In my honest opinion, Bynum has more potential in his pinky finger then Kwame will ever have. Sound-off in the comments and tell us what you think!
L.A. Times: Andrew Bynum is playing well enough to nail down a starting spot, but will that be the case when Kwame Brown comes back?
Bynum has averaged 14.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and three blocked shots during the last six games, a pretty good run, although Coach Phil Jackson wasnoncommittal, then tilted toward Brown, then was noncommittal again when asked who would start when both centers were healthy.
“I have no comment on that because I haven’t really seen Kwame play,” Jackson said. “I would imagine Kwame would go back to being a starter. I’m not going to make a comment on that yet.”
Brown has missed 16 games because of a sprained left knee and ankle, although he could return next week.
He is not with the team for a four-game trip that ends Sunday in New York. He is averaging 4.3 points and five rebounds this season.
Bynum had 17 points and 11 rebounds in 42 minutes in the Lakers’ 94-90 loss Thursday to Cleveland.
