Agreed. Saying shit like "The season starts Sunday" gives every player a free pass for the shitty team effort so far this season.I actually have this one written off as a loss. If Gasol plays, I'll give them a +3 margin of victory.
The fact that "the season starts Sunday" reinforces the notion that Dantoni has installed no urgency into this team. No leadership whatsoever. A coach should set measurable goals instead of saying stuff like "well...hopefully we will be good when Nash gets back".
Pau Gasol (concussion) will not play tonight. Dwight Howard (shoulder) will be re-evaluated before the game tonight.
-Mike TrudellSo there’s a possibility that Howard could return tonight, but we won’t know until pregame at Staples. Gasol will be tested again tomorrow.
