Default Talking about the emergence of Andrew Bynum

He's dropped 30 points more than once now this season. He's been great as of late. Can laker fans start considering him to be better than Dwight Howard?

If he wouldn't do silly things like loafing against the Wizards we could begin the conversation. Clearly he's on the way and has the ability but he still has much growing up to do IMO. I absolutely love the work that Darvin Ham has done with him on his footwork, I've been begging for someone to teach him.

Let's be real, Andrew Bynum has only been doing it this season, Dwight has been doing this for 5+ year, plus Dwight never had a major injury.

Yeah, I think the thing that worries Lakers fans the most is his health. While he's been good this season and those other injuries really were freak accidents who knows what kind of toll they took on his body. I think Bynum offensively actually has a few more post moves than Howard. I think Howard is a far better defender who can get up and down the court better though. It really sounds like Howard isn't going to be a Laker anyhow, so it's not something I'm even concerned with.

I think you can make a legitimate argument for Andrew Bynum as being the most skilled center in the NBA today, and therefore arguably the best center in the NBA. There are a lot of things that Drew does better than Dwight Howard, even though Howard is the most freakish athlete that the center position has ever seen. Drew is a very skilled offensive player, with an offensive game that I think is overall more polished than D12.

Far, Far more athletic than Howard could ever dream of being.

Easy now DK, Kkinchen is amongst laker brothers

He makes some good points. Bynum is better than Dwight in a lot of areas. Bynum has a better shot and a better combination of post moves. Today Bynum mentioned Kobe gives him a lot of pointers on footwork. Couldn't have asked for better advice from the best at footwork. One thing about Bynum too is that he is built for the center position. He's not as athletic as D12, but he's taller, stronger, and his lack of athleticism allows him to utilize other players as he has shown improvement in his passing compared to when the season first started.

Right now as a GM in Orlando, im saying "damn....Coulda had Bynum"

Nah, I don't think that came out the wrong way......besides, I had Kkinchen's back when nobody else did, I always defended him from the previous moderators vicious attacks....I think he remembers that.
My comment was a tongue in cheek reminder about Wilt.

On r=the other hand Drew is beasting it up out there. At this point I wouldn't want the Lakers to do a Bynum Dwight swap.

I'm not sure I ever did.

Go back and read my posts. Quote me.
I never wanted to deal Bynum for Dwight because Dwight is Dwight. He's not changing. Andrew can be the real deal.
Offensively, he has so much potential, it's crazy. He's also a legitimate 7 footer who plays defense, rebounds, and shot blocks.

He's younger and a lot bigger.
I love Andrew's game

I wouldn't bet my money against the idea that Bynum will be better than Dwight in the next couple of years
