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.”
Earlier this week, Bynum was worried there wouldn’t be a true center on the Western Conference team, a possibility that became reality when the reserves were announced.
Phoenix’s Amare Stoudemire was voted to start at center by the fans, and Pau Gasol and Tim Duncan are power forwards who probably will play some center at the Feb. 14 game.
“I pretty much knew what was going on,” said Bynum, who earlier called the process of selecting reserves “political.”
