^Not just that. 3 assists, a few hockey assists, and only 1 TO. His passing out of the double-teams is way better than it ever was his last season with the Lakers. He's not Pau Gasol at passing, but he's approaching Shaq level, which is pretty good. Also had another Up and Under on Noah.

Rounding into shape. 14 shots finally. They don't know how to set up post player.

If they can get him 15-17 shots a night he'll get them 18 and 11 or more.

No surprise there. Most perimeter players have never played with a traditional postup player. Bynum was lucky to play with Fish, Kobe, and Luke early in his career.

He's been up and down throughout November. He'll play great against the Spurs and Pelicans and then lay eggs against the Wizards and Celtics.

Fortunately for him, this is one of the few times where he's played well and his team has actually won.

that step at 1:07 :man4: that was great quickness for a big guy :jam2:
he made Noah looking like a kid, absolutely dominating.

I miss classic centers in this league ... Can't help it and imagine the player he could have become without the knees pbs ... the moves/touch are there AND this size can't be teached ... the guy is HUGE

Those announcers :man10: . So exciteable. I guess when you can't remember your last good back-to-the-basket player, any good post move is the most exciting thing ever.

For a large part of his time in LA, I was generally anti-Bynum. But after getting shipped for the Dwightmare, and seeing Andrew get trashed by the national media... I'm really glad he has a 2nd chance to prove himself. It's nostalgic seeing him play.

Damn…..it IS good to see him playing well again. Hope he stays healthy. Too bad he is stuck with such an obnoxious ("All Day Every Day") and not great coach. Kindly put.

Man, I really wish we still had Bynum... his heart and persevenve are 100x greater than Dwight Coward's.

Anyone regret the deal yet? Considering last season was a wash anyway, I sure do, but hindsight is 20/20. Great to see Bynum dominating again, and at least he can keep doing it on my fantasy team (yep, had him in the lineup for that game since I made a somewhat rash trade for him during preseason), if not the Lakers :man9:

My only regret with that deal is that we didn't deal directly with Philly.

Iggy / Vucevic for Bynum would have been 1000x better.

I have no regrets that we traded him since I don't see Bynum as a D'Antoni type player. He'd be wasting his prime years under a coach who has publicly admitted that he doesn't like "bullyball". Had I known that we were going to fire Brown and pick up D'Antoni, I would have supported a trade. Just not a trade for Howard, who I didn't believe would actually stick around at that time and my thoughts were proven correct.

Absolutely agree. Too bad we didn't see Vucevic's break-out coming lol.

I hope his knees hold up. His fundamentals will lead him to have a solid career in spite of losing his athleticism. Maybe Bynum can teach Pau how to be effective after your body starts to fail you.

Most of all I just want Bynum healthy and having a long career. I'd love if he could somehow do it in LA though.

^^Great thought.... not sure it would ever happen. I get the feeling he was leaving regardless of the Howard trade. He was literally in daily rumors about trades and was attempted to be traded just about ever year. From him point of view he wasn't really wanted IMO.

Missed a bunch of "chippies" in the 2nd quarter that he usually makes. Got his form back in the 3rd quarter. Finished with 14 points (6-15 shooting) and 7 boards in 20 minutes. Apparently they're bringing his minutes back down to 20 since the Cavs are playing 3 games in 4 days.

He seemed to soar a bit to grab some offensive boards. Looks like his hops are coming back a little.

BTW, the reason Bynum played so many minutes in the last game (two games ago) was that Mike Brown "forgot" that the training staff had put a cap on his minutes. :man3:
