Default Re: BYNUM/ HOWARD in 3 Years???

I think its hard to tell. But I don't really believe that Bynum will be the consistent rebounding beast that Howard is. I think Howard is and was at Bynum's age more mature than Bynum.

However Druw has amazing size, is developing nicely in the post. I wouldn't say that Howard was much better if at all than Bynum at this age. But I don't know. But my prediction is Howard.

As far as winning in years to come. I would have to go w/ bynum, he is surrounded w/ talented young players.

Farmar
Crit
Ariza
Turioff
Bynum

You can trade Kobe and Odom and pick up a couple of young talent to add to the mix. I think this would be a championship in 4 years.

Bynum is pretty darn good for a Kid that just turn 20 and getting better. I don't think DW had that big effect in the NBA when he was 20.

How do you know what he could play? I am saying when he is on the floor right now he is more effective than Dwight was at 20 years old. Bynum also doesn't have the benefit of being the first option on a bad team. If you compare Dwight right now at 22 to Bynum right now at 20 there are a few things Bynum actually does as good or better. He is already a superior passer to dwight and he is every bit as good at shot blocking. I will take Bynum in 5 years over Dwight in 5 years...don't know about 3 years though.

Dwight has already put up some sick numbers 30/15+ a couple times. Those are exceedingly rare numbers. On an average basis, it will be somewhat lower, but still outstanding. Dwight still has room to improve, yet he is already a beast.

So I predict Dwight will have better numbers throughout his career.

There is no way in hell that team wins the title in 4 years. Especially without Kobe.
It's people like that you that make Laker fans look like idiots.

Bynum 07'-08' 10.9 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 1.5 apg, 2.0 bpg, 26.1 mpg

Is it just me or is Bynum flat out superior compared to a 20 year old Dwight Howard in blocks and assists and every bit as good at scoring and rebounding. Bynum just gets less minutes than Howard at the same age.

fact is, comparison isn't really as ridiculous as some make it out to be.

dwight howard is one of greatest athletic freaks to EVER play the game, which can't be taught.
but bynum has much better natural feel for the game, especially on the offensive, and also a nearly 7'2'' frame - which also can't be taught...now it's really up to him how will he use it. don't really know how much is his current weight, but at that height he might have about 300 lbs when he fully develops...which is more than formidable and would make him nearly unstoppable in the low post.

all being said, howard will surely become one of greatest, if not even greatest, rebounder ever, but i wouldn't be surprised to see bynum become better offensive player, since low post skills are becoming more and more rare, and bynum definitely has "that" rare natural feel for post scoring.

why would you assume he is a Laker fan?
I certainly agree that there is no way that team wins anything without some real superstar talent around them. They are almost all role players, not stars.

People that think this isn't a contest in the long run need to learn basketball, Bynum has played this game for 5 years and has already made an impact on the biggest basketball stage of them all.

He has a softer touch and better footwork then Howard already, he needs to learn how to fight for position and how to move on defense more effeciently.

Name me a 20 year old besides LeBron James who had great awareness in the NBA? Bynum will be special, special, SPECIAL player for years to come...I'm thrilled he's a Laker.
