    In Response to Re: Bynumite- 30 rebounds v Spurs! : There are issues, no one will debate that. And whether the Lakers' brass can reign him in remains to be seen.  But I can still appreciate a 30 rebound effort.

    I have a theory - and, of course, Lakers fans would disagree.  But, it's mine!

    I think young Mr. Bynum does NOT want the lakers to pick up his option.  I don't think he likes Mike Brown, either, but that is secondary.  He is healty for the first time, putting up All-Star numbers,  and why would he want to be in the same FA class as DH?  And here is a kicker.  Bynum is from NJ, right?  Well, what a coincidence that the Nets are moving into a new building, AND can offer him a max deal NOW!!!  His "antics" this year all started after DH opted IN, right?  Well, another coincidence?  I think not.  Whether he likes LA or not, I think Mr. Bynum wants his Benjamins NOW, and if he can go home and get away from Brown at the same time - good!!

    Elfie's Back! I missed you. In the midle of the drought where we were dominated by the suns and the Celtics are playing historic levels of defense I didn't think you would ever come back to support your fellow trolls.

    I don't understand...it's too late for bynum to move this year.  How would he be avoiding competing with DH during this summers FA?  I'm sure it makes sense but I need someone to 'splain it to me.

    Did howard sign for next year?  I though he just agreed to play nice this year.

    Trolldrizzle - you are not fooling anyone. Bynum had a great game.  He is still a low class punk, a cry baby and oft-injured.  When it matters most, he will disappear. The headline should be:  Lakers win because that fraud, Kobe, isn't dragging them down with his horrible, inefficient, ball hogging play.  Check out ESPN magazine article... it proves Kobe is one of the WORST closers in the game.

    Re: Bynumite- 30 rebounds v Spurs!

    Bynum had a great game.....30 rebounds for a 7 ft center is still impressive......but is it more impressive than 6-1 Rondo getting 17 rebounds to go along with his triple double earlier this year....?  ....by the way, how many does Rondo have this year? (I know he leads the league)....talk about a phenomenal athlete.....

    also, speaking of athletes...Charles Barkley just remarked that the kids today are multi millionaires because the are great athletes....not because they are great basketball players.....the rules are completely different today....if you are on the floor and can fly to the rim...go ahead and take three or four steps...this is the new NBA....I just wish Stern would come out and admit that the rules have all been changed, then we could just deal with it.....

    NBA Rulebook for the 21st Century: (AKA "The Jordan Rules")

    1-Superstars can expect all the calls to go their way
    2-Home teams will get the calls the majority of the time
    3-Referees will attempt to keep playoff series' going to 6-7 games
    4-Disregard all of the rules that the league enforced for the first 40+ years

    What a joke of a league.....I am glad I grew up watching the game as it was meant to be played...I still root (I can't help myself)....but I am no longer as passionate

    Yes, Bynum is super fantastic and undoubtedly a main component in the Lakers sweeping my beloved Celtics this year. Had he been healthy in 2008, my beloved Celtics would still be in the mist of a long championship drought. I sure hope that if my Celtics can get to the championship that the Lakers are not there or we are in deep you know what.

    Go Celtics!!

    I hope they win every game Bryant doesn't play - too bad they already lost one.  It would be a statement on multiple levels!

    The  team has his option.  All they have to do is exercise the option, and he will be on the lakers next year, at their price.  If they don't exercise it, he is a FA.  DH, opted in, so he WILL be in ORL next year..............but will be a FA at the  end of NEXT year.  So, Bynum wants to be free this year, instead of  at the same time as DH!!

    I wonder how many of the 30 rebounds were a result of crooked officiating?

    drew's gonna park his ride where he pleases and shoot 3s if he feels like it. he's a petulant 12 year old. 30 rebounds - while impressive - will likely serve to increase his misguided sense of entitlement. this guy's got some issues that are detrimental to the lakers. their fans needn't act as if he doesn't.

    Bynum is the best offensive center in the league and a great rebounder when he wants to be. He does need to show more maturity on and off the court. His potential is incredible.

    In Response to Re: Bynumite- 30 rebounds v Spurs! : If anything, I think Bynum's behavior may be attributable to Fisher's absence from the team. He had quite a calming influence over several players, among them Bynum.
    Posted by FlobusMcNugget


    Yuck

    When you are 25 years old, in your 7th season in the league, you do not need 'calming influence' teammates to have class, not be a thug, keep your mouth shut, etc.

    This is not a 20 year old Cousins playing for a dismal team... the guy has played in 2 NBA finals, then humiliated Phil, Magic and the LA brand during the 0-4 sweep and when it was put up or shut up time this season proved he likely has serious mental problems along with being an obvious injury risk

    THEY WILL PICK-UP HIS OPTION

    That is not even a question (c'mon now), but to build around or win another title around such a disturbed individual whose knees can go at any second, as Kobe/Gasol get old quick... its not ideal

    In Response to Re: Bynumite- 30 rebounds v Spurs! : I want to be very clear about this - I think the lakers WILL pick up his option.  They would be crazy not to.  What I'm saying is HE (Bynum) may not want them to, if he thinks he can make more money NOW than in the future.  Although a little from left field, it is a plausible explanation for his antics as of late.  Do we know he doesn't want to be traded?  Has there been any comment from him about his contract?  I haven't read any, and until I do, this is as viable an option as there is.  And again, it has nothing to do with how the lakers feel, as they have all the power here.  Compare it to Sessions.  HE has all the power there, and he is playing hard to get paid.  He should double his salary.  Back to Bynum.  Is he happy in LA?  Would he want to play in NJ and be THE man NOW?  I don't know, and if you have any info on it, please share.  If this is true, he is getting bad advice, but maybe he WANTS out.................just an idea!!

    Even with picking up Bynum's option, the Lakers can offer him more money then any other team. This is not why his behavior has been erratic. I have no explanation for how he has behaved.

    It's crazy that MWP has dropped down to #3 on the "I have no idea what that dude is going to do" list behind Barnes and Bynum.

    Yeah, you're probably right.
    LA will probably cut Bynum loose and then he can sign with the Celtics.

The Lakers front office is the best in the biz by far, and that is really hard for me to say considering I a bleed green and love the Celtics.
    Posted by Snoopsnizzle



    Oh if only that were true. When have my beloved lakers last drafted a good player? Eons go. Nothing to compare to the defense scourge That is Avery Bradley. Oh I hope Kobe doesn't play him. I hate to see his shooting percentage drop below the woeful 42% it currently is. 

    And most saddening of all as good as Bynum has played, his PER when compared to KG (at center) is lower than Kg's proving the Celtics have a better center now than my beloved Lakers. What a brillaint move by doc. 
      
    Add that to the fact they are a title contender this year with tons of cap room next year and two number one draft picks and I have to face the fact My lakers will never catch the Celtics. 

    No one in the buinsess is better than Danny Ainge. You don't know how much that hurts to say.

    So you're suggesting Bynum thinks the Lakers would allow him to simply walk away as a FA solely because of his antics? Don't see it. If the Lakers ever decided to part ways with Drew (which I cannot see happening at this point), I can't imagine they would do anything but trade him. Kupchak is too saavy to let a premiere talent like Bynum go for nothing.
