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.
