I tend to agree with him here, thoughts?

L.A. Times: Following Wednesday’s loss in Dallas, Pau Gasol was asked if the Lakers too frequently coast in games. “Sometimes we just get a little too comfortable, too confident in games and we don’t push hard enough at times to be able to pull away from teams,” he said. “You give a home team confidence, they get going, the crowd gets into it. We’ve got to control games. We have enough guys here and enough quality that we can do that.”

    players like pau, odom, etc cant get comfortable..that’s what will kill us

  • kisofdeath

    i agree, but this is bull

    we’ve heard this same thing over and over and over this season, from media, from fans, even from players

    what gets me is if the players are able to mention it in the interview, and recognize it, then do something

    its not one of those things were you have to practice and study to understand and execute…its not “we have to shoot better” or “we have to get our rotations right on defese”. all it is is “we get too comfortable” easy fix, play on edge

    and there was no reason to get comfortable yesterday against dallas

    In a nutshell this is what keeps this Laker team from becoming dominant. Early in the season we were beating teams by 10-20 points. Since then we’ve been in so many close games I can’t even count. Like Pau just said once you let a team think that they can play with you then they will, they get confident and you have a tough game. It seems like a majority of the time the opposing teams play with more hustle, intensity and aggression than we do. We can usually squeak by on skill and the fact that we have talent but can you imagine if we played with passion every night?

    I’m a Laker lover but it’s so frustrating to watch us play so lackadaisical. My hope is that at some point we flick the switch and bring the passion. I only hope that it isn’t too late!

    thats the reason JORDANS BULLS won so many games and championships,games were over bye the 2nd quarter.The starters were usually resting midway thru the 4th quarter.KOBES LAKERS struggle every game,and like their leader seem lost until the last 2 minutes of games…………………golakers
