I just feel Drew should be getting more touches, I see him get in posistion in the post but then our guards just swing the ball around the peremiter. Anyone else notice this?, or is it just in my imagination?

He's been too passive when he does get the ball. I think his offensive game will get better as we go along.

When he gets back to being aggressive when he has the ball, then we'll see more touches for him ;)

Lots of factors

- The last couple of games Bynum has been struggling because he's going up against good defensive teams
- He's still not 100% back from his injury and is still tentative
- He does get the ball but he doesn't do much with it
- Sometimes yes the team does ignore him.

having his presence on defense is enough for me. with pau down there, i don't think we can really expect much more offense from him.

This is nothing new. Bynum has yet to develop strong enough post-skills to become a go-to guy.

He's great finishing around the rim, especially lobs.

But remember, he was injured last January, and the team wen to the Finals w/out him.

He's got to show that he can be a consistent threat on the block before he gets more consistent touches, especially in crucial situations.

I Pretty much agree, But I would just like to see the ball go into the post more, wether its Pau, Drew, or Lo. Our team is setteling for way too much peremiter shots, when we usually always have an advantage in the interior.

IMO he's getting a good amount of touches, but he tries to do too much with them. He can't settle for a clever pass, he tries too much. His offensive game will improve alot, but he just needs to use his smarts right now.

Andrew Bynum isn't being agressive. He plays great defense for a while and gets his blocks, then he disappears. Bynum doesn't need to score 20 a night, but he should always have a double double. He needs to grab some boards! I'm still amazed he let Eric Dampier of all people snatch 12 offensive boards in one game. Bynum needs to push, shove, box out, do something. You don't surrender a double double to Kwame.

We showed him we have $58 million dollars of faith in him, it's time for him to step up.

Drew knows what is up:

“I really haven’t been attacking, so I’m going to start attacking on the block,” Bynum said. “Over all the games, I really haven’t scored much on the block play.”

“I’m just not being aggressive,” Bynum said. “I think I need to go out there and be aggressive and assert myself on the block. I don’t think I’ve even scored with a post move yet this season.”

Most of Bynum’s offense has come on screen-and-roll plays and lob passes.

He wants to become more of a force inside.

“So, I’m going to try to attack the basket a little bit more,” Bynum said.
