Pau will be better next year, and he will be better some place else.

 

He's done as Laker.   He needs to go.  He has needed to go.  Management has known this for a while, but they have never been able to replicate what they pulled of in December 2011.  Probably not even close to that (see what they got for Odom).

 

We actually did well to retain him in the D12 trade.  But this off-season, we've got to find a taker. 

 

Let him get back in shape this off-season and have a litte resurgence.  Good for him.  Just do it some place else.

I think we need to either get a starting caliber SF and bench player out of pau. Or a couple of good bench players and mid 1st round pick or higher in order to get a developmental player with potential

Lol no, I'll probably get to know Jared(Dudley) better than I know Kobe, because his father is friends with the family.

And my cousin was best friend with Jerry Stackhouse and I'd always see him when I'd travel down to farmville in north carolina.

So yeah, lots of basketball in my family ;)

Even used to beat Anthony Morrow back in high school 1 on 1 down at the Y.

Funny thing is he always had an excuse if he lost, if he won(never did against me), he was "trying" when he lost, he wasn't trying cause he was gonna make the NBA.

Funny thing is, he DID go on to make the NBA but I still think he was full of it lol ;)

But when I'd go to the other Y in the city Antawn Jamisons cousin was always there and we'd run against the other in the rec.

Funnier thing is when my dad was rehabbing his knee, Antawn Jamison was there doing the same thing at the EpiCenter.

Walked up to him and he looked up at me like he was ready to start a conversation but I was too shy to say anything so I walked past lol. I'm gonna correct that one day.

So you are saying you beat an Nba caliber player.......right :rolleyes:

Yes back in high school when we used to play down at the Y in NC when he'd be over there I used to beat him.

Roll your eyes all you want I was there ;)

But like I said, he's in the NBA right now and I'm not so he gets the last laugh ;)

Understand it takes more than 1 on 1 skills to make the NBA.

and I can agree with you on this. Kobe needs to let go of Pau. Pau no longer uses his skills

It also screws up the spacing and takes away some of Dwights freedom which also makes him easier to double team and defend because of where Gasol stands and how he doesn't move.

We play better and free with him on the bench, Pau slows down our pace too much that it throws everyone else off.

Man you guys gotta be blind. Mike D'Antoni putting Pau Gasol in the starting lineup is obviously not the problem. We only went on a huge run to get back into the game last night because Kobe started sharing the ball. It didn't have anything to do with Pau being on the bench considering we played significantly better without him for the twenty games he missed and were getting close to being a lock for the playoffs. Right? It's so obvious. [expletive]

This game is a young mans sport.....this team is old. You cannot blame all this on Gasol, our team is just old and struggling.

The game changes, the players turnover, but the Mamba remains a constant!

Kawai Leonard, Tiago Splitter, Tony Parker, and Danny Green aren't old. 

Earl Clark, Jordan Hill, Darius Morris and Devin Ebanks aren't old either, but the core of our team is just as the Spurs core is which makes them an old team.

I couldnt stand & still cant stand Morris but is his defense not worth putting him out there when Nash & Blake are getting murdered & LA is losing control of gms?

 

Like I always tell you guys you dont know what these guys can do FOR SURE until they play REAL games. Not practice & not exhibitions. Certainly not bullsheet mins at ends of blowouts.

because the coach is a dumbass.  the coach messes up a winning rotation *an actually rotation that works* and putting in a guy he already benched who is coming off an injury so hes not 100% up to speed.

There's people that play ball that have no idea how spacing works as well. Play pro ball doesnt = knowledgable. Just as not pro ball player doesnt = idiot.
