07:28 AM ET 12.16 | For Marcin Gortat, the unrest continues. Gortat embraces being big, loves banging inside, and isn't caught up in following other 6-foot-11 or taller players who would prefer to parade around the perimeter shooting jumpers rather than mixing it up and throwing people around. For that reason, Gortat has grown frustrated with a lack of touches near the basket and said he would speak to Coach Randy Wittman about his role in the offense after a lackluster outing against the Los Angeles Clippers. "I don't like the position I play," Gortat said after [Saturday's loss]. ... "I'm constantly drifting more and more away from the basket. That's not my game. I'm capable of making one or two plays like that away from the basket, but I feel more comfortable underneath the basket."

The media speaking is bad.....But he is right. Why are they turning him into a neuterd pau?

Agreed! Why are they misusing him? He wants to play down low but the coach don't want him down low. Strange. Another Dumbtonie kind of thinking.
