It seems that Bynum is now more dedicated to improving. This is a good sign!

L.A. Times: Back when Ron Artest was still introducing himself to his new teammates several months ago, Andrew Bynum declared a personal goal. He wanted to make the All-Star team this season.

It didn’t happen, which disappointed the 22-year-old, but perhaps led to some resolve.

“I’m going to go out there and keep balling the way I am,” Bynum said Friday. “It’s just given me the same goal to strive for next year and something else to push for this summer when I’m working on my game.”

    He just lack of domination. and he is still scared of NBA players, really, and i dont know why. He always duck down, spin outwards from the basket when he cought a pass or got an offensive rebound under the basket if theres opponent player next to him. and thats why he got blocked so many times in his first 2 seasons by other players who are shorter than him. Gasol, unlike bynum, always in ready mode when he is under the basket, he never duck away from basket. Although Bynum has improved this season bout that duck down problem, but you still can see this happen every now and then……. Buff up andy, just dunk the fuckkkkin ball will ya? Make the crowd heat up, make the fans happy, and you will be in all star every year
