Default Bynum's maximum potential

If Bynum reaches his maximum potential how good will he be? A. Tim Duncan's level B. David Robinson's level C. Yao Ming's level D. Gasol's level E. He won't be as good as any of the above.

Not on Duncan's level for sure unless somehow he develops god given touches over the next few years.

Realistically, slightly better than Yao/Robinson, but less dominant than Shaq...

With Kobe and Gasol in the team, I see this guy become another Marcus Camby but with much better offensive skills. He might average around 18, 15 at his prime.

He is averaging 13 and 10 in 29 minutes as a 20 year old and your saying 18 and 12 at best in his prime? Yao put up 13.5 and 8 while averaging 29 minutes as a 21 year old rookie.

I think Bynum will have multiple years of 25+ ppg/ 12+ rpg/ 2.5 bpg/ 3 apg seasons.

Bynum already has multiple moves that are unstoppable. Bynum might the highest ceiling reach in the nba. 7-1 with LONG arms.

I think over the next few years, he'll add a 10-15 jump shot, and get his FT shooting to 75%.

Take the whole package together and I see a MVP caliber player.

Would Gasol benefit from this as well?

except only within the last 12 months has he been given minutes with regularity. rookie year he averaged 7.8 minutes per, whereas yao was around 30. basically, its not like weve been waiting forever for bynum to improve. its been pretty rapid once he got minutes.

lets not forget he plays next to the best player in the nba while yao had steve, also, bynum is yet to be doubled teamed often and it would be interesting to see how he deals with it, howard and yao are 20/10 players while being doubled and fronted

but he does have the talent to be like howard and if he can develop a jumper he could even be better than dwight
