I agree having Pau coming off the bench is as useless as when he had Meta coming of the bench, what's the point of moving the player to the bench if he is going to play the most mins, simply stupid!
The solution has been clear since bikerstaff coach the team, is not who starting is what system is being play.
The last 2 games the Lakers stop playing D'antoni's running game and the Lakers looked at lot better, sure they lost to Memphis, but it they look liked they almost had it figure out.
Against Utah they looks a lot better even more in sync, if they stay on this path I expect a turn around the rest of the way, Pau needs to get back in the starting line up.
Running game? What running game? If you thinks thats a running game.Guys at the seniors home run faster. Explain RR what exactly is Dantoni's running game.

Well you tell me. If some dude is smiling all the time on court would you take him seriously? Of course he should have a mad face once in a while

D'antoni's system is burning out the Lakers starter, he plays them a lot mins.
That's one thing Phil had once KB turn 30 he started managing KB's mins to make sure he was good to in the post season, he did the same for Pau, Meta.
At this pace if the Lakers make the post season all this guys will be running on empty and probably will get swept in the first round.
Some days Kobe looks like he needs an oxygen mask.

Look at the Lakers' games from when D'antoni took over once they get the ball they run, once they get to the 3 pts line they start jacking 3s, problem is most are misses and then they have to run back to on D.

Not only are the Lakers bigs not getting involve they are getting burn out by running pointlessly and he uses them for a lot minutes in the game.
Pau and company look tired in most games.

Well that's my point about D'antoni system, he makes the players run and doesn't care for how many mins he plays them.

Not just KB, but Pau and the other bigs they look tired and the bigs are not even getting involve in most games they are just there running up and down the court.

Ok this is just my opinion, I could be completely wrong here.

But I think D'antoni is so caught up in making his system work for the from office, that he didn't think pass having KB and Nash.

He doesn't realize this team is build for more a complex system not his crap of a system.
So once the starters don't respond and start getting blown out, he panics looks at his bench and in his mind cause of frustration believes he got no one he can trust that could go out there help turn it around, after all his best players are getting kill.
He end up playing his best players even more mins and they run out gas faster.

Now You do that on regular basis You got a very tired starting 5, they will play You a good game every 5 games the rest of the time they running on empty tanks.

I think that's why he moved meta to the bench and now Pau, so he can have in his second unit some one he can trust that could give the team a extra boost.
But if at the end of the game Meta and Pau coming of the bench end up playing 30 something plus mins then there is no point, both players are getting the same amount of mins as if they were the starters, they are getting equally tired and proves my the point that D'antoni couldn't rely on the two players he moved to the starting line up for them.

Hey B . Great game, ya boy Irving got us. Story of our season. Always close in dying minutes and never knowing how to finish. As weirsd as they may sound to most , had we won if not most of those close games we would be at least second place by now. Thats all we need is a finisher. I wish Bargs would hurry up ano come off the injury list so we can make a deal. Otherwise , i really enjoy watching the Cavs.

Toronto is perhaps the most realistic landing spot for Gasol, given the uncertainty in the organization about whether Andrea Bargnani will ever develop into a star there. Bargnani wouldn't have to be a star in LA. He would simply have to stand at the 3-point line and make shots, a La Howard's former teammate in Orlando, Ryan Anderson. Toronto also has a point-guard problem to solve. And while Jose Calderon has frequently been mentioned as trade bait, league sources say the Raptors are far more amenable to trading Kyle Lowry, who has not made many friends in his new surroundings. The Raptors gave up a sure lottery pick for him (which Houston subsequently sent to Oklahoma City in the James Harden trade), so Gasol might be a way to salvage that transaction. Plus, with the new CBA taking effect and shortening teams' windows for winning, a team like Toronto might feel better about committing 1 seasons to Gasol than using its cap room this summer to sign a lesser player for four years.

If this Lakers team focus on what they did the last two games, they will turn around the season.

There is no need to trade any one, just let go of the coach during the off season bring some that can coach the right style for the personnel they have problem solve.

Howard is not going any where, money talks and no one can give more than the Lakers.

If the Lakers do trade Pau or Howard this season then they're stupid and deserve whatever mess they get them selves into.

According to management they have plan and they should stick to it.

I agree. Why would they be that dumb to trade 2 major players? Thats nuts. The coach I could see for sure but this Pau trade thing is crazy. Bring back Bernie.
