Agreed. Shame about those knees. And I'm not being sarcastic. It really is a shame, because his game was becoming deep.
mature as in somewhat passive/agressively agreeing with a reporter and hinting that playing with Kobe might have slowed his growth?
He agreed with the reporter, because the reporter was telling the truth.
If Bynum played on a lottery team instead of a playoff team with a future HOFer, his skill development would have advanced quicker.
There was nothing passive/aggressive about the statement. Simply stating the truth.
right cause you know its not like that HOFer took attention away from him and got him easy looks in the paint right?
The attention Kobe drew mostly came from double-teams which opened up Bynum for lobs for dunks. That's not necessarily conducive to improving a person's postup game. Even Bynum admitted that Kobe opened up opportunities for him during that interview.
If Bynum, played on a lottery team, he most likely wouldn't have played with a ball-dominant guard who can draw a double-team. He would have been featured more in the post and put in a position to develp his postup game further, including dealing with double-teams.
