08:07 AM ET 01.22 | Another day, another fire for the Los Angeles locker room. The revolving Lakers' 2012-13 season spun off in the latest new direction Monday night with Pau Gasol being sent against his will to take on a bench role. But is it evolving? Dwight Howard came away disgruntled on a night when Gasol tried to keep his spirits up. ... Howard was unhappy after getting just five field-goal attempts in the loss, rarely getting the ball early in the game. "Look at the stat sheet," Howard said. "Look at the stat sheet." Asked how he can get more shots, Howard said: "It's simple. Play inside-out." Asked if it is out of his power, he said quietly: "Just continue to play. Not get frustrated. As hard as it is, can't get frustrated."

QUOTE(#14):

If I'm the Lakers.... I trade DH to Atlanta for Josh Smith and someone else. Pau goes back to being the starting 5. I don't think DH will have the patience to watch Kobe try to go for MJ's scoring title....

Or they could trade him to the Celtics for Sullinger, Green and a draft pick.
