Lakers News: Pau Gasol Says Team Currently Lacks ‘Discipline’

With the Lakers having a roster full of players on expiring contracts, these guys are basically auditioning for the entire NBA, which can lead to selfish play at times.

Pau Gasol spoke with reporters on Time Warner Cable SportsNet about that issue, and said there is a simple solution to that problem:

The Lakers and Gasol in particular, are not used to being in this position, as the team that championship contenders can toy with for a half before rolling over them.

Great teams always have discipline, and it is usually on the coach to hold everyone accountable and instill discipline on the team. Gasol knows this so it is very possible that he was taking a shot at D’Antoni with this statement.

Gasol has not been shy about voicing his displeasure this season, and this is just another example of how losing breeds frustration. Kendall Marshall spoke about not being happy with the team’s play of late, and Jordan Farmar believes the lack of defined roles is hurting the team at this time.

If the Lakers are to save face this season, they will have to do it as a unit and it is on Mike D’Antoni to make sure this team stays together through what will be a daunting stretch run.
