I know everyone is tired of the trade threads, so I decided to ask Laker fans how good will Andrew Bynum be for his career? Will he be a center like Patrick Ewing, Hakeem, David Robinson, or even as great as Kareem? Predictions? All-Star appearances? Numbers? Just give me some honest insight into what type of career Bynum will have?

He can be a great player, or regular player or a bust. Who knows. We have not really seen him play a whole year as a starter. There are good sign that he can be a great player but anything can happen, like the injury.

If he averages 19/13 like the 5 games before the injury AND he is only 20 right now then he can accomplish a lot of things in this league. It's hard to tell though because of injuries and other things that can hamper a good player.

he has insane potential, his footwork, the way he goes for the ball for lobs/rebounds/blocks is very aggressive, plus hes working with kareem so I think he can be the #1 center in the league for years.

He is working with the best in terms of Kareem and he has the right attitude and work ethic to be an all-star. If healthy I see him averaging in 2 years, 21ppg, 11 rpg and 3bpg.

20/10 will be his best year

What i like about him is his soft hands around the basket but he can also go strong when the need arises. Barring any injuries and if he will continue to improve, I think he will be compared to ewing, olajuwon, robinson, etc.

something like that, except a little more rebounds. maybe 20/12.

that's what I expect. But he can be better, he can be a bust.

his full potential: 21 pts, 12 reb, 3 blks, 60 fg for like 6-8 years
probably what well get: 18 pts, 10 reb, 2 blks, for 5 or so years, peaking at like 20/12

I suspect he will be one of the best in terms of stats. He has a great attitude and great tools. Assuming good health, he is playing in an era of few true centers. In the right system which he is in, he has the potential of 30pts, 15 rebounds, 3 blocks when he reaches his mid 20's. At that time Kobe will be the senior spokesman, and will be looking to make Bynum look great.

^^ I'd say that's not too farfetched to believe.

Bynum made great strides last year. If he continues that kind of improvement I can see him being an all-star in 2 years. Numbers wise I think he will be a 20 and 10 type of player as long as he stays healthy and in shape.

he will be the focal point of the offense just about the time he hits his prime after playing with and getting coached by the best in the game. he could easily average 30/15/3 for a few seasons
