Pau Gasol Sees ‘a Certain Level of Selfishness’ in Lakers’ Play

by March 09, 2012

In addition to the relentless trade rumors, Pau Gasol is also unhappy with the Los Angeles Lakers’ play lately (which has resulted in two horrific losses to Detroit and Washington.) From NBA Maniacs (via BDL): “Kobe Bryant missed more shots in Washington’s comeback win (22) than Gasol and Andrew Bynum combined to take (they finished 12 of 19). And that Bryant missed 9 of 10 attempts in the fourth quarter in a fruitless attempt to fire his Lakers back into the game from the perimeter. Either way, the back-to-back Laker losses to Detroit and Washington leave the championship hopefuls in a bad way, and Gasol (again, through this Internet translator) can’t be happy. Here’s the quote: ‘(There is) lack of concentration, overconfidence and a certain level of selfishness, in general. I’m not a person or a selfish player, but we have to move the ball more, and we have to look further the team game, because we have enough talent to use different players,’ said an upset Gasol to the Catalan public radio.”
