That shouldn't be too hard, since I never did that.

I called you "spoiled bastards."


It means the same thing.

I also noticed you missed my point about the Mavs and what will happen in Bynum's playoff performances.

I bet you'd be [expletive]ing if Bynum averages 2 rebounds per game in the NBA Finals. :coffee:Oh, and see MDI's post about the Mavs.

That's the thing. He's averaging eight, in the 30 minutes per game he plays. That's pretty decent, considering Gasol, Odom, and Kobe grab a majority of the rebounds as well.

How you going to explain averaging 6.1 boards this month?

It actually doesn't. You can be a real fan and be spoiled. You can also be a fake fan and be spoiled.

And since you responded before my edit, I added:

Actually, let me clarify:

I wrote a satirical letter to Andrew Bynum impersonating people on this board.



And I didn't miss the point about the Mavs. I just don't care to respond to an obvious point.

I also didn't respond to the point about what will happen in Bynum's playoff performances because I don't see how its productive to speculate on what stats Bynum may or may not put up in the event that we actually make it all the way to the finals.

Honestly, calling someone a spoiled fan after a player on their team who's rebounding is as uninspiring as Bynum's is just ignorant. Bynum got paid, and now he's being a lazy idiot. You calling me spoilt proves you know nothing about rebounding. Bynum [expletive]es about not having a big enough role on the team, well starting to rebound would help him gain some respect.

Don't give me "awww he's coming back from an injury". If that knee injury is causing him to have 1 or 2 rebound games, then he should go back to the doctor.

You just said it, THIS MONTH. It will all average out to his AVERAGE, you know, more than ONE month.

Want me to go back and find how many games he has had when the other C has outrebounded him? Or how many games he has had with under 6 rebounds?

I'll go back the whole season, figure it out and then compare it with a player who is comparable to Andrew Bynum's skill level (you pick a player of your choice).

You'll be amazed at how poorly Bynum's rebounding compares. Here's a better idea, do it yourself.

Why should I? You're the one [expletive]ing about it, not me.

Go injure your knee the way he did, then come back and try to be the way you were before, within a year's time.

Yes, thats like saying you'd like to lead the league in PPG and also have have Kobe average 10 more points per game than he his. Its not the Bynums, its the Lakers. And our team is leading the league in rebounds and he is on it. And with this many good players there will always be wtf stats.

I don't care if I get warned for this.

Dude, shut the [expletive] up.

If you don't like this thread, then don't post here, it's not that hard. Don't you dare call someone like me or Heir a fake fan. I understand if you are against my opinion, but don't ever call me or Heir fake fan bastards.

If you want to be blinded by our record, then do so. All teams can improve in some places, and it's clear that Bynum has to improve in rebounding. I bet you'd be [expletive]ing if Bynum averages 2 rebounds per game in the NBA Finals. :coffee:

Oh, and see MDI's post about the Mavs.

That explains him averaging 8RPG.

What it doesn't explain is why he has 2 rebound games.

Still not actual points to defend a 7'1 player grabbing 1 rebound in 27 minutes.

"He's still recovering from offseason surgery" is weak and completely irrelevant considering some of the games he's ALREADY had.

Jeez Heir stop being so negative you fake fan.

Lets all be happy that our future at C has the rebounding skills of Earl Boykins. :dance1:

I'm sure even Earl Boykins is shaking his head looking at those stats.

If two rebounds from our starting center is what we need we should've signed him anyway. He probably could've given us 4 and earned a big salary bonus.

It is fully relevant. If he was completely recovered, he'd be consistent on that 8rpg average, none of these 2 rebound games. You people expect too damn much. Spoiled for sure.

I understand that yes, he can play better (play better defense and grab more boads), but give him time. Don't be so quick to jump all over someone just because they don't live up to YOUR expectations.
