Of course his fouls would equal to 9, though from reading the various reports, the consensus is that Bynum got shafted on a couple of those fouls.
People who expect Bynum to average 20 and 10 are unrealistic. Amare at 19 averaged 13 and 8, Howard 18 and 7.5, Bynum still has another year to be even as old as those guys, when they put up those numbers. Overall, reading the various reports made me a lot more optimistic again, especially about that part about where Bynum got back on one play so fast, independently observed.
No Howard turned 18 around draft time. He's only 6-9 months older than Bynum
