Default Bynum and Farmar

They are gonna be great and already have chemistry and are both great defenders.Bynum had 14/15 and 5 blocks in 3 quarters 2 days ago and followed that performance with 21/7 and 1 block and farmar is averaging 18/6 in 29 minutes.

That's cool.

But it's just summer league ball. Don't get your hopes up.

Wait until they do it in the regular season at least.

Bynum will be a superstar it seems, I haven't seen enough of Farmar to say anything about him.

Ever seen Qyntel Woods or John Salmons play summer league ball?

Yeah, you would think they were destined to be All-Stars..........

How can they already have chemistry after 2 games? It takes a long time to develop chemistry.

Farmar is a horrible defender, and not much of a shooter either. Plus, he's got Udrih disease--can't bring the ball up against serious pressure.

That's just his NCAA profile though. I'm sure it won't translate to the NBA the way his summer-league exploits will. ;)

Bynum is most likely going to be good. Kid already shows he can handle himself at 18 in the paint against veteran guys. What I like about the kid is that he is hungry to play and is aggressive and strives to improve unlike those lazy Collins brothers or Samuel Delambert. He is getting better at his help defense the Lakers did well in drafting him. This kid is going to be special.
Farmar on the hand will need time. His ballhandling is subpar, his jumpshot is shaky and his defense is somewhat lousy. Just give him some time with Phil and the triangle though and he'll get decent eventually. Like Walton he's a smart kid and he'll learn to pick his spots and find a role on the Lakers much like Fisher did.

when I first saw him play at UCLA I didn't think he was that special. I just supported him b/c he was from Taft and thats like very close to where I used to live in the SFV. Everyone from back home said this kid was the truth so I was real eager to see what he could do for the Bruins. Despite his unpolished game what I did notice is his fearlessness he will take that clutch shot no matter what. Thats one thing he's definitely got going for him he has that winning attitude when the chips are down.

Lakers fans are fun. They are almost as fun as Raptor fans when it comes to overrating everything their team does.
