Pau Gasol is out as Lakers' starter, Mike D'Antoni said. Permanently.
D'Antoni already talked to Pau Gasol about the switch to the bench.
About that, D'Antoni said: "That's ...life. He understands." D'Antoni also said: "It also puts Pau in his natural position. He's one of the best centers in the league." Gasol will get some post touches off the bench, and the Lakers hope Clark changes them with athleticism. D'Antoni said it gives them "a little more bounce to our step."
