We're not risking on firing MDA because we're also paying Potato Head also.

MDA won't go. So only option is to get rid of Gasol.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

The only way MDA goes is if the fans make him extremely in uncomfortable to the point where he resigns.

It took NYK fans a long ass time to do that.

For the millionth time - Pau and odom finished games during the two chips. Paus decline was exacerbated when odom was shipped and Bynum got the low post (and #2 status) and Pau got relegated to the high post.

Even Pau can't coexist with himself.

Pau's inability to play with another post player at center was foreshadowed years ago. Back in the 2010 season, Bynum had a stretch where he was playing very, very well. Pau's numbers went into decline during that time. It was only when Bynum went down with a knee injury again that Pau's numbers went back up, and then after Bynum came back, Phil basically had Bynum play as a role player working on defense and rebounding, while Pau got most of the touches down on the low block. Pau NEVER coexisted with Bynum, and that became more than apparent last year with Bynum's emergence.

Well LAkers didnt win no Titles with Bynum & Pau on court together dominating! They won with Pau on the court working dynamic duo with Kobe. La had their most success with Bynum on the bench in street clothes. When Bynum was playing at good level = Lakers were losing early in playoffs.

So it does not work & will not work with D12 cuz Pau is terrible on defense & not athletic.

I say keep the lineup we have now and bring Gasol off the bench or go ahead and trade him for bench players

People overstate how Pau and Bynum didn't play together in our championship runs. It's true that LO finished games, but we used to start games brutally effectively in the first quarters with Pau and Bynum playing volleyball on the offensive glass and interior passing leading to a lot o dunks.

The reason Pau and Gasol can't co-exist now is mainly because of D'Antoni's system and partially because of Pau's declining athleticism. If this was 2007-2010 Pau it would be different.

Our season was over when Jimboy passed on Phil. The triangle would have worked well with Pau and Dwight. We could have slowed the game down, pummeled opponents (Miami) in the post, and played methodically. Oh well...

The question should be "can Gasol and D'Antoni co-exist?" and the answer would be NO!

Gasol didn't average over .500 from the field, for his CARRER by shooting twenty-footers and threes!

Move Gasol to the post and Howard to the perimeter and then let me know how it goes...

The Lakers signing D'Antoni (when they could have gotten Phil or Sloan, both great fits!) will surely go down as one of the worst moves in franchise history!

It took Carmelo about 50 games to do that.
