Lakers News: Pau Gasol Says Team Offense Must Be Less Kobe-Focused

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Los Angeles LakersLast night’s Lakers loss to the Milwaukee Bucks was the latest of a season of inexplicable losses that have this team on the verge of missing the postseason. As the team continues to unravel, whether through injuries or just poor play, nothing seems to work correctly for L.A. for an extended period of time.

Following the loss, forward Pau Gasol mentioned the team’s offense, particularly Kobe Bryant, as one of the reasons for the team’s struggles in Milwaukee, according to Kevin Ding of the O.C. Register.

 

Bryant took 17 shots on Thursday, making six of them, but also made it to the free throw line for 20 attempts. While that is generally a good thing, on nights like this it further indicates the fact that he dominated the ball.

Ultimately Kobe left Milwaukee with bone spurs in his left foot, and the Lakers limped back to California preparing for a showdown on Saturday with the Kings.

Still, for those looking to manufacture more drama (as if this team needs any), Gasol did mention to Steve Aschburner of NBA.com after the game that he’s hopeful Kobe and the rest of the team can get healthier heading into Sacramento.

“Hopefully Kobe will be healthy for the next game. Steve will be healthy. I’ll get healthier and we’ll continue to move forward.”

    I think the concentration is going in the wrong place! Stop bashing the good players and start telling it like it is! We would have won the last game had Dwight gotten most of his free throws! Wake up Coach, You saw his play against his home team! ??????

    @All you dumb and fake Lakers Fans. Come on people LA didnt loose this game or any of the other games this season due to Kobe! Lets state the obvious LA lost these game because of lack effort on the defensive end. Kobe DIDNT play against the Suns and we lost!!!! Kobe has kept LA in alot of games people. Pau needs to stop crying about the offense we aren’t loosing because of Kobe or offensive. Defensive wins championships people! Defense is needed from all 5. Pau is SLOW and can’t guard anyone, he is not the rebounder we need from a 7’0 footer! Why wasnt saying anything about DEFENSE????? All you fake Lakers fans would see that without Kobe this season LA would be a lottery team!! Pau needs to shut up and rebound and play team defense, he is irrelevant plus Clark is a better being able to move his feet. Pau suck! Defensive rebounding is what he needs to focus on.

    This season practically ended against the Wizards. I do not think that the guys really believe in themselves. If we do not win the next two games, April will turn out to be ugly… I think it is time to look ahead. I advise you Buss Family, do yourself a favor and In May, fire Dumbtoni, in July trade Pau (and the entire team if necessary), do whatever it takes to get Chris Paul, Kevin Love and sign D12. Please. Concentrate on the future.
