I thought it was funny how Suns fans thought that they were going to get to the finals and even win the finals the last couple of years. I guess that didn't happen.

Why don't you just shut the **** up and wait until next season to make your judgements. Now I know they will be just as useless as they are right now but at least everyone won't have to read these "BYNUM ARE OVERARRTED" threads for a few months...

I don't think he is overrated. I think he is young player with great upside. To be honest I don't think the traingle offense fits his game. For him to be a consistent 20/10 guy he needs multiple touches and plays ran for him. I don't see this happening in the current system and as long as Kobe is a Laker.

09-15-2008, 03:31 PM
I dont think he's that bad. Pretty good, nothing spectacular but he seemed to play very solid last year. which is alot better than how he's played in previous years, so i think he'll get alot better. Plus with Gasol.... Shite. I'd still take shaq and amare though, and yes, without kobe, that team would be very mediocre.

09-15-2008, 05:10 PM
hes got the potential to be a very good center in this league, but as of now he is just a top 10 center with very solid averages of 13 and 10

but to say hes bound to be a 20-14 center like dwight howard is pretty premature.

i rememebr a laker fan making the argument that if u put Bynum on the clippers hed but up 28-15 and 4 blocks, ill try to find the quote but thats where laker fans are going too far.

he has potential, but he is not a top tier big man just yet, give him time, laker fans need o chill out.

Very true, but he needs to go at it in a different way. He's obivously expecting to get a rise out of Laker fans by saying "Bynum sucks" instead of giving solid explanations as to why he feels that way, that can lead to actual discussions.

IndyRealist
09-15-2008, 05:17 PM
Actually no, I don't think he's overrated overall. Centers pretty much suck all around the league, and his 13/11 last year puts him in the top 5. Alot of people who would qualify ahead of him are playing PF instead of C, and acquiring 7fters to absorb the punishment Centers take (Duncan, Stoudamire, Nowitzki, etc.) After the top 4 names or so, it gets pretty ugly.

Pretty much what he just said, some Laker fans overrate him I'll agree but thats because we see him play every other day and saw some glimpse of what he CAN become in the later years.

He put up 28 and 12 on the Suns. I don't know what you are talking about.

15 and 11 as a starter with the NBA Best FG%.


He's a solid center.
Until he proves he can put up 20/10.. he will just be a top 20 center.

Only two centers put up 20/10. Why does he have to average that much just to be in the top 20. People are overrating OTHER centers. People on this site have said that Bynum has to average 25 and 10 or 20 and 10 just to be in the top 10 when, in actuality, there isn't a large crop of good centers so 15 and 10 is actually top 5 material nowadays.

Your question is a good one. It would probably apply to some teams as well. If a team or player is constantly bashed by a significant number of people, how is that team/player overrated?

As for the numerous Bynum threads-yes, unfortunately some of them are hate threads...and generally pointless.

we talk bout him so much. As of now hes a SOLID center. IN THE FUTURE he will 4 sure be an All-Star. As of NOW some people overrate him 2 much, but i def. will admit he has the talent and potential 4 sure 2 become an All-Star and amazing Center.

more overHYPED than overRATED. in other words, he has the talent, potential, and numbers deserving of the accolades hes been reciving. but he hasnt played enough significant time to have earned all of it. 13 and 10 for a 19, 20 year old is definitely something to respect and take notice of.

Exactly. He is a better player, but he is a power forward. That is why he was so terrible defensively last year. Not because he is actually a bad defender, but because he is a bit undersized to play center effectively on the other end of the floor (you know, the end that nobody cares about).

I came to the NBA forum seein the Suns get bashed cuz a new poster can't keep his hate filled opinions to himself.
I was actually going to defend some comments that were against the Suns in here but then I realized, that it's all in defense of what the thread starter said. So it makes no sense.
