This has been on the minds of some fans and now Bynum is ready to become a “beast” again. He recently talked about his production and what he can do to become more effective…
L.A. Times: The basketball hasn’t come Andrew Bynum’s way much in the first eight games.
He would like for that to change some.
Mostly, Bynum wants to change his approach when he does get the ball down low.
He figures that as the center for the Lakers, he can be more productive if he is more assertive.
“I really haven’t been attacking, so I’m going to start attacking on the block,” Bynum said. “Over all the games, I really haven’t scored much on the block play.”
Bynum is fifth on the team in scoring, averaging 9.9 points per game. Last season, before he got injured, Bynum averaged 13.1 points.
He has been a presence on defense, averaging three blocks per game, second-best in the NBA.
But his offense has been coming slow. He’s getting only 8.25 shots per game.
“I’m just not being aggressive,” Bynum said. “I think I need to go out there and be aggressive and assert myself on the block. I don’t think I’ve even scored with a post move yet this season.”
Most of Bynum’s offense has come on screen-and-roll plays and lob passes.
He wants to become more of a force inside.
“So, I’m going to try to attack the basket a little bit more,” Bynum said.
