I know one is not playing... just saying that there were people who claimed that the difference is not that big and the difference on defense more than makes up for it.
I think those people has been proven wrong.
As were those that were pointing at "attitude problems" as part of Bynum's baggage. Well, Dwight has got them in spades as well.
IF Andrew was still playing, we'd be loosing the trade badly. And even with that - the fact that Dwight might bolt and this season may be over... we may still eventually come up as the biggest losers.
Shaq was right. Dwight is no superman.
Happy to see someone finally bring up the white elephant. I feel the same way, an there's no saying for sure whether Drew would have still been playing. But there's also no guarantee that he would have re-injured the knee like he did.. either way, we're stuck in our current situation, and for KOBE to blame Dwight for that pathetic attempt of "trying to get him involved" last night when he hit him in the back, is just laughable:
"Obviously, this isn't working," Lakers star Kobe Bryant told Yahoo! Sports after the Chicago loss.
"I've tried to go out of my way to get (Howard) the ball. Sometimes I end up looking like an idiot, because I get up in the air, I've got a shot, but I try to find him. But he thinks I'm going to shoot, so his back is turned. I'm trying to think about getting him the ball a lot -- take care of him as much as I possibly can. It takes me out of rhythm a little bit, but I'm fine with that. If that's going to help our team, I'm more than willing to do that.
Jump-passing is a big no-no anyway, Mr. Bryant! BUT, I do see him trying... it's just not 2nd nature for him (not a PG)
