pretty much. had kobe said to dwight what he said to bynum in 2007 it would have been a real ordeal. instead of how bynum just shrugged it off
you can also see it in their handling of injuries. bynum was able to come back optimistic and keep pushing forward, howard has clearly been mentally beaten up by his injury. he has to take a more optimistic approach
