Before practice on Monday, Coach Mike D'Antoni said all of his players know their roles -- they just may not accept them.
" 'I don't know my role.' Yeah, you do," said D'Antoni. "Everybody knows their role. We spell it out every day."
Various Lakers have expressed concern this season about where they fit in the offense -- or the team -- including Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Antawn Jamison.
Jamison disappeared from the rotation for a long stretch, finally snapping to media about his frustration. Gasol was openly unhappy with his role playing outside of the low post and coming off the bench.
