Mike D’Antoni Disturbed; Responds to Gasol

on

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni says he was disappointed that Pau Gasol took him to task through the media and also vowed Wednesday to continue to employ a small-ball lineup down the stretch this season.

“The thing I just don’t appreciate … You just keep it in-house,” D’Antoni said before the Lakers’ 108-103 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. “It’s very easy just to come over and talk about your frustrations. We’ll try to work something out. We’ll figure something out.

“But to go to (the media) and to do it in the papers, that’s disturbing. I just don’t think that’s the way to go and people should understand that we’re all trying to solve the same problem, so let’s just put our heads together and do the best we can.”

“Yes, there was some frustration, but I don’t think it was nothing out of line or nothing that went too far,” (Pau) Gasol said. “I stated something obvious, to me. I don’t think I said anything too crazy.”
