Pau Gasol out as Lakers starter forever

Kevork Djansezian

The Los Angeles Lakers have underachieved to say the least. Fortunately for many of us, they are still incredibly entertaining.

The Los Angeles Lakers continue to be a hilarious basketball team. They entered the season with four all-stars in Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol. Then they fired their coach Mike Brown after five games. Now, it appears as though Pau Gasol is no longer in the starting lineup. And that's a permanent change, according to current Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni.

Pau has expressed some displeasure with being benched and not playing in the fourth quarter of close games so far in this season. I wonder how he'll feel about losing his starting job to Earl Clark?

For Laker fans, this is just another instance of the annoying drama that has constantly surrounded the 2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers. For non-Lakers fans, it's another example of just how hilarious the second best team in Los Angeles can be.
