are you kidding me? he has shown many many times his soft touch around the basket. If he developes, he can be very deadly in the post.

He is trying to make other teams think he is sold on Bynum so they will throw in extra incentives/players on any potential trade.
ahhh ok i follow your thinking....

JO is exactly what LA needs. A great defender and intimidator down low that can convert passes. And his low post games is far and away better than that of Kwame, Mihm and Bynum combined. He would actually give the Lakers a 2nd/3rd option, someone they could give the ball and see what happens.
Sure, you never know whether attitude will be a problem, but JO is talented enough to gamble.

Thank you.

And all this attitude talk, I call BS. It was all well and fine before the brawl.

JO helps the Lakers so much that it isn't even funny... soo sooo sooo sooooooo much.

I've been hating his attitude long before the brawl.

What's to hate?

Unlike you, I always loved his attitude. Such passion, intensity, energy etc..
Hard work as well.

I think Andrew Bynum appears to have the highest trade value of any player in the history of the NBA. seriously...

Stupid of Walsh to say that though...if you are trying to deal, you don't want to sound desperate and like ur salivating for a player.

Kind of like Yao Ming, really.

I remember at the previous world champs or it could have even been the olympics when he played for spain, it looked like someone stuck a bunger up his a-hole. He was playing like a madman. I'd never seen it before when he suited up for the grizzlies.
