When asked about the veteran’s comments, D’Antoni said he understood the consistent losing and justifiable frustration were what fueled the remarks, but felt that Gasol should have kept his feelings and comments “in house.”

After suffering their third straight loss tonight to the Memphis Grizzlies, Gasol was asked if he had any opinion on Mike D’Antoni’s response to his comments. Pau told the media during his post game interview on Time Warner Cable SportsNet what he thought:

He also expressed that his comments were ignited by emotions after a tough loss, but he felt they weren’t a big deal. Reporters were also curious how Gasol thought his teammates responded to his comments:

Pau is one of the only Lakers who has been playing consistent basketball every game this and one of the few players on the team with championship experience. His teammates understand that and know his experience and knowledge is valuable to the success of the team.
