I will monitor box scores to see how his shooting percentages decrease pretty badly, so I can finally have very conclusive proof that he can't deal with the defensive attention that comes with being a primary option.

Yeah no longer a Laker but people need to stop acting like he was a scrub.

We'll be getting a 'dialed in' Bynum every time we play Philly so it will be fun to watch.

I'll be watching him whenever I get the chance to depending on who else is playing.

Watching the Lakers first though ;)

There does seem to be alot of Anti Drew now. The last I checked , he didn't ask to be traded. What if he averages 24 and 12?? What if Philly makes it to the second round with #33?? If Drew stays healthy it will be interesting to see if LeBron makes Philly his next DECISION

I was pretty much thinking the same thing. It will be interesting to watch Lakers vs Philly games because you know Drew will be 100% focused. Everyone acting like he is a scrub is delusional, This team could actually give us quite a headache. I do not think they could beat the Lakers but I think they could prove a tough challenge.

That won't happen. You're talking about someone who pretty much every year of his career shot between 55-60 percent from the field. That doesn't happen by accident. Sure it may take a slight dip, but those expecting him to take a significant dip as far as FG% is concerned will be dissapointed..

When you're the primary scoring option, you see more doubles. Andrew has never had to deal with that on a consistent basis and he didn't make enough progress in that area here in LA.

Pau Gasol is GONE

Actually he did last season. It was the first time it had happened so of course he struggled with it at first, but at the season went on he did get better. It also didn't help that no one could really space the floor consistently which led to teams clogging the paint not only on Drew, but also Kobe and Pau.

Cmon guys, double team or not, i still see him having decent 20-10 games. It's not like double teams will drastically degrade his offense.

doubles will affect him because he's never seen them for a full season as the number one option. Not to mention, he's not that great of a passer out of doubles.

Bynum playing 35 + mins, attracting all of the defensive pressure and trying to be the defensive anchor.......He might shoot 50%.

Not much better. His lack of composure under pressure was on full display in the postseason once DEN and OKC forced him out of his sweet spots. No one was expecting him to hit a man with a perfect pass out of the double team for an easy look, just to make the right decision and at least initiate the swing. He couldn't even do that. When faced with a hard double 6-7 feet away from the basket, we were almost guaranteed a botched possession. Not even with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol reducing the defensive pressure by dragging people away from him could he find the open man. I wouldn't be surprised to see him average close to 4 TOPG next season. He'll get his numbers, but his efficiency will be much lower than it was here in LA. The 49-52% range seems about right.

i'll watch bynum....highlights

only games of his i'll see in their entirety will be the laker ones...

if he's healthy, he'll probably do well, or at least put int he effort because he thinks he has something to prove now...and he got what he wanted, and i'm sure the FO over there will give him whatever he wants because they want him to resign. so he'll be happy in that sense, and he'll also want to show up the lakers. but if he does do well, don't confuse that with what he would have done had he stayed here...much like shaq dropping all that weight when he went to miami, and kissing flash's ass
