To be honest, I doubt Bynum would have stayed.

Philly has a much better supporting cast around Drew than Orlando does, which is part of the reason they gambled on taking him without even speaking to his agent.

What astonishes me more is why Houston was left out in the cold. IMO what the Lakers, Denver, and Philly gave Orlando pales in comparison to what Houston could have offered. Even if Houston was scared to get Dwight, why not settle for Drew?


I also thought Houston would basically go all in for Bynum as well.

It's important to note that they really needed to nab either Howard or Bynum. They've got all of this young talent built up, but it's no help to them sitting on the bench and all it does is crowd their roster. I can't believe they would make a gamble like they did and not go all in when it mattered most. Really shocking.

Though Bynum has enormous potential, I am loving that he is gone. The fact that he stopped working with Kareem because he felt like he learned all he could is absurd. Kobe, LeBron, Melo, Dwight, hell even McGee have all gone out of their ways to work with all time legends.

They haven't had a star since iverson, and haven't had a good big man since Mutombo

Iguodala was just disappointment because they thought he was a superstar in the making

This thread has pretty much run its course. If you have any remaining unexpressed Andrew appreciation the big Bynum Discussion thread is still open in NBA Discussion.
