All those "HAHAHA Lakers suck" tweets turning into snarky "Go ahead and celebrate your irrelevant victories" tweets sure do make me smile— Silver Screen & Roll (@LakersBlog_SSR) January 30, 2013
Pau Gasol on sitting out late in game:"I'm a competitor & think I bring a lot to the table. It's something I don't like & don't appreciate."— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) January 30, 2013
Pau's been professional through role change & was asked about not playing in 4th. But not finishing games upsets him more than not starting— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) January 30, 2013
Pau is a good guy. But to downplay frustration level misses big picture. If Lakers' struggles emerge, accepting roles becomes harder— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) January 30, 2013
It should be clear, Gasol was ASKED about not playing in the fourth. He didn't bring it up. That's a VERY important detail. AK— Kamenetzky Brothers (@KamBrothers) January 30, 2013
D'Antoni: "They went small. I couldn't get Pau back in there because of how the lineup was"— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) January 30, 2013

Kobe Bryant on passing: "Most of you guys thought I couldn't do it. That's pretty funny."— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) January 30, 2013
