One way to not keep getting hurt is to stop getting stripped...which means you aint getting the ball unless you're rebounding or defending or dunking or putting back rebounds. No more post ups or creating from you. Resulting in a turnover, missed free throws or injuries. Hope he buys into the Tyson Chandler role

lol no....you still run post up plays for him

You still have to post him, he will be more cognizant of it moving forward. But Kobe has been putting him in great positions lately and it's best to have positive energy towards these types of things. If this season is meant to pan out as a disaster then he will get hurt.

I think his strength is actually helping it not get too much worse. I always think of that Livingston injury and think he didn't have enough muscle around his important joints and that scares me for the young and great stars like Curry, Kyrie, KD, and others. Then again Tay Prince stays healthy, but I think he plays a safer, on the ground game.

I will say that one of the few things that Bynum does better than Dwight is keeping the ball high and finishing. Dwight usually has to put the ball on the floor, gather and then finish. This in my opinion is why he gets stripped a lot. I believe he put the ball on the floor before going up and then Shannon tried to strip him, which aggravated his shoulder.

Dwight needs to keep the ball under his chin so people don't keep loading up and slashing at his arm

And it's 100% because the lakers from day 1 said let's hook Bynum up with Kareem and have them work.

Kareem had a young kid, who was going to soak everything up in his youth, unestablished and therefore a blank slate

Orlando does what? Pairs Dwight with Ewing in what, 2009. Dwight is established, and no longer a clean slate. He'd developed NBA habits,

So instead of building a foundation, you have I destroy the foundation and build from there which Dwight probably was unwilling to do because he was so athletic that the necessity wasn't there
