The iPhone alarm clock bug that was reported on the New Year’s Eve, was supposed to be auto-fix for all on January 3rd but it didn’t. Today ESPN reports the glitch made three Lakers late to their pre-game shoot around.
Three Lakers in all said they didn’t get up on time because the alarm clocks on their iPhones malfunctioned that morning, but Pau Gasol was the only one who didn’t show up at all, sources said. Luke Walton was one of the other two Lakers who arrived late. The third Laker wasn’t identified but sources said it was not Kobe Bryant.
Pau Gasol claimed he missed the practice because he overslept due to the iPhone alarm clock issue. Gasol also was “sleep-walking” through most of the game and the Lakers ended up losing.
Gasol said Lakers head coach Phil Jackson didn’t bring up his or his teammates’ tardiness in the locker room Sunday night following in the loss to Memphis.
“No, I don’t think that would be fair,” Gasol said.
Gasol had 10 points, eight rebounds and five turnovers with no assists in 32 minutes of action in the Lakers’ 104-85 loss.
