Let's take this. Every game loss means another seed lower. None of the other teams in seeding are letting up.
Stay humble
Don't assume anything
Play hard
Destroy everyone in your path and Win the championship

Only 5th game of the year where kcp took double digit shot. I don’t mind him chucking at all. He’s much more tolerable when he calls his shot

Great win without LBJ, AD, AD2

Kuz was huge .
I thought Gasol played very well too

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!
We need all that loose change. It'll also build chemistry (hopefully) for the long haul

Just watched Gasol post-game interview.
He’s not a happy camper because of the AD2 signing.
He spoke professionally and wasn’t pouting but was honest and said he signed here so he could help LBJ and AD win another ring but “things change rapidly in this league and you have to adjust”.
He also said it is hard for him to understand why he has to sit more “ specially if you haven’t done anything wrong”.

He did not seem happy at all.

Although he spoke like a professional, I was a little disappointed in his disposition.

First of all, thats on Pelinka. With guys who won here, there is a built in bond. Unselfishness, because they were all in together thru the bubble. We dumped dwight and Mcgee who know their roles and have no complaint about minutes.
Secondly, its not a huge deal because he is a professional. But still, this speaks to unity within the locker room and team.
Lastly, this now falls on Vogel Lap. Hes gotta figure out the rotations and structure of play, and find the balance to keep guys happy.

Chris Broussard .. That is not what he said:

"Things can change quickly in the NBA... But I'm committed to this team. It's a hard pill to swallow because I know I'm going to be out of the lineup at some point, but it's never easy for the player... We'll see" "It's not easy. But that's life, you have to adapt. Either you take it as a challenge or you move on."

That is not remotely the same as what you put out that mans mouth at all

Now let's do the same against the hobos. They depleted. We need to get this one as well.

Chris Broussard?! Ouch. I’ll ignore that dig.

But you quoted pretty much everything I mentioned except you conveniently left out the part where he said that it’s hard to understand the move specially when he hasn’t done anything wrong.

And if you are trying to suggest that Gasol didn’t express displeasure with the AD2 signing after listening to that interview, you are not paying close enough attention my friend.

Its no coincidence Marc upped his game as soon as he got some competition for his spot.

The defense is so slick though, pin point rotations are a thing of beauty with this team.
