Lakers Examiner: After a two-week long process that involved a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, you have decided that Andrew Bynum’s OFFICIAL nickname is… Bynumite.

I couldn’t be happier with the nickname (though my vote went to Mountain Drew). This is exactly what I was looking for when I started the contest, so I thank those of you that suggested names and voted.

The voting results were as follows…

  1. Bynumite, 40.86%
  2. Mountain Drew, 21.09%
  3. A-Bomb, 19.03%
  4. Bynusaur, 11.06%
  5. The Brute, 7.96%

As you can see, it was more of a landslide than I expected, but with close to 700 votes we got a pretty good sense of what people were thinking.

  • lakeshow

    i know that it’s a great pun…bynum and dynamite, but seriously it just sounds so gay!

    what opponent is gonna take this name seriously? think about it fellas? some reporter is gonna ask dwight howard aka “superman” how he’s gonna match up against “bynumite”? what a joke!

    think kg’s gonna take “bynumite” on the serious?
    how about shaq, “the diesel”?
    if i were kendrick perkins, i’d laugh in his face every time i play him!

    this is what happens when the “fans” vote on $hit! LOL!

    it’s absolutely ridiculous!

    fraud….28/15 is never as good when you give up 34/13…I dont think you idiots understand that, neither big al or “bynumite” are interested in defense

  • joe grande

    that is a ****in bad nickname

  • showtimelakes

    chill out guys it’s for fun…..i think bynum has officially broken out of his funk. But next is working on shutting down his opponents below their average.

    Agree. he is soft!!!!!!!!

  • KD

    That sucks! That has to be one of the corniest names i’ve ever heard.

  • KD

    Hopefully people don’t start calling him that,
    ’cause it’ll give the rest of the league and sports analyst more reason to label the lakers as soft!

  • pauu

    Wow I guess I have to call him the since its, “OFFICIAL”

    I cant believe half of those names were even voted for. Just because something rhymes doesnt mean it should be used. And Mountain Drew, are you kidding me. Thats the stupidest name Ive ever heard.

    You know what would make it “OFFICIAL”? If Bynum actually endorsed it, not a whole bunch of 17-22yr old kids who drink a particular brand of soda

  • Andrew Bynum

    Bynumite???

    Call me SOCKS, that atleast has an actual story behind it [funny] and its an original nickname not initials with a number
