http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/8704495/kobe-bryant-los-angeles-lakers-calls-pau-gasol-loss

By Dave McMenamin

LOS ANGELES -- For the second time in five games, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol watched the final minutes of the fourth quarter from the sidelines. Kobe Bryant says Gasol has to take it into his own hands to change that.

"Put your big-boy pants on," Bryant said after the Lakers' 113-103 loss to the Orlando Magic on Sunday that dropped the team's record to 8-9. "Just adjust. Just adjust. You can't whine about it. You can't complain about it."

Gasol was subbed out with 6:07 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Lakers up 84-83. Orlando outscored L.A. 30-19 the rest of the way. Gasol ended his night with 11 points of 4-for-11 shooting, seven rebounds, two assists and a block in 29 minutes.

"I don't get irritated," Gasol said of the benching. "I like to be out there. It's upsetting for me as a player but I won't allow it to irritate me."

It was the second time the benching occurred with Gasol's family in the building. The first time came against Marc Gasol and the Memphis Grizzlies and Gasol's father and younger brother, Adria, were at Staples Center for the game Sunday.

Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni downplayed the difficulty of getting Gasol back on track.

"Just talk to him," D'Antoni said. "There's no magic words out there. He's going to have to play. He still had 11 and seven and he's playing, but we just have to be a more dynamic team. We're slow right now. It's just athletically, we're struggling."

D'Antoni added that he didn't want to "lose Pau," but Bryant assured that would not be a problem.

"We're not going to lose him," Bryant said. "That's just not going to happen. I've been around him long enough. I know how to deal with him."

Gasol told reporters last week that painful and persistent tendinitis in both of his knees has been limiting his athleticism. Bryant, who publicly supported Gasol last season when he was the subject of constant trade rumors, had no interest in any excuses being made by the former four-time All-Star.

"Pau has got to make some adjustments, obviously, to his game," Bryant said. "He might not be posting up as much as he likes, but he just has to adjust.

"The reality is, I've adjusted, I've never run this many screen-rolls in my entire career. But I've worked on it. I've worked on handling the ball. I've worked on coming off of screens and making plays. I'm used to being in the post much, much more but you have to adjust.

"You have to master what it is that we're trying to do here and Pau is talented enough and he's good enough to be able to do that."

More on the Lakers

For more news, notes and analysis of the Lakers, check out the Lakers Report blog from the Kamenetzky Brothers. Blog

When asked if he was surprised by being left out of the action in the fourth, Gasol said: "I think we're all trying to figure it out and we're all trying to do our best to win the game. The coach makes his decisions and you got to respect that."

D'Antoni will continue to make decisions, but Bryant issued marching orders of his own.

"There's no excuses to be made, there's no whining," he said. "No putting your head down. We're here, we have the talent to make adjustments, we have to make them. Period. ...

"I'll kick everybody's ass in this locker room if that doesn't happen. That's the attitude that you have to have. Metta (World Peace) is the same way. Dwight (Howard) has that in him as well. Even though he smiles a lot, he still cares a lot about this thing. Like I said, come hell or high water, it has to get done."

and the Lakers up 84-83. Orlando outscored L.A. 30-19 the rest of the way

let's talk about that

let's talk about Jordan Hill getting DNP'd, after contributing before Pringles took over

let's talk about Kobe regressing back to bad Kobe after playing great team ball the first month of the season

nah

we'll just talk about Pau being soft

WTF?

The Lakers are 1-6 when Kobe takes 20 or more FGAs

talk about it!

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

What's really going on is they're a poorly put together team. They keep asking Kobe to lead the offense, and when nobody responds, he shoots. If D' Antoni is your coach you have to make major overhauls because the personnel doesn't really match his desired style. The idea that Nash will make them better and more consistent is a stretch. If they ever get hot and find some consistency they can make a run, but as it stands nobody should believe they will.

Gasol's situation is like Ray's in Boston. He'll say the right things about his diminishing role, but it'lll never work.

12-3 when Kobe takes less than 20 FGAs

fuck all that ' bullshit

shit, it ain't even about Mike Brown

Pau Gasol diversions

or D12 riffs

it's about Kobe going lone gunner

desperate to win the scoring title at 34 in his 17th season

or whatever the narrative is

fuck that hero ball bullshit

Kobe going on the offensive, trying to obviate whining that hasn't happened yet.

Gasol, irritated is a step before upset, not the other way around. ΏLe dio rabia o que, perrito?

The funniest thing is that after Gasol was benched the Magic stuck it in deep, it was tight game at that point.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

...they didn't.

And truthfully? It really doesn't matter anyway. Pau is garbage this year. D'Antoni isn't utilizing him how he should and Pau's being a big ole vagina. That's the point here.

But cool, y'all can keep on keepin on acting like Pau is a 28 year old who's dominating everyone. I feel so bad for the $19 mil making guy.

where does this come from

for a guy that was traded

and continues to be dragged under the bus when the Lakers aren't playing well

I think he's handled himself extremely well

Look, if you want to compare him to the OTHER guy the Lakers traded, then...fucking yes, he looks like a goddamn saint. Doesn't change the fact he's a 7 foot vagina and has been since the 2011 playoffs.

and hack a Dwight working?

no criticism of ' DNPin Jordan Hill

running Tawn

running Duhon

they were winning when Pau got benched

why point the criticism at him

after this game

because you're still upset about a playoff L 6 months ago?

the Lakers had 3 guys watching Kobe and D12 on the floor to close out the game

RonRon, Tawn and Duhon run to the 3Pt line and stop

but Pau is a vagina?

and when he gets traded

you'll have another plea cop ready to fire

instead of addressing the real issues

again

damn, didn't this scene already play out last year

Pau's low post game doesn't fit Pringles system

so he goes with Tawn

and they get ran in that final 6 minutes

.

talk about that

but if we can only talk about Pau being a whiney, complaining, moist vagina

can we at least get a quote or something

what did he say?

Kobe said, 'you can't complain'

what was Pau's complaint?

because I didn't hear him say shit.

or we can talk about Kobe sayin, 'adjust, just adjust'

OK Kobe, adjust, stop jacking up 20+ FGAs

because it's not working

also a scene that played out last year.

were they a four seed the season before he got there?

does being a midseason middle seed make you a "top tier" team?

was anyone sweeping the streets for a parade after those shaqless years?

say what you want about gasol right today, but let's not go back in time and rob him of credit. ninny ass lakers fans have also told me detroit should have been favored to win the 04 finals, lol. i guess they should have been because the lakers were unathletic, slow and shallow, almost as much as they are right now.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

is he THAT much of a bitch?
being a professional and all that shit i get, but once ppl start throwing me under the bus professionalism has been tossed to the way side so fuck it
at this point i don't see what Gasol has to lose by speaking his mind
already has rings, probably made $100 mil in his career, probably has 1 more near max contract on the horizon regardless, will be the first star laker traded if it comes to that
why not tell dude to stfu or check him in the locker room

I agree.....

If I'm Pau I would ask for a trade tomorrow...This is not some rookie who has to grin and take it from Kobe...Pau also played a huge role in those 'chips in Laker Land...Everybody on that team has been struggling so to single out Pau is suspect...

If Kobe is going to constantly disrespect dude like that he needs to be on a mission to get the fuck out of dodge...It ain't worth it...

In response to Reply # 56


  

          

right to talk about it, and him, in the media.

Y'all really need to quit with this "he's being disrespectful, I wouldn't take that shit!!!!" angle, because if you were in the same position (remember, you're not the captain, you are a subordinate, yes, you are), you'd sit there and take it, just like Pau has to.

Yes, you would. And Pau's gonna sit there and take it, just like he did when Phil did the same exact "media call out" shit in the playoffs two years ago. And Pau can choose to either continue sulking, or take the bait and shut Kobe's mouth with his play on the court. His choice.

The problem with all that is this is a flawed team...Pau should not be made out to be the whipping boy...Kobe needs to handle his own flaws on defense...You would think after helping win those rings that Pau would have earned some of Kobe's respect...

If you are going to call out a veteran teammate do it in private...Don't use the press...

It's overkill at this point when your team is struggling just to keep up against Orlando...

And Pau's hardly the "whipping boy" here

Kobe also called D-12 out for missing free throws

And himself for turning the ball over (in previous games)

You really need to stop projecting and trying to make this an issue of disrespect and hypocrisy with Kobe, because it's actually neither of those things

When Mike D'Antoni says he benched Pau last week because he was trying to win the game, it was all good. But when Kobe speaks up, it's blatant disrespect and Pau should ask to be traded. FOH.

News to me, I do about 300 interviews a year with guys wearing a shiny "C" on their jersey and I have yet to have one do that.

Some coaches like to use the press to their guys, usually not long before they are fired. It's called desperation.

Hey...I can speak on my own on this...Chill with this "Ya'll" laziness...

It's my view that Kobe overstepped his bounds on a grown ass man that has put in the work...

Don't understand how that's an unreasonable view point....These cats are in their 30's...This ain't the vet trying to get the rookie or young player going...Pau has already been to war with Kobe...

Like I said before...Pau just needs to be out of that situation....

He can break the system anytime he wants to. I've been a Kobe fan for a long time but he risks going out like Iverson if he wants to act like he's without blame. Even before Mike Brown got fired, I thought this season was about whether Kobe was willing to change his approach.

I give Pau a lot of credit, I would be ready to roll out after multiple years of this shit by Kobe.

87. "over/under on Jordan Hill's minutes"
In response to Reply # 81


  

          

also an issue that needs to be talked about

Jordan Hill should not be getting DNPs

when your starting frontcourt is a backeotomy and tendonitis

95. "Nash made lakers pinky swear that they'd keep gasol"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://sulia.com/channel/phoenix-suns/f/b018f200-846a-4f10-b9be-d312aafe3c14/?source=twitter

Source: Ignore any and all trade talk about Pau Gasol because the Lakers landed Steve Nash by promising
him he would get to play with Gasol. Nash made it a prerequisite for passing on offers from Toronto and the Knicks that Pau would be around, the source said. Such prerequisites from an incoming star aren't that unusual -- Chris Paul made similar personnel demands as part of his agreement to be dealt to the Clippers. (In Paul's case, he wanted assurance that LAC would do whatever was necessary to retain restricted FA DeAndre Jordan.) Conceivably, once Nash gets back and actually plays with Gasol, the Lakers could continue to struggle and Nash re-thinks his position. But as of right now, one of the enticements that brought Nash to LA was the big Spaniard and the organization would have much bigger problems than they already have if they backtracked on their promise to keep Gasol in the fold.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

In response to Reply # 95


          

because Pau's the ONLY player on the roster they can anything of worth for.

Seriously, the Lakers are about to be horrible this year, lol.

106. "what do people think they could get for pau?"
In response to Reply # 97


  

          

a guy who looks shaky physically and has one more year left (right?) on his contract?

not only do i think the return would be limited, the trade partners would be limited to other good teams. what are they going to do? help san antonio or some other team like that?

the nash promise notwithstanding, they wouldnt have had many good options to move gasol.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

108. "For a team looking for cap space in 2014, his value is high. "
In response to Reply # 106


  

          

This year it's going to be a bitch to move him for any reasonable value. Next year is a different story, but unless it's done this summer and/or for someone with will be an excellent compliment to D12 on some Big Two shit, why even bother? Just wait for that 60 million or so to come off the books and make our best sales pitch for Brawn.

The latest bullshit floating in the toilet water of online trade ideas passed of as legit rumors is a three way swap of Gay/Pierce/Pau, which wouldn't be a bad deal for either party.

That said, the number of likely scenarios that would do us any good long term aren't many, and IMO nothing makes sense unless we know for sure we're keeping Dwight... So why bother with anything until we've got that figured out?

What's even more fucked up is Dwight loves to play coy so damn much that even if, for example, he really does hate playing for Pringles, the chances of him actually manning up and saying so this off season aren't high. I doubt they keep him next year regardless, so why fuck around and do anything when the two most important pieces have a reasonable chance of not even being here at the start of next season?
