post #20521 of 21964
@beh I'm not arguing against any of those points. well except one. I don't think there was any way phil would have made him an option ahead of pau. he had the talent to be a better all around player than pau but if you make him the #2 option that takes away his energy on defense and makes pau less useful (exactly what happened when mike brown took over). better for the team to utilize pau to the fullest on offense and let bynum focus on defense and rebounds and get the leftovers on offense (2 rings with this strategy). basically even tho he was a better #2 option than pau, he was a wayyy better #3 than pau

also he didn't really get the lazy tag until after the injuries. having had injuries to both knees myself, until you're fully healthy you really have to pick and choose your spots. no use going after a loose ball or fighting for a rebound you know you aren't gonna get just to show ppl that you're hustling. it wears your knees down and makes it harder to get the ballwhen your team really needs it

You're right on both points. Especially with his knees. Those injuries have aged him faster than he'd like to I'm sure. I guess we'll have to see when he plays this season. It's crazy that he's still only 25.

Honestly sounds like you've never seen him play if that one move is the only thing you remember about Bynum.

Watch this, compare him to every center/PF in the league now and realize how silly your statement was.

I'm not going to watch a 20 minute highlight reel of Bynum. It's just that, a highlight reel. When I watch him, I watch games and game situations. That video wouldn't do anything in terms of assessing his total game. If you're a fan, good for you for defending your boy, but that video doesn't show missed rotations, mixed box outs and slow footwork. It's not the total picture. I will give you that much, he has nice touch around the rim, but he isn't as dominant as people are waiting for him to be, he'll never be that. At this point, he'll be serviceable. You said to compare him, he isn't sniffing Timmy, not even now. That's as close to him there is in terms of style and game, the rest of the PF/C in the league don't play on the block.

Because I disagree and say he's not as dominant as you perceive him to be as a fan? Come on man. A highlight reel doesn't show flaws. He has a work ethic issue, flashes of good don't equal consistency. If you are a fan of him fine. Hell, his career numbers don't scare anybody. He had one decent season, ok, I'll grant you that. My statements have been about his overall game. Stop making immature assumptions because I don't see with YOUR eye.

That's like saying "Allen Iverson had a decent career but he didn't do anything great since that crossover on Jordan"
post #20541 of 21964
When Bynum was really playing his best he was an eager post player you could dump the ball into, let him work and he would score with high frequency... He also rebounded well on the offensive and defensive end... Manned the paint on defense and blocked a decent amount of shots... Basically... #AndrewHaveItAll

If Bynum plays like he did, Cavs could be the sixth seed.
post #20543 of 21964

We'll just have to see how he pans out this season. I'll sit here with my tub of popcorn and see. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong *shrugs*.

bynum's knees will explode if the cavs play him more than 20 games this year, cavs fans will feel how 76er fans felt last year when they actually thought bynum would contribute to the team.
