if bynum weren't a lakers draft pick nobody would have ever heard of him. he might develop, but as of now his sole career achievement is getting shaq to punch him

On that play Shaq had dunked all on top of Bynum sending him to the floor but Bynum jumped up raced down on offense and posted up Shaq, spun off him and dunked with authority , got pumped up skipping down court and initiated contact with Shaq on Defense by giving him a shoulder and Shaq elbowed him in the chops :mrgreen:

I want to see Bynum before saying anything about him. It's not the same to develop a player like Kobe (probably the easiest high schooler to develop that ever was drafted) than Bynum... some of those big men don't really get it at the next level and don't improve as much as was expected.

He looks good right now (for his age), but time will tell...


True, especially since I haven't seen a big man from high school develop that easily.

Amare hasn't developed much. He scored over people in high school... and he keeps doing the same in the NBA (or will do once he's healthy again). His game hasn't developed much, as is based on physical abilities...

btw, Bynum has looked pretty good against he Suns... 18, 9 and 5 assists in just 24 minutes...

He regressed against the warriors, a bad defensive team inside

That's not regressing, that's just a bad game. You can't expect him to play consistently his first season as a starter... he's bound to have some good games and some bad games.

Yeah. For this season, I expect to see him play some very good games and some very bad games... This two first games are proof enough of what may happen with him.

Beg to differ but he went from 12 ppg as a rookie to 25+ ppg that's major improvement

In stats, not on the way he played. He was more important his second season, that's true, and that led to better numbers as he had more chances to play to his strenghts.

Kinda like Ike (another #9 pick)... all he needed was minutes.

Good point. Amare did seem to develop a better jump shot that he uses when his defender backs off him

Yeah, that's also true... but he seldom uses it. It's there, but not enough to be called a threat...

The guy was probably the best big player in the nba two seasons ago! Good enough for that :wink:
