Who is the better player? Who would you rather have?

11-04-2010, 05:29 PM
Is Bynum in uniform or is he in his suit as usual?

Bynum is the better player since he's really good on defense and is much better offensively. His post moves are really good, and considering he's limited in terms of touches because of the team he plays in, 15 points on 57% shooting [last year] isn't bad at all.

Last season, both played around the same amount of games [Bynum had +1] and Bynum led him in PER, TS%, eFG%, and Win Shares.

The only knock on Bynum is that he's always injured .. I can't help to ask though why Noah only played 64 games, meanwhile Drew played 1 more game than him? [asking because I'm not sure] Didn't realize Noah missed so many games last season.

He missed those games with plantar fasciitis after the Bulls' season was pretty much decided. If they had been in contention (and not as young and promising) he probably would have played more. Really that's just a nagging injury unless you get it bad.

Bynum is better at every facet of the game, besides hustle... Noah is a rich man's Varejao, that's about it.

Wow. Not even close. Noah is far superior to Varajeo and I think he's so much better defensively than Bynum that there's no reason to take Bynum if your team has any offense (which both of those teams do).

and dwight howard is a wannabe shaq....too bad he will never be half the player that prime shaq was.

Bynum is the better player but Noah actually plays....If I was SURE that Bynum wouldn't get hurt he'd be the right choice but with Bynum your almost SURE he's gonna get hurt thus far in his career.

Depends what your team needs.

Do they need a high energy 7 footer who can rebound, block shots, and get you 12-18 points per game?


Do they need a injury prone 7 footer with 4 knee surgeries who only can play when the playoff come around?

Noah for me

Option A Please!!! I'd take a consistent high productivity (albeit mostly hustle) guy in Joakim Noah over the flashes/potential and expectations of Andrew Bynum.

Andrew Bynum is better by a wide margin. But he's always injured so i'd rather have Noah

I would definitely take Noah. Fantastic hustle, defense, and rebounding.

11-06-2010, 11:03 AM
I like a Center who's able to play, and play w/ a ton of hustle. Plus, as ugly as it is, his shot is coming along. Hope you don't think I'm talking about Bynum

11-06-2010, 11:27 AM
Option 2

Bynum when healthy is better. But give me the consistency.

11-06-2010, 03:47 PM
Depends on the rest of my team. If I'm starting a franchise I'd rather have Bynum's upside. If I need low post scoring, I'd rather have Bynum's offensive game. If I'm already a great team and have a top PF, give me Noah's health, consistency, defense, rebounding, etc.

Bynum is better, but I'd rather have Noah.
