Re: Andrew Bynum vs Brook Lopez
Lopez is still adjusting to the NBA, whereas Bynum, while young, is still technically in his fourth year or something. Statistically they're the same, but Lopez did play on a slower team (fewer shots and rebounds) without a Kobe or Gasol to draw attention away from him. The Nets were for all intents and purposes the Devin Harris and Vince Carter show with Lopez the third option without anyone to really set him up. I mean, Harris and Carter are good passers, but neither's really looking to feed the post, whereas LA's got Odom setting people up (although I can't think of him and Bynum ever being on the floor together).
