What a surprise! : Bynum blasts Lakers/Kobe

Bynum: Dwight's great, but he's going to have to get accustomed to playing w Kobe and not touching ball every single play.


Bynum on the Dwight Howard trade: "Personally, I think they traded No. 1 for No. 2."

If Bynum touched the ball on every play we would have had a bottom 5 offense in the league instead of top 10

I think he should shut his mouth though, he has no right to open his mouth considering he did not contribute to any of the 2 Laker championships.

he's a clown.

What? How is this blasting the Lakers or Kobe? Dwight will have to get used to not touching the ball as much as he did in ORL. I'd expect Bynum to believe he is better, that is the right mindset to have even if its not true.

^^^^^ please tell me your joking???? a Top-5 player when healthy is not overrated.... or perhaps you think it would be entertaining to see Bynum jacking up 3's in MDA's offense?

I think you are being sarcastic at least I hope so -_-

At least Dwight isn't chronically injured, Bynum sure has gotten used to handicap parking.

Bynum was just stating the truth?

Without much more context it's hard to see his intent...but he's right.


Dwight went from a situation where he was getting the ball often to one where someone else is their best option every time down the floor. That IS something Dwight has to get used to. Hell, Steve Nash has to get used to it too. I've been saying this the entire season. They need time to adjust. They were all #1 options on their previous teams and now they're having to mesh.

Without the question or previous and post comments, I won't judge Bynum for talking ish.


Oh and Bynum saying he believes he's the #1 Center? If he didn't y'all would be blasting him for that. You think Kobe would let up and say Bron or KD was better than him right now? :man10:

THIS. There's nothing really wrong with what he said.

And if Drew were still on our team and said that Dwight is better than him, this board would be crucifying him for not having confidence in himself.

I think that hardly qualifies as "blasting." Dwight does need to get used to less touches playing on this team, not only with Kobe but Pau as well. Plus it's Mike Antoni's system.

Bynum could be the best center in the league, IF he could stay healthy, and IF he played his hardest consistently and IF he worked as hard on his game as a guy like Kobe. Unfortunately, that has not been the case. I definitely think he has the highest ceiling of the centers in the league.

I've heard worse "blasts" from Matt Barnes and Shaq this season.

I have made arguments for Drew being a better center than Howard. I wouldn't have an issue with him saying he was the best.............however.............. Drew isn't on the court this means he isn't even top 50 Centers in the game right now.

He's probably right on #1, not on #2. He can't even play. But I still wish him speedy recovery.

That COULD have been a blast on Kobe... I don't really think it intended to be malicious though. And that's not a blast on the Lakers at all, more of a blast on Howard or praise for his own game. Nothing to see here

Healthy Bynum is better than Dwight, but I'm not even holding my breath that Bynum suits up this season.

Edit: I think karacha knew but was making a joke.

Bynum and healthy should not even belong in the same sentence. Thank god we have Dwight now, because without Bynum and Pau, not to mention Nash... we'd be in an even bigger hole. We'd have Sacre and Hill starting. With no backups. Ugh. At least Dwight gives you solid D, blocked shots, 18/12 a game, and... he doesn't miss games in general.

ESPN trying to make a big deal about this and create a story, headlines from front page and article title

"Bynum: Kobe stunted my development in L.A."

"Andrew Bynum: Kobe stunted my play"

This is the quote they took that from

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/8753097/andrew-bynum-philadelphia-76ers-says-kobe-bryant-stunted-development-los-angeles-lakers

But by the end of his time in L.A., Bynum felt that Bryant's ball-dominant ways hurt his development as one of the league's best centers.

"I thought it really helped me a lot obviously at first, because he draws so much attention it's hard for guys to double team and key on you, so it helped me tremendously," Bynum told a group of L.A. reporters before the Lakers played the Sixers on Sunday. "Later, I felt I was able to get the ball more and do more things with the ball, so I could definitely see how it could stunt growth."


Where in that quote did Bynum say what the headline reads? Where did he say that Kobe stunted his growth and development? Please ESPN, nice try. Maybe there was a hint of it, maybe it wasn't a complimentary statement, but I saw no hate in those words and I'm pretty sure Bynum knows all the easy buckets Kobe got him during his time here, they even spoke to eachother when the game ended tonight.

Also from that interview...

"I thought it really helped me a lot obviously at first, because he draws so much attention it's hard for guys to double team and key on you, so it helped me tremendously," Bynum told a group of L.A. reporters before the Lakers played the Sixers on Sunday. "Later, I felt I was able to get the ball more and do more things with the ball, so I could definitely see how it could stunt growth."

Once again, sensationalist media taking quotes out of context to get more internet clicks. Nothing he said is inaccurate. I'm guessing it's ok for us sitting behind a computer to blast Kob for shooting too much, but when someone that actually played with him does it it's considered "blasting".. lol smh
