Kobe Bryant Wants Pau Gasol More Involved in Offense

Pau Gasol and Mike D'AntoniNothing is going right in Los Angeles right now for Lakers fans as the team is currently two games under .500 and is coming off a tough loss to the Clippers.

As of right now, the Lakers are 15-17 and they are no where close to championship form. In fact, if the playoffs were to start today, the Lakers would be watching every game at home as they are sitting in the 11th spot in the Western Conference. The Lakers fell to the Clippers on Friday night, and the match was hard to watch for many fans. Even though the Lakers made a great run in the fourth quarter, the Clippers dominated the Lakers for most of the game.

After the game, Kobe Bryant talked to reporters about the Lakers’ offense and ESPN 710 Radio tweeted that Bryant wants more touches for Pau Gasol.

Gasol’s number was not called very often during the game on Friday and it was clear that he was frustrated with the looks he was getting on the court. Gasol has certain spots where he feels comfortable, but he has not been getting the ball where he likes.

In Friday night’s game, Gasol scored only two points on 1-6 shooting and had a plus/minus of -20. It was certainly one of Gasol’s worst games with the Lakers, and the team will need him to more productive moving forward if they want to be successful. There is no doubt Gasol is one of the most talented big men in the NBA; however, he hasn’t been playing like it this season.
