Pau Gasol has been in four entirely different offenses the last three seasons. It's pretty obvious which one he prefers.
The Lakers' four-time All-Star did everything but give a figurative hug to the triangle offense Monday.
"It put me in a natural position for me, which was post. I could score and I could pass," he said. "It was a perfect fit for me when I got here and Andrew [Bynum] was out. I had a lot of minutes and it was a need to cover.
"Now it's a different personnel, different need, different look, different system, different positioning. As a professional, you adjust to a different position in your company and try to do your best so the company still finds you a valuable asset and the company still performs as well as it did before."
Gasol didn't prosper in either of Mike Brown's offenses, including the short-lived Princeton scheme earlier this season. More recently, he has been slow to adapt to Coach Mike D'Antoni's push-the-pace sets.
