Default I think the Lakers were a tougher matchup with Bynum

In a somewhat ironic twist, I think that teams are going to find that its easier to match up with the Lakers now that they no longer have 2 7'+ twin towers in Bynum and Gasol.

Even though Howard is a slightly better player than Bynum, he isn't quite big enough for "tower" status.

Thoughts?

howard play's like a legit 7 footer and will certainly make teams work just as hard on the offensive end to stop him and even harder on the defensive end as he will be swatting shots at a higher clip than drew

Slightly better? Dwight is better in every area but post moves... Dwight is dominating force on both sides of the ball.

Nash alone will make life so much easier for pau and Dwight. So no teams are going to have a lot of trouble guarding this team.

Default Re: I think the Lakers were a tougher matchup with Bynum

If your premise is that Dwight is shorter, it's kind of silly because with his athleticism he takes up a huge amount of space more than Bynum. If I told you i'd give you $1MM and you had to run by either Howard or Bynum to get it, who would want to face? Bynum is immobile compared to Howard. He's a much better defender, shot blocker and rebounder than Bynum too.

Remember at the slam dunk contest when Howard stuck that sticker way up hi on the glass? Bynum would need a ladder to do that

Dwight Howard will be a better fit. He lets Pau be Pau (his main focus being on the defensive end and boards).

Thoughts?

Nash arguably the best pick and roll PG

Dwight IS the best Pick and roll center

that alone is proof that Nash and Dwight would click A LOT faster and more effectively than Nash and Bynum

The Lakers need at much athleticism that they can get at this point.

not to mention that Dwight is just flat out better.

Lakers finished almost dead last in pick in roll plays last year.

Default Re: I think the Lakers were a tougher matchup with Bynum

I actually agree against a team like the Thunder in terms of the one on one match up. Perkins guards Dwight very well and seemed to struggle a bit with Bynum. Plus they could conceivably get away with Ibaka on Howard for a few minutes.

The difference really is going to be Nash though. The Lakers didn't have a great playmaker for the bigs over the last few years. That should be huge.

Bynum took nights I mean weeks off at time.

But hey we will see soon right.

Default Re: I think the Lakers were a tougher matchup with Bynum

Even if Bynum is a better player, which he isn't, I'd much rather have someone on the Lakers who shows up every single game and doesn't do retarded shit like chucking threes and storming off the court pouting.

Bynum had some great games last season, but he only sporadically brought his effort, was immature as hell, and some of his tantrums got him benched and therefore away from the court, where he was needed.
