Kobe On Gasol: Put Your Big Boy Pants On, Adjust

Pau Gasol continues to struggle this season amid the change of the Los Angeles Lakers.

On Sunday, Gasol did not score in the second half and missed all four of his shots.

Gasol was benched in the fourth quarter again for Antawn Jamison.

"Put your big boy pants on. Just adjust," said Kobe Bryant. "You can't whine about it. I'm 34 years old. I'm running screen-and-rolls out there. Steve [Nash] is out and my [tail] is running up and down the court more than I have my entire career. You have to adjust to it. I stay after practice and work on my ball-handling, my screen and roll."

"We just have to be a more dynamic team," said Mike D'Antoni. "We're slow right now. Athletically, we're struggling against young teams that just run up and down."
