Default Rondo's 10/10/20 or Bynum's 16/30... which impresses you more?

Since both players were involved in trade rumors up until recently, it seems fitting that they would both post great stat lines like this on the same evening.

Rajon Rondo: 10 points on 3-16 shooting, 10 boards, 20 assists.
Andrew Bynum: 16 points on 7-20 shooting, 30 boards.

While both left something to be desired as far as FG% is concerned, you still can't deny the quality of these numbers. Which one impresses you more? Which player should take the most credit for tonight's win?

He wasnt stat padding against scrubs like Bynum.

Rondo shot horrible and turned the ball over. Bynum nearly out rebounded the entire Spurs team.

Bynum > Rondo because of the shock factor, though Rondo's game was better. Is anyone actually surprised Rondo put up that line? He does stuff like that all the time... he's that good.

Side note: Bynum and Rondo would get along very well. They seem to have similar personalities. It's a shame we didn't trade for him (well, not really, but I would like to see them play together).

Rondo's done that before, and the Celtics barely beat the Hawks in OT. Bynum and the Lakers beat down the team with the best record in the West.

Other than being young and playing with chips on their shoulders, they don't appear to have similar personalities at all. Rondo keeps his attitude in check on the floor 9 times out of 10 and can lead a team; Bynum lets his attitude get the best of him, to the detriment of the team. That sort of hotheaded behavior doesn't lend itself to any sort of potential for team leadership.

So, because Rondo's done that before, it's less impressive? If Wilt scores 100 points, once a season, the feat somehow becomes devalued?

Nothing new though. And 20 assists has been done before a bunch of times. 100 points, however, has only been accomplished once. It's not like Rondo's statline is so amazing that I should just wet my pants after seeing it.

They are both moody, immature at times, egotistical, have a strong belief in themselves, and are rather introverted. I don't know, they seem pretty similar to me.
