Bynum really has a huge advantage in height and length. I also think Bynum is more gifted when it comes to soft touch and low post scoring. Bynum has 4 inches in height and 2-3 inches in wingspan on Howard which is huge at the C position. Bynum is still 2 years younger than Howard and hasn't had the benefit of the same amount of touches. I do think Bynum is more naturally gifted in low post scoring and he is already as good as Howard at shot blocking and superior at passing. It isn't as absurd as many people think to say Bynum could be better. Right now Howard is far ahead of Bynum though.

People flame the comparison between Jefferson, a 21/11 player versus Howard a 24/14 player.

But it's "Ok" to compare a 9/9 player with a 25/14 player?

DIE.

Howard can carry a team by himself essentially.

Bynum is going to be a good big for a long time, but not of DHoward's level, just not as dominant.

It's ok because this 9/9 guy has only a couple years in the league not to mention he is 20 years old with limited minutes.

Jefferson is 22 and averages 21/11. I don't see how the 9/9 comparison is more valid, at all.

Contrary to what you may believe, it is in no way guaranteed that Bynum's going to be a great player. My point was not that Bynum couldn't be a good player. Rather, it's that Howard is already a great player. So yes, it would be utterly absurd to pass up a young, great player for a slightly younger player, with a lower ceiling, who may not even become great. Understand?

I would take Howard.

Howard has the size and strength to get position on anyone. He has a young PG that can get him the ball and a system/coach that wants to get him the ball. Bynum will be part of the triangle and never the focal point for as long as Kobe is there.

I see this comparison much like a Yao/Shaq comparison. Length and soft hands versus size and power. Anyone that would take Yao over Shaq (not counting this year) is absurd.

Check back in 3 years, when Bynum might have grown into his potential.

Bynum's only limit will be Bynum's committment to improving. He has all the skills that God could give him. They key is whether or not he can continue to work hard to improve.

Howard is incredible, and he clearly gets the edge from me now and into the future. I love watching his game and I think he's got a great attitude and work ethic. He is someone you build a team around right now. Not sure I could say that about Bynum now or in three years.

The one caveat is that Bynum's rate of improvement has been no less than spectacular. The guy had not played basketball formally before something like 18 high school games, and poof, he's in the NBA? So, he's got VERY low mileage which could help him in having a long and prosperous career.

Bynum currently averages about 26 minutes a game... he has still not learned how to pace himself through the game and a season, so the Lakers are taking it as slowly as possible.

If Bynum's so great, why doesn't he play more minutes? Are you implying that Phil Jackson, one of the greatest coaches of all time, is to dumb to play him significant minutes?

Dude, Jefferson is clearly twice the player Bynum is right now.
