"I wanted to win the game. That's the reason." - Mike D'Antoni on why he benched Pau Gasol
 

 
He wasn't hurt. He didn't ask to come out. New Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni simply felt Antawn Jamison gave the Lakers a better chance to win the game. And when Jamison fouled out with 2:12 to go in the fourth quarter, D'Antoni opted to go with a small lineup featuring guards Chris Duhon, Jodie Meeks and Darius Morris.

Asked what he was thinking leaving Gasol, the four-time All-Star, on the bench during crunch time, D'Antoni said simply, "I was thinking, 'Boy, I'd like to win this game.' That was the reason."

fu*k your offer

but

I don't blame D'Antoni..

Pau been acting like a bi*ch out there for awhile now.

There's only so much longer I can defend and keeping him.

Like many have said before... he plays harder for Spain then he does for us.

I need that 2009-March 2011 Pau back

Carried is a understatement..

I think you mean the Pau who was actually aggressive back then, and had to come to LAL to get his first playoff win in his career



Not to mention Pau was gone from Games 3-6 in the 2010 Finals but barely reemerged in Game 7 vs the Celtics.
