Doc Brown wrote:Bynum had a great season this year. Definitely something that lays a solid foundation of him to work on his weaknesses this offseason. If he can comeback next season with a solid handle on countering the double teams (passing, spin jumper to the baseline) and developing that 12-15 footer he was talking about he will put up some big numbers next season.
What hurt Bynum this season and his image IMO, was the fact Brown would run him in 12 minute stretches and some games he wouldn't get a break the whole second half. You can't do that with a big man or anyone for that matter. If Bynum is run in 7-8 minute stretches in quarters 1-3, likewise with Kobe, he will be fresh for the 4th and overall he will have more energy throughout the game. That will only lead to better play on both ends and this "lazy" outlook on Bynum will go away.
Looking at the numbers at both the PF and C spots, Hill did work with his time he got on the Lakers. Even taking into account his overall year and his output, he put up numbers that would make him a solid backup for this team. The only question is, was it because of a contract year or because he found his role/niche on a team? I'm hoping he's found his role/niche because we need and will need every bit of his hustle/energy going forward.
If the FO can get a couple scorers off the bench, having Hill/McFly/Ebanks there to do the dirty work (defense/hustle/energy/rebounding), it will make our team that much stronger and balanced.
And as always nice work again TRodgers.
