    Andrew Bynum is no longer as good as people hoped or expected. A lot of people were talking about how good the Lakers would be with Bynum and Gasol a 2-headed monster at center? Not anymore. Bynum's knee injury in the 2008-2009 season is very similar to the one he suffered during the 2007-2008 season. The only differences? In '07-08, he got his foot caught with Lamar Odom's foot and this time, Bryant fell into him. Anyway, the screams were similar. The only difference? Last season, he couldn't put the injured leg on the floor/ground and this season, he was hopping on his heels. Bynum is a serious injury risk now and is no longer the dominant big man many expected him to be.

    If players were wearing massive knee pads, elbow pads, ankle supports, arm bands, calf bands, wristbands like greats like Hakeen Olajuwon and Pat Ewing then I don't think we'd be having these big man problems! big_smile lol

    But seriously, I heard loads of talk about how the lakers could have had a chance against the celtics last year if Bynum was there, and this year now that he's all better we were in trouble.  Never mind, guess we'll have to get banner 18 ready! haha

    He's always gonna fight that stigma now.  Good thing that he's still young in a great team.  He'll have time to prove himself.

      Not forgetting if he can't hit a shot all night then there's always someone to score for him, themselves and the rest of the whole team in the fourth quarter big_smile
