      Gasol playing better recently because he doesn’t want to lose his starting position to Drummond. Lol.




      Aside from the obligatory "everyone plays better against the other team's second string", it's worth noting that a) there's not a lot of time to get Drummond familiar with the Lakers' (healthy) players, and b) the Lakers are likely treating Drummond's time as a potential audition for an MLE contract for a longer term period with their current core. Gasol is not nearly as much of an asset to their current core, even if he's playing well, as Drummond will be, just because of his age and his lower ceiling at this point.

        It shouldn't matter .. It may come down to match ups and Gasol in the playoffs maybe more effective against certain styles of Centers . Gasol made Boston's centre look like a HOF'er in last years playoffs

            The combination of NBA minutes, daily routine, feedback from coaches, health, accountability from the organization, & a little luck is what makes or breaks a career of a young NBA player.
            He was never the guy of Nick Nurse, shorter leash with little room to make mistakes. His offseason indiscretion and lack of judgment if it was true didnt help his cause.

            But the guy showed some flashes during his rookie season (was even considered to represent the Raptors in the ASG all rookie team) and in some games that he was given significant minutes but the number of DNPs may have a psychological impact to his overall development.

            I hope he can recover.
