Default Bynum

The Lakers are looking at Kwame Brown exclusively as a center, meaning Andrew Bynum can be had. The question is, for what/ Since he has no college experience and only one unrevealing year of pro ball, nobody really knows what the New Jersey 7-footer is worth . . .

It's never a good idea to quote Peter Vecsey, but if the Lakers are willing to trade Bynum, what should we get in return?

there are teams out there that believe he has a lot of potential and will give us something good in return.

Indiana Wanted Bynum if we were going to get Artest in return but we didnt wanna give Bynum up.

At the trading deadline it was talked about how we would get jamaal crawford and Channing frye but that didn't go down because they wanted bynum also.

so there are other teams that think he is great.

besides it isn't like hes just some kid the scouts saw. they actually saw that he had pure athleticism and skills as a center so they projected him as a to 10 pick. and sure enough we drafted him at 10.

word is Bynum is improving and kareem Abdul jabbar said that he has done so well that he deserves minutes now.

Bynum is talented. The coaching staff is raving about his performance in practice. Next year, I hope Phil gives him consistent minutes backing up Kwame Brown, something around 14 minutes a game.

He's still young and has a lot to learn, but in this day and age, if you have a young guy who could become a really good seven footer, you can't give up for nothing. Those kinds of guys are a rarity these days.

and plus the lakers are very fortunate to have had a long chain of hall of fame centers.

You never know. he doesn't have to average 25 ppg.

he can be the defender that bill russel once was.

Greatness can be recognized in many different forms.
i expect him in 4-6 years to be a 17 ppg, 11 rpg, and 2 bpg type of guy

he is veryy athletic

It sure is early to give up on Andrew Bynum.

But as for kwame brown, I don't think that him becoming a center means they've given up on bynum. It just means they think Brown is best suited for just being a banging center who slams into people and uses his size more than his skills

They won't get anything back for Bynum. He's showed nothing but LITTLE potential. He should be a backup center, or third string center, for the rest of his career.

Isn't it too early to write bynum off?

Or is he so bad that it's NOT too early?

okay....c'mon... the boy is big.... very atletic and can block shots hes already better than most third string centers..so to say that he will be lower than that for the rest of his career is kinda stupid.... c'mon the boi is only 18 yrs old and is working wit k.a.j.....c'mon why trade him...in 4 yrs. hes going to be sick.. why give up now..they need to keep that boi...am tellin u.. they donty make bois that big and athletic anymore... its hard to find a young big man thats very athletic and talented...why trade what we found
Remember....that dunk on shaq???

Very hard to teach coordination, he looks slow on his feet too. From a talent and potential perspective, he just doesn't seem to have "it". Like someone else has said, he'll be a Diop at the very best.

New poster here.

My take on Bynum is that some people overhype him because of the fact that he is so young and big and has "potential". It takes more than that to guarantee succeww. Does he have a great future? I think he does but there is absolutely no certainty. He has shown nothing this season. His dunk on Shaq is the highlight of the season. I don't doubt he is doing decent in practice and improving but he really has nowhere else to go but up. We need to see it translate come game time.

He will progress slowly and he could develop into the type of Center the Lakers envisioned when they drafted him, but right now he is what he is: A very raw Center whose future is very cloudy.

What will he command in a trade? I don't know. Teams have asked for him (Indiana, New York for example) but did they ask for him because they were high on him or because there isn't anything else on the Lakers worth asking for? Probably a mix of both and in the end it could get a good return but given his "potential", he should just be kept.

You don't go into the NBA a great right away.

Coordination is probably difficult to teach but not impossible. It's something he can work on and become good at it eventually but right now hes a young dude that hasn't receieved much playing time either.

Don't just think about the Shaq highlight either. He also had a career high 16 points vs. new York
