JO's first two years:
10.2 MPG (avg 4/3 and 0.6 blocks on 45%)
13.5 MPG (avg 4/3 and 1 block on 48%)
He was 19 and 20 yrs old
Bynum's first two years:
2.0 MPG (avg 2/2)
21.9 MPG (avg 8/6 and 1.6 blocks on 56%)
He was 18 and 19 yrs old.
Look if you want to predict that Bynum wont be as good as O'neal or will flat out not get anywhere...go ahead but to label him a bust at this stage is just ignorant.
You bring up good points, Laker fan. I guess we should give Bynum more time. Hate to say it, but I will man up and say it: hotsizzle just owned me.
