Nurse on Gasol.


"Nurse on Gasol's frustration with role in LA"

Gasol is frustrated with his role? I did not know this. Did any of you?

To be fair, this was in pregame before Gasol talked about his commitment to the team.

Don’t understand why Gasol is DNP today. Wtf kind of decision is this with them being already short handed with 2 new players in the rotation.

Trading Gasol minutes for Drummond minutes is a losing proposition.

Vogel should at least give him some minutes, heck, he might pass better than Schro.

I think Gasol works great with the second team as a playmaker. No need to
sit him...

Vogel should be playing Gasol at the backup 5 and Harrell at the backup 4... like he said he would.

Mckinnie getting minutes over Gasol is a level of stupidity Vogel shouldn't have.

The Heat plays small, but I hope Vogel recognizes the potential of the Harrell/Gasol pairing against other teams.

So play small too by inserting G-Leaguers?

If that what it takes for Lakers to bring G-Leaguers then opponents should always play small. Suns already did it to them by benching Ayton and playing Saric at C, but it looks like Vogel didn't learn.

I don't know why Vogel is too reluctant doing it. Do it vs Nets, it's not as if they will win that game anyway. They have nothing to lose.

Marc went from 28 mins 13 points 9 rebounds 5 assists the previous game, to DNP tonight.

Doesn’t add up.

This. No AD. No Kuz. No LeBron. Drummond in foul trouble.

Our offense needed to be settled a ton of times in this game and having his iq and playmaking on the floor could have turned this game around several times. Really weird when your only playmaker in the rotation is Dennis who was having a rough time much of the night and you never think Marc who has looked great the last couple games could help that in at least minimal minutes? Even with Drummond in foul trouble as well...

The playing small thing is ridiculous when we have McKinnie & Mclemore using up a bunch of those minutes. Vogel is a much smarter coach then that, c'monnnn.

Not defending vogel, but getting AD2 acclimated to the team is number 1 priority right now. His 27 minutes is even low, ideal would be 32 to 35 minutes. Only way marc could’ve played is we cut trez’s minutes further or if we play trez at the 4. I dont mind seeing that experiment but maybe not against this heat team with ariza, butler and iggy playing the 4.

I get your point and agree. However, Vogel needs to be careful. They need a couple of Ws especially if Lebron and AD are more likely to come back on the back end of the month.

Right now, we need to scratch the experimenting and preseason stuff and just do whatever it takes to get a W. Vogel can worry about integration and chemistry when Lebron and AD are back because the Lakers will be playing Lebron ball offense again anyway.

Ultimately, i think vogel is doing exactly what you’re saying. He probably felt that marc is a bad matchup against this agile heat team and will just be exploited defensively. Unfortunately, all the stretch big minutes landed on kief. Results could’ve been different if we had kuz available.
