Wasn't that Fisher's foot he stepped on?

I think last night we saw Bynum as we knew him, prior to his emergence last December. (He had a very short one at the beginning of '06 also).

This didn't bother me, it simply served as a reminder that AB is not completely there - yet, nor was he prior to his injury last year.

He was great in certain spots last season, and the Lakers used that effectively. My excitement is due to the fact that I am confident he will regain that January form, and even more. Plus, everything he does in the short -term is a plus.

All that said, he does need to start looking more thoroughbred-like, and less gazelle-like, because we need a physical presence on the court, or else teams will push us around in the post-season (see: Utah, New Orleans, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit).

It was nice to see Ariza push people around a little.

No, he rolled it himself, watch the replay.

Btw any follow up after today from Marc Spears?

Oden will have to develop his offensive abilities significantly before he's considered a "monster" like this guy says.

Yeah good guys like Oden getting hurt stinks. That match up was looking to be fun at the start.

Oden didn't destroy Bynum but he definitely made him think twice about what to do for pretty much the whole game. Defensively Oden has it on Bynum, but offensively Bynum has it on Oden. It should be a fun decade of watching these guys go at it every year - providing they can both stay healthy.

Bynum's offense wasn't there tonight, but he definitely anchored our defense.

Just having the security of knowing Bynum was in the paint let everyone play some seriously solid face-up D. The wide open shots Portland got last year from the panicking guys running low to help in the post were obliterated.

Stats or not, having Andrew back in the fold had an impact.

I will say this in seeing Oden, I could see a nice match up down the line fot these two. I really fell bad for the kid. Worked hard this offseason to make a comeback, like Drew and went down again. I am not a Portland fan but I am a fan of the game and to see this happend to a guy like Greg, makes me remember Bynum when he went down. I really want to see these kats duke it out a little more this season. Hope he is day to day.

With that said.. Bring on the Clippers. Don't nobody in this league besides Portland has as much depth as the Lakers do... And when that units starts to run and gun....... It'll take a nation of BALLERs to hold Dem Laks Back....

the love for oden is ridiculous and un called for

1. oden still has not played more than 10 minutes in an NBA game

2. odens post play is 100% garbage watching him chuck shots at the basket made dwight howard look like tim duncan

3. his free throws were reminiscent of shaq i guess a comparison is warranted there

4. bynum has more post moves, more length, more strength, more IQ, more touch around the basket, more competitive fire, more fundementals and bynum is only 1 year older than oden 1 year !!!!!!

the pundits can say what they want and continue to ignore bynum but at only 1 year older than oden bynum is 5 years ahead of him in offensive fundementals and 2 years ahead of dwight howard

the more they ignore him the more i realize how dumb the pundits are

bynum is only 3 months older than oden and his offense wasnt there against blazers even after oden got hurt. That being said oden is a physical specimen who can do good things. 5 reb in 12 minutes aint half bad
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers
