What I took from that was how good Bynum was when he played pick and roll consistently, setting good back screens, off screens, and screens for other players.

The Bynum from those years we'd have loved to see with Steve Nash. He seemed to get away from that when he became the 2nd option though, maybe it was the playstyle cause Mike Brown wanted to run 4 in 1 out. But dang, watching old Bynum videos when he used to hedge pick and rolls correctly and set screens consistently for everyone and then watching his last year as a Laker makes you wonder why he got away from all that. Maybe the system but still. Astounds me really.

All and all though, good video.

The movement of players both on and off ball is just fantastic. The spacing is incredible as well. When you consider how stagnant the Lakers' offense has been at times these past two years, it really makes you appreciate the fact that under the Triangle, the ball never stopped moving and it always seemed to find the player with the best shot. Even with Nash running the offense now, the ball movement isn't nearly as good.

Why would I think that? Thus far Dwight Howard is looking like a good decision considering what's happened.

I may have not wanted to happen because of what I felt about Bynum's ceiling. But I'm not gonna stubbornly hold onto that when Bynum has yet to play a game and Dwight has been active and playing well.

I just remember the-man-formerly-known-as-Ron-Artest being so very lost for 104 games - season and post season - and then bailing our asses out in game 7. Ahhh good times.

Game 6 too he played well and everyone said he wouldn't have another good game.

Didn't he also hit the game winner against Phoenix?

haha yuuup! I remember that moment too. From a potential missed Kobe game winner disappointment to wtf-Ron bewilderment. 2010, the dream season.

Ron played well in close out games against Phoenix (Conference Finals), and Boston (Finals). Go figure. Lol. Artest was sporadically good on the offensive end during that postseason but always brought it on defense.
