This was expected, if he wasn’t resigned he likely was fired.

Whether it is set in stone yet or not, it seems the Lakers are leaning toward keeping D’Antoni — which would anger Kobe Bryant and the fan base.
Apr 24, 2014, 2:32 PM EST
Gasol basically wants D’Antoni gone, but even then he likely moves on.

Pau Gasol maintains that he’d like to remain in Los Angeles beyond this season, but acknowledges that it’s unlikely at this point.
Apr 9, 2014, 2:07 AM EST
He built the Lakers back into a contender after Shaquille O’Neal left, now he’s going to get a shot at another rebuild.

What a strange source for a strange story
Apr 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EST
Multiple teams will be interested in Pau Gasol when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Apr 4, 2014, 2:05 PM EST
Pau Gasol is gone from the Lakers but some good teams — Chicago, Memphis — may well pick him up this summer.

Report: Los Angeles leaning toward shutting down Gasol for season
Apr 2, 2014, 12:29 PM EST
Somewhere, Kobe Bryant is shaking his head.
Apr 1, 2014, 2:58 PM EST
Remember when Mike D’Antoni just played small and forced you to adjust to him? He doesn’t have the horses for that in Los Angeles so he will go big against Portland with Pau Gasol retuning and starting next to Chris Kaman.

Pau Gasol never came out of the locker room for the second half of the Lakers win Sunday over the Magic, then took three IV bags of fluid and spent the night in the hospital. The official diagnosis was vertigo, and it kept Gasol out of the Lakers beat down of the Knicks on Tuesday…

“It used to drive me crazy that he was so lazy. You got to have the responsibility of working every single day. You can’t skate through s—-.” Kobe Bryant talking about Shaquille O’Neal in a profile of him in the latest edition of The New Yorker. You should go read the entire article, this is…

Tuesday night in the “we have Phil Jackson now and you don’t” showdown between New York and Los Angeles, the Knicks really need a win to keep any playoff hopes alive. The tanking Lakers could use another loss. Not surprisingly Pau Gasol will not be part of the Lakers lineup Tuesday night. Gaol sat out…

Lakers and Knicks meet Tuesday
Mar 24, 2014, 1:20 AM EST
Pau Gasol played his usual minutes in the first half of the Lakers eventual win over Orlando Sunday night, but didn’t come out of the locker room for the second half. The team announced that he had become ill at halftime complaining of dizziness and nausea. He did not return to the game. Then after…

Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

Pau Gasol believes that Kobe had every right to demand the Lakers put together a team capable of winning immediately.
Mar 10, 2014, 3:48 PM EST
Nobody thinks Mike D’Antoni is the long term answer for the Lakers, but what is the point of switching out coaches this late in a lost season?
Mar 8, 2014, 2:54 AM EST
The Lakers have lost a lot of games this season (42 to be exact), but the historic 48-point blowout loss to the Clippers Thursday night on national television hit the fan base hard. Many of these fans rooting for them to lose and get a better draft pick were embarrassed at the lack of defensive…
Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EST
This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…

It’s a little trick coaches use now and again, one Phil Jackson used to great effect — criticize a player to the media so he gets the message. A little humiliation can go a long way to getting a player to fall in line. But if a player uses the same tactic, oh lord, it’s…

Caron Butler was part of the trade that sent Eric Bledsoe to the Suns this past offseason, but he wasn’t in Phoenix for very long. He was dealt to Milwaukee in exchange for Ish Smith, a move that was expected to work for both sides, with Smith being an uptempo fit for Phoenix and with…
