntonis fault..he cant stand up much right now and move because of his leg but I know he adresses the team in the timeouts and during halftime and on the plane

so just keep calm with the coach

The bigger issue is PAU GASOL!

Did you even watch the game? Pau Gasol played like a D-Leaguer tonight. I'm glad D'Antoni benched his ass. We can't have guys floating out on the floor refusing to rotate defensively and giving us nothing on the offensive end. He was completely useless. We played MUCH better on both ends of the floor once Pau was left sitting on the bench.

It's good that he insulted him, maybe he'll wake up and start playing with some effort. For a guy who's been traded and is perpetually on the trade block, he's really not playing like someone that wants to stay here in LA.

Pau winning titles in '09 and '10 doesn't mean a damn thing in 2012.

Even with effort, Pau wont thrive in D'Antoni's system... unless he regains his mid-range touch, which disappeared after Phil left.

I did not catch the game, i was at work, and got off in time to see the postgame.

I am siding with Pau Gasol on this one.

Guy was the best player on the floor for stretches of the USA-Spain game.

Guy still has serious talent.

Ah but when Mike Brown did that he was being soft and not making his team respect him :laughing:


And I have no problem with what D'antoni said, it's the truth, the world knows it, he definitely knows it.

If Pau didn't want to be benched he needs to bring a better effort, he played like the last string on a bench tonight so it's where he deserved to be placed. We benefited from it.

I stopped reading right there.

You SHOULD see this game. I can guarantee if you did there would not be an inch of your mind actually here trying to defend him.

Pau is done. More done than I've ever seen him.

Seriously, go watch it. In all honesty he shouldn't have even played the 2nd half. THAT is how bad he was.

If you didnt see that game then you have no idea what happened. I have never seen a starter play so bad ever. I mean his defense was so bad he basically let everyone just score. It was as if he betted on the other team.

Everytime he was in were started geting into a bigger and bigger hole then he would go out and no matter who was in we would be coming back. We got back within 3 with about 4 and half minutes left in the half. Pau come in and I swear to got we went back down to 12. We did get it to 7 by the end of the half but only cuz kobe hit a impossible 3 and artest did a quarteback full court pass to jaminson for a 15 foot hook shot that went in. We should have been down by 12 at the half.

The same thing happened in the 2nd. We started the half with pau and he got us into an 18 point hole. We tool hi out and was getting close but 18 points was just to much to come back from in just a quarter.

This game was a pure example of how bad pau is now. Even kobe was seeming very pissed at him.

Pau is hee for nothing but a pay check now. You can tell he doesn't even care anymore. He just like bynum was acting last season but being more subtle about it

Its sad to hear... but... i believe what your saying is the truth...
Pau has just lost heart, and belief in this team...

Once he is traded, i would love to hear him talk about his time with Kobe...

Kobe is just too intense...
Pau won 2 titles, he is cool with that, he has no desire to win another NBA ring, he would love to beat Team USA for gold and win for team Spain, but, he is not the same player on the Lakers as he is on the Spanish National team.

Pau gasol may be the greatest PF in Lakers history...
But he may be done as a laker
