Default Andrew Bynum critiques the Lakers

Bynum still kept tabs on the Lakers enough to critique their play.

"They have to make a commitment to defense," Bynum said. "They're going to have to post the ball up. They need a system to do that. Obviously, the talent is there to win a championship from a starters' point of view.

"They're

struggling off the bench. That could hurt."
Bynum's been hurt too, nursing bone bruises in both knees that have prevented him from playing in a game this season.

First came the injury to his right knee after having a procedure in Germany during the offseason. Then, Bynum went bowling and hurt his left knee.

You left out the best part where Bynum says the Lakers traded the #1 center in the league for the #2

Phil Jackson is incompetent? Bynum had his best season ever under Mike Brown so you can't be talking about him holding Bynum back

Bynum is a very good player, injured or not. The thing about him, and most NBA players is that they are in the NBA for different reasons. Honestly, some of these guys are well rounded fellows, and basketball is not their only love. Some of these guys have other interests in education. Some of them love their families. I can only count few on one hand who actually care so much about the game to where they breathe it off the court as well.

Kobe
D-Rose are the only guys who live basketball everywhere at all times in their life.

There is a category of guys who want to win championships.

Kobe
TD
Durant
D-Rose
CP3
Carmelo
Deron Williams
Russel Westbrook
Tony Parker
Manu Ginobli

There are a few guys i didn't mention here. Now you have "every one else" that plays the game, they're good at it, but have other interests that may take up time.

Bynum is the best example of that along with many others.

Then you have the rest who simply like to score a lot whether the team is good or not (Jamaal Crawford).


I don't know anyone else in this category as I follow mostly laker players for obvious reasons.

The point of my post is, some of these guys play basketball and they're good at it. However do not take it seriously enough to risk injury. They're good enough to put out on the floor. Just don't expect everyone to be like Kobe with that infinite fire.

Bynum is the only one who actually thrived under Mike. However I will give it to you that Bynum never really liked Brown and it was really obvious.

So.....you are crediting MB for Bynum's play???
I guess you would credit 'Antoni for Kobe being the NBA's leading scorer this year too
It's not like either coach is giving out helpful pearls of wisdom.

No not necessarily. Think about it...MB had not much of anything (but I still love his defense). So what does he do for offense? He gives it to the best scoring option on the floor to help cover his deficiencies as an offensive coach. So what did Bynum do? He would shoot over 2 or 3 defenders, and would still make it because he was just THAT good. Remember his game winning shot against the celtics?

Phil Jackson said it himself when Bynum got injured once. "We're going to miss his presence down low. He can shoot over 3 or 4 defenders".

So it wasn't necessarily Mike Brown's system that made Bynum better. But when all else failed, he would give the ball either to Kobe or Bynum to see what they could do with it, and they both delivered. Not necessarily a system, but he did love utilizing Bynum. Anyways MB isn't here anymore so lets just think about other things lol.
