I was one of the few who preferred Bynum over Howard. Neither is what I would call mature or emotionally intelligent but Howard's injury notwithstanding I don't get why this pretty one-dimensional center is crowned with glowing admiration. He can defend well and block shots. Great. He can score whenhe gets the ball underthe basket (most ofth time) but other than that this guy is chump change. He can't shoot free throws. He doesn't play well with the other kids. His passing is mediocre. His outside shot non-existent and his basketball IQ is average at best. While the blind supporters of franchise wrecker heap praise on the incompetent Jim Boy for landing Howard and a way over the hill Nash, methinks the Lakers would be in a lot better shape if we had Phil, Bynum, Odom, and Barnes on the court day in and day out, But no, Jim Boy, grandiose and ineffective, has set in motion the fall of the Laker empire. Jim NERO Buss is the culprit and fans better wake up and start chanting, NERO MUST GO! NERO MUST GO! Or else we're going to be out of the hunt for a ring for many BUSS-TED moons. Jimbo, pretty please, with sugar on it---step down, fool, step down.

a healthy dwight is the best player in the nba. no1 effects the game more. after the 10-11 season ESPNs large pannel of analysts had him ranked the #2 player in the nba

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

The man is nowhere near 100 percent and is still basically giving us what Bynum did. If healthy Dwight Howard is an elite level superstar in the NBA. Only LeBron James and Kobe Bryant his teammate as superior IMO. In terms of building a franchise I'd take him over anyone including LeBron.

Bynum's averaging 20.2 points, 17.3 rebounds, 4.1 blocks, and even 1.2 assists in Philly.

Damn it, we should have kept Bynum instead of Howard.

His three time defensive players of the year awards are useless. Even though, he himself said that he would not be Howard from Orlando until mid-January, he is NOT playing like Howard of Orlando now.

Howard's 18.4 points, 13 rebounds, 2.2 blocks, and 1.5 assists is just garbage.

You are really dumb if you would take Dwight over Kevin Durant (who barely misses games), lebron James (no need to explain), Chris Paul (the guy is amazing.

im not saying hes the most skilled.
im saying that no other player effects the game more.
when he's healthy he dominates the boards(actually goes and GETS them) , he dominates/changes the game with his D(WAY more than any other play) he changes/blocks 5-7 shots per game. so he dominates two aspects of the game, and then only avg 5 ppg less than lebron. dwight>

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.
