I have never considered him a star. I always thought he had a ton of potential but tonite he has blown me away. I never thot that he had it in him to put up numbers like these. I know that this is against the Clippers who have no healthy big men but he is still 3rd option after Kobe and Pau. You have gotta be impressed with his performance tonite.

That is a rediculous game tho, gotta admit, and his name wont be heard being the 3rd option but his stats are not that bad, 12.7 ppg 7.7 rebounds 1.7 blocks 1.6 assists, great game.

Monster game, but then again it was against the Clippers. But still, he has found his offense the past few games averaging 19.8 the past 5 contests. His future is bright, but still has a long road ahead of him.

Fun tidbit: this was the first time a player scored 40 points in a Laker uniform not named Kobe Bryant, after the Shaq-era.

Bynum has always been good this year... its just that he has always been a 3rd option after kobe and gasol. He will get his chance to dominate now because kobe isnt shooting as much.

As much as he was hyped going into the year, he's finally shaking off signing that huge deal. He has been scoring great the last few games and I think he's finally about to get back to his pre-injured self from last year.

While, on the flipside, the other has been in the league for 4 years now, many say he's the next coming of Shaq and put him in their top 5s. A for effort though

Bitter? Hardly, I greatly enjoyed the game and chuckled, considering we lost by a measley 3 points more then we did against the Wolves Monday afternoon.

But everyone was saying he did it against the Clippers and they were banged up. Its still a very nice stat line. What Jordan did was also impressive. But if someone started a thread saying how good a night he had, I dont think anyone would be a douche like you and say, "Yeah, well a 21 year old kid who had been severely underachieving, coming off a bad injury and is a 3rd or 4th option on the Lakers dropped 42 points, 15 boards with 3 blocks on 70% shooting on his @$$" :rolleyes:

Besides the OP, no one mentioned the injuries, regardless, I wouldn't make a thread based off one game, even though I'd have more right to considering its barely his 2nd NBA start and is still extremelly raw as he jumps on every fake, relies on athleticism to grab rebounds as opposed to boxing out and getting position, along with having 0 offensive game.

Besides the original poster? Who else do you want. He let it be known right off the bat that he did it against a very bad and also undermanned team. Do you want everyone to be making the same point over and over again?


Here, Ill give you the disclaimer you wanted..
Bynum had a nice game but............ The Clippers were missing Camby, Kaman, ZBo, and Davis. They were not very good with them playing and still not very good without them. They have only 9 wins. They almost have the worst record in the league. Anyone who puts up monster stats on this team should have an asterisk next to it cause they did it against the Clippers.

You happy now?

Impressive, yes, thread worthy? Far from it. You'd expect with how people are hyping this dude up, he would be putting up 20/10 at least.

No problem. Anytime.

And even though you said it in a dick way, you are kinda right. Jordan did have a great game against Bynum. Maybe they made an agreement not to guard each other so they could both get gaudy stats.

And you know why he's not putting up so good numbers every single day? Because he's behind Kobe and Gasol. He's the 3rd option on the team, and averages 29 minutes a game. Quit hating dude. :rolleyes:

If its not thread worthy, why even bother viewing it? :rolleyes:

GspLAL
01-22-2009, 03:13 AM
Explain how he's supposed to put up 20/10 when theres Kobe, Gasol, and Odom on the team and they all need the ball too, Lakers are stacked so it's hard to score that much, BUT the last few games he's been getting way more touches and averaging what, 18 19 in the last 6 games? something like that...

I love how anything about Lakers turns into a hating spree.

BigSix316
01-22-2009, 03:27 AM
I do think that he should be getting ~10 boards per game. But he's only getting 9.8 FGA per game, and that's counting the 24 he got tonight.

Shots per game:

Kobe - 20.4 FGA
Gasol - 12.0 FGA
Bynum - 9.8 FGA
Fisher - 9.3 FGA
Odom - 7.4 FGA
Ariza - 7.0 FGA

The Lakers average 83.8 FGA per game and Kobe takes 24.4% of them.


Over his last eight games, Bynum is getting 20.1 ppg on 60.6% shooting and averaging 13.6 FGA.


On a side note, Kobe is averaging 26.1 ppg, 7.4 rpg and 9.9 apg in his last seven games.

Who cares what grich thinks. He roots for losers. I was very impress with Bynum. I said it the other day. If he played with more passion who would dominate. I love being right.

01-22-2009, 03:51 AM
i wodner how many points would Odom, Pau or fisher score if some night they were alowed to take 35+ attempts at the basket....

And by the way if Gasol made a 40 points game but alowed a player like Deandre to score that much everybody woudl be on his nuts calling him gasoft.....

GoatMilk
01-22-2009, 04:24 AM
i dont mean this the way it may sound so bear with me.

Bynum's 42 is more than Dwight(39) and Yao(41) have EVER scored in a game. <3

and just to prove i dont mean anything, Eddy Curry scored 43 points before(in OT)

Bosh=nextKG
01-22-2009, 04:25 AM
i already think pau is kinda soft and Andrew showed that he's got wut it takes. Thats all I meant by this thread. He has been hyped up and today he proved that he can become a star in this league. He still has to improve alot so that these stats stay consistent but its impressive that anyone can score 40 pts when Kobe is on your team. Then you got Pau as well. getting 15 boards is impressive too wen u got another 7 footer in there but come on 17-24, 42 pts. Kobe has to take 10 more shots in order for him to get 40 pts. That efficiency right there is beautiful, ohh n also i'm prolly the farthest thing from a lakers fan, i wus just impressed.

Hellcrooner
01-22-2009, 04:35 AM
^ Of course kobe needs to take 10 more shots, you know? its mroe difficult for guards to score with good% than for centers, because basically they take jupers from some disntance instead of dunks.

And Bynum has still a long way to go before he is an star, for the moment heis in the eddie curry sweepstakes.

I hope he learns some D and to hustle more than he does ( liek today) and that he does not come nearern than 15 kilomenteres to a BUrger king so eh does not walk the same path as curry.

01-22-2009, 04:40 AM

this was really a monster game on Bynums part.
and it doesnt really matter that it was against the Clippers, u gotta remember that these guys are all in the NBA and some of em can play some defense.
the thing was that Kobe was passing the ball, and he was gettin double teams so Bynum would be wide open.
also something that caught my eye was that he had the 42 points in just 36 minutes of action.

So going 17 for 24 is pure luck, huh? I guess his free throws and rebounds and blocks were alllllllllllllll luck.

NO ONE can count on a performance of 42 pts 15 rbs 3 blocks every night. That would be legendary. Thanks for your input. Really appreciate it.

I'm just saying. Going against the Clips. and he's the only big man out there. Kinda pointless to bring up how good did. Thats nothing to brag about. How manytimes when he actually goes against a decent team. he gets 11pts and 3 rebounds pretty pathetic for a center

One thing though: Kobe was hand feeding Bynum a lot of those points.

Yeahhh, that was weak sauce, against a team like the Clippers, Bynum should have scored at least 60 pts and at least 30 rebounds with at least 17 blocks!! :rolleyes:

All you haters can go back to your own team forum and hate on your own center because they'll never get 42 pts against a team like the Clips! hahah waaaaa waaaaaa! :mad:

don be jealous please if that game was nothing because clippers have no defense and bigmen then explain this

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/boxscore;_ylt=Apu24UeAQChm2mM2QRMMONSQvLYF?gid=200 9011912
al jefferson only 20 points

Look at Craig Smith, a 9/3 guy went for 20-8.

Also, look at DeAndre going for 8/10 with 6 blocks, meaning, Big Al was playing defense and didn't allow an extremelly raw 20-footer to go for 23/12 and only miss 1 shot. Plus, he didn't have anyone spoon feeding him the ball to stat-pad.

I'm fine with Bynum giving up 20 a night if he averages 42 a game. It's ridiculous to consider a 42 pt game by a 7 foot 21y.o. anything but a great thing. Man, it must be frustrating to be a Clips fan.

First of all those threads are made in the CELTICS forums so thats quite alright in my book. I love when people say Rondo only has assist because the Big 3. Are the BIG 3 the only people Rondo could pass to that would put the ball in the hoop. Be real when your debating dude. Rondo has amazing court vision and is a play maker. He gets to the rim at will and is always looking to set up his teammates. He thinks Pass first, pass second, shoot 3rd. Put Rondo on another team and hes going to set up those guys and get em great looks. On the celtics, he gets to pass to 3 future HOFers. I find it funny though that people think that. Like Rondo ONLY passes to the Big 3..lol

I thought 14 and 10 for this year, there is no way he could be a 18 to 20ppg scorer with all the scorers the Lakers have and he only shoots about 10 times a game. He is shooting 55%.:D

Not when teams play off him and let him shoot thats why he has nights with like 4 or 7 points. Most teams haven't figured out that you don't have to guard Rondo, just have his man play back and let him shoot.

Not impressed. Bad team - bad defender on him and a team with no morale. I've seen Darius Miles and other dudes put up 44 too. lol! Til Bynum shows he can do this vs a contending team I dont care. He has super potential though and this is a glimpse of it. However can he play like this frequently with Pau beside him....remains to be seen.

Tony Delk, George McCloud, Dale Ellis, Terry Cummings, all these players have had great games 50+ points in a game I wouldn't exactly say these are high caliber NBA superstars. I will say that Bynum has more potential he showed it tonight but I am not about to crown this guy the next great big man. His number reflect more of a Sam Bowie thus far. Lot's of promise but a lot of work to do if he wants to be a superstar or even a star in this league.

Perk isnt asked or needed ONE BIT on the offensive end. If Perk put up 42 points in a game id ****. Bynum right now is a better opffensive player. Perk imo is a much better defender and rebounder. Hes a big tough mofo. Plays with an edge. If Perk develops low post moves and a decent 10 ft jump shot we would be even scarier if thats possible.

he's a bust in the sense that everybody and their mom thought that bynum would be that savior of the "defensive" side. Yes bynum is young, he could be a sernior college for christ sake, but the hype was there that bynums defense would take the lakers over the top.

I find it irrelevant though, the lakers are still a top 3 team in the league, and whether or not it's on BYNUM to make the difference against the BIG 3 or LBJ in the finals is up to him.

True. That Bynum can score is nice...but the Lakers need him to focus on defense and rebounding foremost.

I don't want him to be like Amare Stoudemire, getting a prima donna attitude about the amounts of touches on offense, and meanwhile not being held accountable for defensive lapses.

GodsSon
01-22-2009, 08:36 PM
Nice stat line, but prior to the season so many people were hailing him to be the next coming of shaq, and he hasnt lived up to those expectations. On top of that, he was voted top 5 centres in the league on the PSD forum? As a Raptor fan, i guess you can group Bargnani alongside him then right now (check the stats between the two) as a top 5 centre lol

GspLAL
01-22-2009, 08:37 PM
Nighthawk you really have no knowledge, just stop trying..we don't expect Bynum to average 20 points a game because we don't need it. So far he's doing exactly what we need him to do, the only thing he's not doing so well in the last couple games is rebounding but even then he's still averaging a decent amount (8), if he gets 2-3 more in his average to go along the 13 points and 2 blocks he's getting, thats perfect. We hype him because we have seen him play and see what he can do, we've seen his footwork, post moves, and now he has a jumpshot to go with it, all he needs are touches now, WE LAKER FANS HAVE SEEN IT, people who don't watch Lakers daily won't understand so stop trying to act like you know **** about our team.

Last I checked this was an NBA forum and I'm pretty sure Bynum is part of the NBA. People just wanna hate cuz its about the Lakers..I don't see people flippin out about Derick Rose or the Granger all star thread.

Laker fans do not consider him a bust by any means. He hasn't lived up to expectations thus far, but since Laker fans expect all their players to be godlike every night, its not really saying much. He has done well enough so far, we're not complaining at 33-8.

Andrew is the 3rd option on the team so all you idiots giving me ****, shut the **** up. Non one has played on a team with Kobe and scored 40 pts in a game since 2003. Thats why this game was amazing, not just because he had good stats

Bynum is doing what the Lakers need him to do. He is not going to average 20-12 anytime soon, maybe never. His personal growth is and has been stunted due to the team he is on, but he is getting valuable playoff experience this year, and learning how to be on a team that wins. We will see if he eventually develops into what he may have been if he were on the Wolves, or the Grizzlies for example. I doubt it, but he at least has a great chance to win a ring in the next few years, something many greats never get.

Drew is getting it done over the last nine games, that's for sure.

31.8 mpg
20.4 ppg
7.1 rpg
61.2 FG%
70.6 FT%

Now I know nine games doesn't make a career, or even a season. But he's in a pretty good stretch right now. Hopefully he can keep it up.

Realistically, if he got 14 ppg and 11 rpg while providing a defensive presence inside, I'd be happy. I'm sure the Lakers would be too.

Great game by Ariza, 0-6 shooting :rolleyes:

1. If that was the case then why doesn't every big man that plays against the Clippers have games like Bynum!?!?!

2. Deandre Jordan scored most of his points while Bynum was not guarding him and while Bynum was on the bench. Jordan barely even got the ball when Bynum was guarding him. Most of Jordan's damage was done against Gasol and off P & R during switches with late rotations.

It's going to be a while before Bynum ever makes an all star team because Yao is always going to be the starter because of all the Chinese votes he gets.

Bynum will probably make an all-star team before Al Jefferson. It seems like the coaches are putting a lot of emphasis on winning and not just stats. They will probably put a player with lesser stats, but on a winning team rather than a player with larger stats on a loser team. There was a huge discussion about this on TNT yesterday.

Also, he showed off some sweet offensive moves in the 2nd OT man. Really goes to show you how invaluable it is to have a teacher like Kareem show you the proper foot work and post moves. This kid is gonna be a star. How big? Who knows, but he will be a force to reckon with in the near future.

he didnt do that on purpose. I am sure it is easier to beat the Lakers when Kobe fouls out.....

And I'm sure it's easier to beat the Bobcats when you knock out their best player on offense AND defense.

He didn't even go for the ball, he went right for his body, and not only that, he gave him a shot to the ribs with his elbow. If you are trying to foul a guy and not hurt him, your wrap him up. Bynum was out of position and should have just let him go, he had no chance to even make a play on the ball.

If you can prevent a dunk without hurting a guy, then yes. But he was so out of position that he couldn't make any sort of play on the ball. He went right for his body, which is a flagrant, and in my opinion, a dirty play.

If Okafor laid Kobe out like that you'd be saying the same thing.

it was a bad foul, but it wasn't dirty. i dont want to sound like a kobe dickrider because i'm not. i like to be fair on these types of things.

so again, bad foul. i say it's not dirty because it really was all an accident. Bynum went to try and draw a charge, saw he was too late, then tried to lock him up. unfortunately Wallace was going so fast that when he hit a wall, it was just bad news.

he's a bust in the sense that everybody and their mom thought that bynum would be that savior of the "defensive" side. Yes bynum is young, he could be a sernior college for christ sake, but the hype was there that bynums defense would take the lakers over the top.

I find it irrelevant though, the lakers are still a top 3 team in the league, and whether or not it's on BYNUM to make the difference against the BIG 3 or LBJ in the finals is up to him.

Lakers are 19-2 when he blocks 2 or more shots per game 3-4 when he doesn't get any blocks. So I can see why some Lakers fans think he can be the savior besides Bynum is way better than Gasol at center, If Celtics didn't have Perkins last year and had to play Garnett at center, C's fans would be saying the same thing, not because Perkins is great but because he moves Garnett back to his natural position.

i dont really think bynum tried to draw a charge cuz 9 out of 10, refs wont call it a charge. i just think he wanted to block it but was WAY late.

and who ever thinks that was a dirty play then they should look at a replay cuz bynum tried to help him up. no malice intended, just a VERY hard foul.

We would have got beat in the Playoffs and we wouldn't have been the number 1 seed. We only lost like 5 or 6 games with Gasol in the lineup in the regular season, that would not have happened with Bynum, he was a 13ppg and 10rpg player. Gasol was 18ppg and 8rpg.

Coming down awkwardly on your leg the same way Livingston did is an accident. Donte colliding with D-Rose and having to leave the game was an accident. Bynum, stretching out with the length of his body and undercutting Wallace as he went up for a dunk was a boneheaded, reckless play that should be punished. Ref's typically don't call flagrant fouls on accidents.

Maybe ten or twenty years ago, that statement would be true. Now, with Stern's current regime, that is becoming increasingly untrue. If a defensive player hits the offensive player in the head -- even if he is going for the ball -- and knocks the player to the ground, then said defender will almost certainly be called for a flagrant, even if the contact itself is not particularly 'harsh' and/or is largely incidental. If the fouled player is subsequently carted off the court to the clubhouse, then you can bet the refs will assess a flagrant, even if the physicality of the play itself was relatively meager or minuscule compared to its aftermath.

Nowadays, officials regularly make calls based on the outcome of plays rather than the merits of the court actions themselves. To claim otherwise is simply naive ... :shrug:

No it isn't. Because he does know what he is talking about. I've watched the Lakers, trust me. It hurts to do it, but I do. It's agonizing to see Pau Gasol scream like the Williams sisters every time someone touches him, and to watch Kobe Bryant mug a guy, only to turn to the ref and whine (like he did to Raja Bell the other night). After about 3 hacks at the ball they finally called a foul, and Kobe looked at the ref like he was crazy.

Sorry, but you are unconvincing ... Bryant gets hacked more frequently without calls coming his way than any NBA superstar since Wilt Chamberlain and Gasol is an extremely fluid and skilled player whose finesse level has gotten him unfairly labeled as 'soft' by the media when he has played against 'goon' style teams like Boston and [ yes ] Utah with the rules improperly enforced. The reason for their histrionics on the court is the fact that they do NOT get their fair share of calls from the referees on most evenings and their coach has a tendency to not work the officials as aggressively as a Sloan or a Brown [ or any number of other NBA coaches ] do as advocates for their players ...

I've been a Kings fan since....1995 and I've liked the Bobcats since they became a franchise in 2004. One is in the Western Conference, one is in the East. I'm a Kings fan first, but I like the Bobcats too. Didn't know that was a problem. It is pretty funny to be called a bandwagon fan by a Laker fan though, it's appreciated.
