Funny a few weeks ago people were commenting like Lakers were better without Bynum, and now he is the third best offensive center in the league...
:lol
Only fake Lakers fans think Bynum sucks and lakers are better with out him


The magic button has been pushed. The championship is LA's to lose.

They can just ride Bynum to the 4-0 sweep vs the Thunder, then bring on whoever's next.

Lakers look good. We could probably forfeit the rest of the playoffs and go ahead and give them the title.

OKC is a talented team but a very young team whose best player is 21 and has never played in the playoffs before. Their team has no playoff experience, is young, and are on the road against the dfending champs. So them being up 12 right now isn't really allthat surprising. OKC is undersized and lack perimeter shooting. WIth that said, this LA team is going to be very hard for anyone in the East or West to beat.

LA_Showtime
04-18-2010, 04:08 PM
Exactly what I thought would happen. Durant will score, but he's not going to be shooting as effectively as he did in the regular season. And now, apparently Westbrook finally got the memo that he's got Derek Fisher on him.

BTW, Fisher hit a couple of nice shots, but even early in the game he was killing the Lakers. Two of shots led directly to Thunder fast break points. SMH.

LOL @ ESPN/ABC still bringing up Lebron after mentioning Kobe. Give it a rest ESPN, we know it'll be big bucks if LA and CLE go to the finals but damn

The Lakers should just put Shannon Brown on Westbrook. He's fast enough and strong enough to stay in front of him, and his idiotic tendency to go under screens wouldn't hurt the Lakers because Westbrook's not a great outside shooter.
Brown has slow lateral movement he can't stay infront of Westbrook but he's our best hope besides Artest. DO you think Kobe could lockup Westbrook?

So I guess Laker fans know Kobe still hasn't won a title without a dominant big man. Now Bynum is no where near Shaq? But the combo of Bynum and Gasol? Yeah, just as good.

Which is it? Kobe won his 4th by himself, or is it because he had an all star power forward and Bynum?

No. Brown's lateral movement isn't that bad. He lacks the fundamentals more than the God given abilities. He'd do a better job than Kobe, although Kobe could probably limit him in stretches.

The Lakers aren't going to put the Thunder away unless someone else steps up. Similar to the beginning of the year, the Lakers talented offensive players are masking their inability to run the triangle and get easy shots. They have to pound the ball inside and try and get Gasol going.

Bynum is a beast and the future of the Lakers,

I think next year the Lakers should play with the big guys (Gasol and Bynum) as the first options..
