L.A. Times: Andrew Bynum, forgotten man?
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.
Are the All-Star voters paying attention?
“I hope to make it,” Bynum said. “That’s really a goal I had coming into this season. I think I’m playing at the level I need to be playing. All I can do is get votes now. I’ve got to keep it up.”
