Default Pau to permanently come off bench

Mike D'Antoni has removed Pau Gasol from the Los Angeles Lakers' starting lineup permanently.

Gasol has started 816 of his 823 career NBA games.

19 million for a bench player? That's gotta be a new NBA record.

This just shows how bad of a coach D'Antoni is. The Lakers need to swallow their pride and give Phil Jackson a blank check.

I wish Casey has the stones to say this about Bargnani when he returns.

Like jeff says, why even say it out loud? And really. If Dwight and Clark get injured, I'd bet the house he is starting.

What a disaster of a team.

I never really liked D'Antoni's style. The run and gun in Phoenix was fun to watch at times, but that's about it.

D'antoni not a fit for this team... or for any team really.

as bill simmons tweeted:

remember in the olympics where team USA couldn't stop earl clark in the post? oh wait that was pau gasol.

if i was miami I would be offering Bosh for gasol right now. gasol is a pure center with a smooth high post game that can also spread the floor perfectly for lebron to operate. plus he's unselfish so watch his assists explode as teams start to double him down low with weapons like wade and lebron cutting and running towards the basket while surrounded by ray allen, lewis and chalmers.

with the lakers, what can go wrong with a bosh/howard tandem? those two will turn any frontcourt in the west inside out as well as easily matchup with the clippers and grizzlies just because Bosh is a tricky lefty post player that catches one-on-one defenders in the air with his pump fakes and under used post game. plus he gives howard some more minutes to rest on the bench and switch to the 5 so that howard wont have to work so hard and risk injury as the lakers gel for the playoffs.





or bring him here so we can see 48 minutes of Calderon and gasol pick and roll nonsense and watch the wins rack up. i expect nothing less that 50+ championships.

After his stellar game against us I am warming up for Gasol for Bargnani and Kleiza trade
Think about it - can play center better than any of our PFs, moves the ball, efficient scorer
Plus he will be great with Calderon
Veteran two year rental that makes perfect sense for both teams
Lakers shed expensive lux tax salary, DAntoni and Bargnani will love each other
