http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/225095/Gasol_Finds_DAntoni_System _Tougher_Than_Playing_With_Howard Pau Gasol returned to the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup after missing eight games due to knee tendinitis. Gasol had 10 points, nine rebounds, five assists and four blocks in the Lakers' win over the Bobcats. "I don't find (playing with Howard) tough," Gasol said. "It's more the system right now that makes it tough at times, because (D'Antoni) wants four guys to be spread and one interior guy and it's a guard-oriented system, so that makes it tough. "I think there's enough looks for both of us. But again, it's not a system that you post up a lot, so we'll see.....

He can take all the 3's he wants, He'll be averaging like 14% from there. Just trade the F*cker already it's getting disrespectful.

D'antoni is an idiot. Can't blame Gasol since he's not just gonna expand his game just like that. D'antoni needs to use his players properly, just like what Greg does. Speaking of coach, Vinny is definitely better that this idiot.

At least we won't have to hear the obligatory "r***-screams" whenever he steps a foot in the paint.

Side note: Laker fans' new nickname for their coach is D'An-phoney... pretty imaginative for them.

I bet you the Lakers offered Pau for Ryan Anderson and the Hornets/Pellicans hung up.

Pau doesn't fit in D'Antoni's system at all since there can only be one post player in that system and they decided to make Dwight the "post player" even though Pau is much better in the post.

Also Pau is more of a Center than PF. So Dwight Howard and Pau do not work so well together. There is a reason why Pau played worse once Bynum started.

Ok, let me dream here ...

Lakers trade Pau, a decent but declining skill player, for some shooters.

Lakers get bounced early on the PO's.

Dwight signs elsewhere.

Come October 2013 Kobe's starting center is now Robert Sacre, and starting PF is Jordan Hill.

Kobe has to do it all (at least in his mind) get hurt.

Mid season 2013, the Lakers are paying 30m/ season to an injured, grumpy prima donna who cant play.

Starting line up is Blake, Jamison, MWP, Hill, Sacre. Lights out.
