Amid all the attention heaped upon the return of Pau Gasol, the Lakers’ 22-year-old center served notice that, um, he’s still playing too.

Bynum had 25 points on nine-for-11 shooting in the Lakers’ 101-85 victory Sunday over the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also had nine rebounds and made all seven of his free throws in almost 29 minutes.

Toronto forward-center Chris Bosh is the only player in the league averaging more than 20 points and 10 rebounds a game, though Bynum is close to being there too.

He is now averaging 19.9 points and 11.2 rebounds.

    “I’ve got to keep it up”….best thing Bynum has said so far this season. If he can be as consistent as Pau has been since joining this squad, then the All Star team will take care of itself.
