How is it 'hate' for me to say I'm scared of the future with Jim in charge? I didn't say get Jim off the team, I hate him, he sucks, I just said I'm worried, that's just my personal feeling on the matter. Also, how is it 'hate' to not believe Bynum is a franchise carrying player, but is a 2nd option? How is that in any way a diss on Bynum? This is the Lakers, it takes a special player to carry this franchise, it can't just be a really good player, it has to be a great player. Bynum is really good, but I don't see greatness, sure he COULD be a franchise player, but IMO that franchise wouldn't be winning titles with him being that.
This is going to be his 8th year in the league already and he is still not showing franchise player consistency, he disappeared in the 2nd half of the Thunder series, became pretty much a non factor in the end. A franchise player is Kobe, who even when he was 21 became a second option and a player that could be relied on in the clutch, even when he was that 2nd option for most of the time during those 3 title runs, you knew he was a franchise player when it was his time to take over. I can't say I KNOW that about Bynum, just can't, that's not hate, it's me being realistic. I think what's more ridiculous than saying Bynum can't be a franchise player is saying he CAN with no real evidence to back it up. I at least have evidence of him folding multiple times in big games, what evidence do you have of him carrying the team when he was desperately needed, in the playoffs especially? Oh, and again, it's very hard for me to see you as objective in this discussion with that username.
