O.K. 7 games. The 1st 7 games of his career he was able to be "the man" Those are pretty good numbers for someones 1st 7 games as the main guy. Dwights had 7 or 8 years to be that guy. Bynum had only seven games.Imagine what he could do with that role for a full season. Why the hell was Collins so fired up to get him as the leader? Do you know more about basketball than him? They got your guy's favorite player, a top 5 player according to most for him in Dwight. If Drew is so bad, why would he be the trade bait in the awesome player you guys all covet in Dwight Howard? How did the Lakers swing a deal for Dwight Howard for the pathetic lazy no good player in Bynum if he isn't very good?

Bynum was an all-star player, nothing more.  Nobody is truly saying he was as bad as Joel Anthony.

 

He gave us seven games of very low percentage shooting for a big man, because he is nothing more than an all-star second scoring option.


Why did Doug Collins try to motivate him and push him as the big event in Philly?  Because he's an all-star big man, and Philly hasn't had a valuable one since Dikembe Mutombo.

 

Seven games.  Do you not understand that sustaining play for seven games...is far easier than for 82 games, starting a season as the primary option, where teams plan for you?  Where you play those teams 2-4 times a year?  Do you actually think Bynum was going to give us 60% FG and 23/14 averages for an entire season without Kobe Bryant?  Do you think he would have led Philly to a top four seed as a primary option?

 

You're guessing, that's all.  You have no idea what you're talking about.  It's actually quite fun to debate it, because I absolutely LOVE putting Andrew Bynum on blast (simply because he's a jackass on and off the court), but it's getting a bit tiring.  You aren't bringing anything to the table.

 

Do better, or don't bother.

Because Bynum is still better than Hawes or Vucevic and can be a franchise player for a playoff team, but he's definitely not better than Dwight Howard. Also more information about his health condition was revealed to us this year. 

Bynum as the center for the Lakers helped us get to the 2nd round of the playoffs with the Thunder. Did Howard do better for us than that this year? Was he the huge upgrade and awesome player that you expected and hoped he would be? Did he fulfill all your expectations after letting the Lazy no good Bynum go?

Dwight went into the playoffs as the only scoring option.  Bynum had Bryant carrying the load for him.

 

You're on your way out.

Bynum had Kobe that year. If Kobe was healthy this year we would have made it to the 2nd round. Howard was misused by Dantoni this year, not fully 100% for most of the year and yet he still put up numbers around his average. He even led the league in rebounding.


I know lazy Bynum fulfilled my expectations of him. He didnt play all year. Why? Because of his knees and how he didnt do all he could to get healthy soon enough to help his team.

I saw the Lakers go further and have a much better season with Bynum as the center last season than I did with Dwight Howard this year. You look at those 7 games and you will see if you have an objective eye that Bynum led us to a 5 and 2 record while posting numbers that only a superstar could post. Dwight has had 7 years to play as the leader and yet he can't even come close to Bynum's  offensive play that he portrayed in the one full season that Bynum had. You think I'm alone? NBA analysts and commentators will tell you that Dwights offensive game is crap.

 

That's why the majority are saying that the Lakers should not sign Dwight to a max contract. Listen to Reggie Millers take on him after game 4 of the Spurs game. He was emphatic that Dwight is not worth it. ESPN shows. Around the Horn, 3 of the 4 said that the Lakers would be better off not signing Dwight to the max because he wasn't cut out for it. Why would experts around the sports nation say the Lakers should not sign Dwight to the max if he was such adominant superstar? It's because they see what alot of you refuse to see. He is not very good.

What about the season then? Howard had Kobe all year long and we made the playoffs by the skin of our teeth. The most dominant big man in the league according to most, accompanied by the best player in the NBA and yet it took game 82 to get in. That doesn't bold well for the dominant Dwight Howard.

I saw the Lakers go further and have a much better season with Bynum as the center last season than I did with Dwight Howard this year.

And the Sixers were in the playoffs, and defeated the Bulls, last season...much better than they were this year, with Bynum on their roster.

 

LA went 5-2 without Kobe two years ago?  Ah, damn...keep that in mind for a second...

 

What about the season then?

Yeah, what about it?  The Lakers went 2-0 without Kobe and Nash, led by Dwight.  Oh, wow!

 

And what does that say about Kobe?

 

We can go down that road, though, lol...the Lakers won an NBA championship in 2009 without Andrew Bynum, and they won a second with him hobbled and nearly useless.

 

You're still going?

Can any of you guys with time to think and seriously rationalize the situation, feel that Dwight with all his weaknesses can lead the Lakers to even one championship? I'm being serious here. Were you all in love with what Howard did for the Laker this season? Was anybody impressed and feel he deserves max dollars even though the Lakers aren't good enough in his mind to say emphatically that he will sign with us whenever the papers re drawn? Doesn't his relentless pursuit of happiness while dismissing the Lakers desire to sign him right now give any of you pause?

 

He thinks he is so great that the best team in NBA history has to wait for him to decide what he wants to do rather than the other way around? This guy thinks he is above the Lakers. He has no respect for the history of the purple and gold. He's a  diva without the accolades. He should be on his knees begging for the Lakers to sign him after his performance this year. Instead the Lakers are waiting on him. He is pissing on the Laker Nation and some of you guys are getting drenched in it.

Oh god...

 

Also I love how even you stopped defending Bynum.

Like Bynum ever had any respect for the Lakers.

How about the way Bynum disrespected Kareem? Did you like that?

Hahahaha

You've got be kidding me. So you completely brush Bynum's childish acts aside and all Kareem, one of the greatest players in NBA history and one of the greatest Lakers ever, gets is a 'whatever'?

That's all there is to it. Kareem tutored and taught him for 6 or 7 years. Does he have to be tutored by him for the rest of his career? There comes a day when the pupil has to move on from the teacher. You wanted him to wait til he was 30 or something? Get into reality. I hear this all the time and that is the worst diss on Bynum yet.

 

Bynum was Kareem's project and is why he was offered the job with the Lakers. Kareem didn't want it to end so he get's on Drew. How many players tutor with a former player for their entire career? The day comes when it's time to move on.

Clarification here...

1) Don't register duplicate accounts.

2) If you're going to argue something, don't ignore the debate...because eventually, it's considered trolling.

Not tough to figure out.
