Man Lebron is crazy. He almost gets a triple double every night he plays. MVP worthy.

Definately a great week for him. Just a question for Lakers fans: How has he looked this year? My understanding was that the Pau/Bynum front court wasn't gelling as hoped. Maybe Bynum is finding more of a niche with the new look Lakers? (addition of Pau after he got injured).

The problem with Bynum (and the rest of the team at times) is effort. When he puts in some effort, he's a tremendous force on the defensive end, but when there's no effort, he's very frustrating.

The passed few games we've been using Bynum as our main option down low instead of Gasol.............and he's been doing wonders for us. We've won each of our last 4 games by 15+ point and Bynum has been playing out of his mind. He pretty much man handled Duncan in the game against the Spurs.

I wouldn't exactly say he "man handled" Duncan, but he did perform above expectations.
