Bynum got big.

I think he'll be better than Howard, and it won't even be close.

Wow, he bulked up tremendously. He's freaking huge! I don't know what his momma has been feeding him since he started rehabbing.

As far as being better than Howard... I don't think so. But he will be a beast on the block. I think, in the end, he'll have a more polished offensive game than Howard will.

Agreed with the Howard thing..............the only thing Bynum will have on Howard is a better arsenal of moves (thanks to Kareem behind the scences)

But he will never be as dominant and nimble as Howard is..............Howard is huge but lean and quick, a quicker and higher jumper than Bynum and in my mind stronger.

We shall see.

bynum and howard will both be great in to different aspects of the game. they both will score, but bynum will eventually be more of a scoring center. they both will defend, but howard will give you close to 3 blocks a game and bynum maybe 1-2. they will both be rebounding beasts, but with howard agility and stooper length i think he may average a couple more than bynum.

yeah, but at least oden's was expected. When he got injured last year, he told us he was gonna be doing that (i.e. get bigger). I think Bynum getting big was more of a shocker. Either way, the NBA better hope these kids stay healthy, cuz chances are they can be fun to watch for a long time

Patrick's an Assistant Coach with the Magic yep, and does all the things an assistant coach does............but Kareem is a special assistant, who was employed soley to work with Bynum.

Plus, Patrick didnt have anywhere near the moves Kareem had. :wink:

Ewing may not have made a great post player out of anyone yet but the guy was one of the best Centers and I do think he is comparable to Kareem. Not as good but not far off

Not doubting Ewing in any way...............its just that he was a power player, who then turned into a pure mid-range jump shooter.

Where as Kareem was all finess and had a wide array of moves to pull.

Hence, I believe that Kareem would have more to teach Bynum in terms of moves and variety of scoring, whereas Ewing can mold Howard into the power beast that he is already.

I understand what you're saying, and Kareem did have a great offensive game but Ewing was more than just a power player. He had a great turn around jumper on the baseline, hooks and unorthodox drives to the basket that were effective. He should be teaching Dwight Howard to get a jump shot and some skills inside, besides just power like Dwight does
