Do you Lakersnation think Bynum can be part of the 2012 Olympic team if he shows what he showed us last year with he 25 games he played?

yes. If he can stay healthy and keep growing every year. He will be a part of that team in 4 years.

No doubt about it. He'll prob be the best big man aside of Dwight Howard in 4 years if healthy.

Yes.

He's a 7'1 true center who can average a double-double and 2 blocks and anchor your defense.

Considering that FIBA is changing the court from a trapezoid to a rectangular lane, USA Basketball is going to do it's best to find a true center rather than just an athletic power forward.

Definitely. Who wouldn't want a 7'1 Star(If he pans out of course) on their team.

for some reason the thought of that scares me as a Laker fan
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

Depends on how he does this season and next. The Olympic team, or actually the men's national team asks for a 3-year commitment. If he can establish himself as a top American center in those 2 years, then yea he should make it as Dwight's backup.

For me, I'll just see how he does for the rest of this season and the next few before I can really judge.
