He should be the first option on that team, but Kobe insists on being a ballhog

was thinking the same thing :laigh2:

i think its more impressive for a perimeter player considering the difficulty level of shots they take.

I expect an elite offensive bigman like bynum to have high fg%

ok, he's 19-20 in the restricted area, 2-3 in the paint(non ra) and 1-1 midrange

nice to see all the 'bryant is selfish' people taking a vacation from the forum today. bryant made the call to go to Bynum, not brown.

The top five center debate is starting to get interesting:

if he does that then using himself as a decoy doesn't work anymore. bynum still struggles with doubles and tripple teams. only way the dude faces single coverage at the end of games is if teams believe that bryant is taking the last shot. there needs to be an unpredictable balance.

No I love Kobe but they really need to run it through Bynum more, he's been an absolute beast this season

There's a really simple explanation for this. Most of the time in clutch situations Kobe has the ball in his hand and the only time Bynum gets a FGA is when he's wide open because Kobe is being doubled or he gets an easy putback off of a Kobe miss.

Another example of where stats don't really tell the whole story.

On national TV, Kobe basically told eff u to Dwight because Dwight always wanted to be the closer, but Kobe designed the play for Bynum to close the game against the Celtics.


Kobe told you Dwight! :laugh2:

Literally all he does is dunk. 100% of his clutch shooting is in the restricted area (7/10), and 89% of his regular shots are in the restricted area (not the paint... the restricted area. haha). Over the course of the season he's taken 6 shots outside of the paint.

This. Most are over the top lobs or alley-oops from Lin or another perimeter player. I'd suggest we feed him for some traditional postups but with his injury it's better this way for the time being. He's playing his role on the team to perfection.

In regards to Bynum, I wish we could see him in the 90s. It's so hard to judge true centers these days going against the likes of Brook Lopez and Samuel Dalembert.

Bynum is good at the dunking, and the alley-ooping, and the dominating of the paint and stuff.

This guy speaks the truth. Bynum would put up monster stats and Lakers would win a lot more had they made Bynum the number 1 scoring option. But you know as long as Kobe is there he'll keep chucking it up no matter how inefficient he is.

It's something everyone has to respect, really. For a guy to understand his role THAT MUCH is basically unimaginative.

I can't believe was going to be on OKC too, for practically nothing.

Yeah, that's really too bad that did not go through the physical.

If you think about it, there's a good chance they've already been to the finals and possibly won a title (last season) if Tyson is on OKC and not Dallas.

And it's not the normal "what if" scenario. The guy literally had his bags packed for OKC.

Oh well, they'll get a few chances at it.

Actually Bynum has a 0.86PPP for his postplays this season, while Kobe has a 0.88PPP and Pau has a 1.00PPP in the postplays run for him... Yet Bynum still leads the team with 336 postplays run for him, Kobe with 252 and Pau with 212.

Technically they should run the ball through Pau most in the half-court sets, then Kobe and finally Bynum. It's deceiving when you're watching because they post Bynum up so much more.

As a coach or fan of that team, isn't that what you would want? What would you rather have, Kobe going 1 on 3 and shooting a 21 foot fadeaway, or Kobe being a decoy and dumping it to Bynum for a 4 footer? Alas, option 1 in that scenario happens far more often, which is fine with me.

I guess if the game's on the line and Lakers down by 3 they should feed it inside because he's money in clutch time. #fail article.

It's not that much less important because the shots are in the paint, it's a matter of whether they were assisted or shots he can create on his own at will consistently. If they are shots he can create/get off in clutch time consistently, why not give him the ball?

I'm sure he would definitely agree with you.
