Default Article: Los Angeles Times - Bynum's not here, but he made it all possible for Lakers

Interesting read...

Source: Bynum's not here, but he made it all possible for Lakers


Andrew Bynum's season effectively ended last week with Phil Jackson calling his chance of returning this spring "remote," which sounded so inevitable, it ran as a secondary item in Lakers notebooks.

Bynum's season lasted 35 games -- the most important 35 for the Lakers since Shaquille O'Neal left.

Between Kobe Bryant's rant about trading Bynum in May ("I mean, Jason Kidd, c'mon!") and Jan. 13 when Bynum's season was halted, he had turned Bryant around, from rage at management to respect for its judgment, from demanding a trade to a team that could win a title to realizing, like Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz," there was no place like home.

The night after Bynum was lost, Bryant ended months of cool detachment at their surprising start with the 10 words that meant it was morning again in Lakerdom:

"We're a championship-caliber team with him in the lineup."
