Bynum has 16 boards, 4 blocks and 3 assists. Aside from the quick 0-3 on the first possession, he's gotten 8 shots the rest of the game and made 4. What else do you want him to do for you without the ball?
His stats do NOT reflect his impact on this game. Bynum can take just 3 shots and impact the game much more significantly than this. His D was MIA throughout the game, his 4 blocks do not represent reality. I honestly don't even know how he's got 4 blocks.
He did try hard on the boards, but still, his whole demeanour and attitude has been detrimental to this game.
His lack of agression was very noticeable.
Having said that, this isn't really Bynum's fault. It's a team-wide issue. The lack of heart, effort and determination was egregious.
I don't know if I've ever been as dissapointed in this team as today. Outside of Kobe, they all sicken me. The ones that did actually tried (Hill, Blake, Barnes) made terrible decisions after terrible decisions.
Sessions was scared to shoot.
I am so depressed right now I can't even type. There's so much stuff that I'd like to mention that it's overwhelming. Forget it. I'll get you back later.
It starts already......
It's all Bynum's fault...Oh... you can "qualify" that paragraph all you want but the sentiment is clear. He was stepping out on shots... he rebounded... he blocked shots and contested shots.... these blocked shots don't count but the ones in game one did? He scored just 10 points in that game in a lot more minutes..... what's the difference? He doesn't get the bring the ball up the floor or initiate the offense. He can't create space or prevent the double teams all by himself.
I'd say he's had a much better game than the last one. Outscored out rebounded and out blocked both Mozgov and McGee....
