Maybe the uninterested part is just his normal facial expression, but there is no excuse for a 7 footer who is the biggest dude on the court to get blocked so many times. What I noticed about Bynum is that he is a good scorer from between 3-5 feet from the basket, but anywhere further than that OR closer than that, and he just cant finish. His hook looked good, but he doesnt run down the court- thanks for the tutelage Kareem.
Anyways, my point is that we would be best trading Bynum while he still has value. I just dont see the fire that is needed for a 17 year old with great size and modest skills to dominate in the league.

He's better than he was last year. Will he be like KG, Shaq, Hakeem, etc? No, most likely not. But it's too early to say that "he won't be anything."

"Good young player," Duncan said. "He's got a big body and it looks like he's got great coordination. He moves his feet really well and made a couple of good moves in there. He's got a lot of promise."
Frankenstein wrote:It's only Bynum's second year so it's unfair to judge him right now even in the summer leagues.. but then again, The Wizard's Andre Blathe was picked the same year as Bynum. He, like Bynum, came out of high school and i think was picked late in the first or early second round. When the Lakers played the Wizards last Friday, i saw more promise in Blathe..
Bynum is kinda mechanical in his moves right now. The only thing that sets him apart and made a big part in the Lakers picking him was that he is a footer.
I think it's too early to judge him right now and looks to improve slower than other high school players drafted recently.. say Blathe or those 7ft Boston rookies. He may need to strengthen his core muscles just as Odom did late last season. He could use some explosiveness and need to play more physical. We do not need another finesse player up front...we are soft as it is right now with Cook, Mihm and Odom up there.
