Bynum said he “wasn’t ready” for 1st half last night, blaming the altitude. “It was crazy, man. It was tough. I missed 3 bunnies.” Sure did.

Andrew Bynum, on his slow start Friday: "I don't know. Maybe just not ready to play." Oh, well. No big deal. It's only the playoffs.

Mike Brown just gave Bynum a pass on comment of not being ready for G3. Brown said all players frustrate him at some point and vice versa.

Lack of conditioning effort in the winter is showing up now. Andrew looked winded in the first 3 minutes of the game.

Someone find a way to get in contact with Drew, tell him that Game 4 is on Sunday, 9:30 PM ET. Make sure he has a nice dinner before the game, gets in a few shots, and ties his shoes really tight. We need him to be ready.

Excuse my ignorance, but I thought playoff games were the games that meant the most.

You are not ignorant on that. But you do need to learn when people are using a little humor to soften their own frustrations.

You are excused. lol joking... Bynum didn't say what you highlighted.

Wow I can't believe this thread was started. Oh its MDI who hates Bynum. nvm

Real talk

You can say anyone who has started a game poorly wasn't ready. A player saying "maybe I wasn't ready" is probably not saying he wasn't prepared for the game. He is just expressing frustration for the way he started. I wouldn't take everything a player is quoted as saying as gospel truth. If that were the case we all would have believed playing the celtics in the finals was the same for kobe as him playing the magic in the finals. Lets not get carried away with everything a player says. I know some can't help it though.

Oh, well if he didn't say that then my mistake. I'm not trying to blow this out of proportion and I'm sure you weren't aiming at me with your statements anyway.

Bynum has a career high of points, boards, and blocks all higher than Pau.

Bynum started a bit slow in Denver... The place known for altitude

No not at all. Just a general statement on the thread.

Lack of conditioning? He trained with a boxing trainer and was /is in the best shape ever!! Not mentally conditioned? I agree and it was contagious! Better cure it fast, me thinks. Less this was a game given to get Metta back as OKC looms and then Spurs then finals whew should get two rings, lol.

Big dude. First half altitude, against guys who are already quicker and more athletic than him, and are used to playing in that altitude.

And we're desperate

Why o why do you keep comparing Pau and Bynum? Pau has been better than Bynum until the laat season and remember how many full seasons has Bynum played.

Pau was more valuable to us.

He was a great big for us in our first title run.

My point is/was that Bynum is a True Center. He can bang consistently down low. He can alter and block shots like a defensive anchor.
And he can be a next level rebounder for us.
