he's just passive IMO. He's taking jumpshots, which allows him not to go down there and use his body. He says he wants more touches down low, but I don't buy that. He just looks so weak and soft when he's posting up.. Obviously that passiveness applies to his D too.
........ So Bynum is?.....
To an extent, yes. Much more than Pau, at least.
Bynum, as many have noted -including Kobe-, has a special drive, a desire to prove that he's one of the best players, that he's the best big man in the game, that he's capable of scoring in bunches.. So, in some ways, you could say he's about getting his.
I just wish that he took a different approach at "getting his" or proving himself. You can do it by doing other things besides scoring. Look at Howard, everyone that knows about basketball knows he isn't nearly as talented on offense as Drew, but he's become a perennial all-star and top 10 player because of his great effort on the defensive end and on the glass.
My point is that Drew could prove his dominance in ways other than just scoring, like going after rebounds with effort and playing dominant inside D. He's more than capable of it, as we've seen before in different stretches of games (like last year after the all-star break).
