Kobe Bryant 8 wrote:Duncan in his prime was far better. No doubt about that. Duncan had what I call "sneaky athleticism". You'd never think he was such an athlete watching him. He's just too fundamental to notice anything else about his game.
Bynum has the potential to be equally as great, though. When Bynum is clicking and firing on all cylinders... he's elite. He's just not always there. He still misses some rotations.
I think the biggest issue with Bynum is he sucks at handling double teams. When teams double him hard he gets flustered and just hangs on to the ball for awhile then loses it or forces up a 15 foot fadeaway over two defenders. No way he can be the #1 guy on a championship team until he improves that aspect of his game.
