08:17 AM ET 05.22 | Andrew Bynum isn't the only one who isn't quite sure of his future in Los Angeles after the Lakers' Game 5, season-ending loss to the Thunder. The game really started to get away from the Lakers early in the fourth quarter, when [Kobe Bryant] was on the bench and [Pau Gasol] failed to inspire the four teammates going out there alongside him with a speech about keeping the effort coming. "I've got to be able to rest Kobe a few minutes here and there," Brown said. "We didn't do a good job handling it." Gasol said he and Bryant need to work on their relationship more "through the season," playing more two-man basketball also. Gasol again said he doesn't want to be traded, but added: "I don't know if that's mutual."

Now we cooking? The Lakers tanked last night . That stupid foul and the technical at the end of the first half pretty much finished them off.

Doomed by their own big mouths and "tough guy" act.

The one thing the Lakers have NEVER EVER been are tough guys.

Poor Pau. He and Bynum will always be to blame even though they tried to not involve them early in the game. He got most his points from put backs.

Kobe came out set on winning the game all by himself...

That never works for him. But he sure is getting almost as good as LBNique at pointing fingers at his teammates and blaming them.

Kobe Bryant: 42 pts.....0 assists. Is that even possible? He didn??t pass it by accident even once?

Lakers fans need to blame the Thunder for kicking their arse.

The Thunder were the faster, younger team.... and maybe a bit better..... I thought LA would have had more fight in em' but i guess not.....

I dedicate this glorious loss to all the obnoxious, over-the-top, arrogant cry-baby Laker homers out there who are crying in Lakerland and pointing fingers at everybody....you deserve it!!!!

Tomorrow's thread.

Kobe gives ultimatum, either trade me or Gasol.

Just going by past history because nothing is ever Bryant's fault. I remember when he wanted to get rid of Bynum when he blamed Bynum for something.

Kobe throws up 33 shots last night, goes 1-6 from 3pt land and had 0 assists.

Kobe loves the ball and doesn't play well with others, same problem, different cast.

Kobe went out guns blazing. Bynum had 4 rebounds in 35 minutes. He plays when he wants to.

I Know.... Kobe needs to see his arse down and say if you don't go out their and Give it you all every game, you'll be shipped out.....

I'm going to enjoy all the wannabe GM's who trade Gasol for some other teams best player.

Because, as we all know, every GM is getting in line for Gasol because an over 30 big man is exactly who you build a franchise around.

Good luck, they'd be better off using the amnesty clause.
