Amazing in the heat of the NBA Finals two of the future greats in all the centers in the NBA plan to work out together!
O.C. Register: Andrew Bynum has talked about working out with Dwight Howard before, and now Howard is suggesting it will happen. The two young centers both go to Atlanta, Howard’s hometown and where Bynum’s trainer is headquartered, during the offseason, so it’s logical.
Bynum is also good friends with Howard’s high-school teammate, former Laker Javaris Crittenton. Even though Crittenton was traded by the Lakers in the Pau Gasol deal last season, Crittenton showed up during the Lakers’ playoff run at one of the games.
“We’ve already talked yesterday (during Game 1) about working out together during the summer,” Howard said. “He wants to get a little bit more toned up, and I’ve got some workout regimens for him.”
Howard said he noticed Bynum shooting that nice jumper early this season and asked himself: “Is that really Andrew?”
Although Howard referred to himself and Bynum as “dinosaurs” given how few traditional big men exist in today’s game, Bynum said: “I see us as kind of the rebirth at that position. It gets people to the Finals.”
