    Perkins and Bynum Comparison

    I thought I'd take a look at their young careers...Perk has been in the league for 7 years (starter for 5).....Bynum 5 years (starter for 4)

    Career averages regular season

    Perkins:

    MPG  22.2
    PPG    6.4
    RPG    6.0
    BPG    1.4
    FGP   .564

    Bynum

    23.6
    10.3
    6.7
    1.5
    .568

    Career averages playoffs

    Perkins

    MPG  25.7
    PPG    6.9
    RPG    6.8
    BPG    .65
    FGP   .562

    Bynum

    19.6
    9.0
    5.2
    1.13
    .500

    Best Playoff Series

    Perkins

    PPG  11.9
    RPG  11.6
    BPG  2.64

    Bynum

    8.6
    6.9
    1.56

    Bynum is a regular part of the offensive rotation....Perk is primarily a defender.....there is not much difference in their stats....in fact, Perkins' best playoff series is better than Bynum's....so why do all the Laker fans keep saying "wait until we get Bynum and his double/double potential back"? (by the way, he hasn't done it yet) ....while Perkins is considered an afterthought?

    I don't get it.....thoughts?

    Bynum has always been hyped.  He has skills for certain but even when he isn't sitting on the bench in street clothes he isn't a game changer.

    he is hyped cause of the huge contract extension he got. but the guy can't stay healthy.

    With Bynum's great numbers the Lakers may be able to trade him for a top 3 PG in the league in Chris Paul.

    Teams from L.A and N.Y tend to get a lot of hype. Bynum is a good offensive player but not much on D. Perk is the opposite. Actually Perk is a better defender than Bynum is an offensive player. Both are adequate rebounders. Neither will ever be a top 10 NBA rebounder.
        Given the fact that the C's are a defensive oriented team, I'd prefer to have Perk with the C's.

    Greg Oden got a lot of hype too - maybe someday he'll actually play.

    That's because Greg Oden and Andrew Bynum are relatives, knee-wise. They're descendants of the great Sam Bowie.
