Not surprised to see Bynum on the list, he's been beasting it all season, but Gooden? I'm glad to see he's been playing well, I always thought he was a solid player that got overlooked by a lot of teams. Its nice to see hard work get rewarded once in a while.

That's Ersan Ilyasova and Drew Gooden of the Bucks as back to back players of the week. I think we all saw that coming.

I will absolutely eat crow on what I said to start this season. When people put Bynum 2nd overall when it came to centers, I just laughed at them. Now that he's been able to remain healthy, he has clearly shown that he's the #2 guy... and the gap between 2 and 1 isn't as far as it seemed in the offseason. Congrats to him.

The Lakers have got to make him a more consistent option. I mean I know Kobe is the main man, but they got to get Bynum at least 17-20 shots per game.. not the 12 he's averaging right now. If they do, then I think basically every team in the west will have serious problems with them come playoff time... As I can only think of a couple of star centers that will combat them without losing horribly (Gaslol, Duncan although is usually PF).


Congrats to both, Gooden has been randomly great lol

Stuckey should have gotten it for the east.

Nah, he put up a ****-er last night and the Pistons lost 3 of 4. Gooden had all good or great games and the Bucks were 4-0. Stuckey did have a few great games though.

I'm in the same boat. I thought it was utterly ridiculous to place it at #2 but that's definitely changed.

Bynum has been the 2nd best center in terms of talent/skill for the past 4 or 5 years. Thats all I have ever heard and said, I dont think anyone tried to imply they knew if he could stay healthy or not, we have simply been speakin in terms of on the court ability.

But welcome to the party, coincidentally hes under performed abit this year.

He was injured last night, and has averaged 23.5/6.5/3.3/1.0 over the week. Plus he was playing very well before last week. I still think he shoulda got it.

Exactly - health has really been my only concern with him. In that sense I can't really blame people for being hesitant about him. For people who watch Bynum regularly, they will see that when he gets consistent opportunities and his teammates are looking for him, the guy is almost unstoppable. He is just going to keep getting better as he gets more practice playing against double teams.

Really? Bynum is having a career year, especially in points and rebounds.
I'll admit, I also thought he was heavily overated all these years, mainly because he was injured and not playing healthy. I wouldn't say he has been a top 2 Centre for the past 5 years, but if your saying he had the skill set to be top 2 then I would have to agree with you.

Hopefully he can remain healthy and keep up his good play :clap:

He was dangerously efficient when Kobe and Pau were at their best.
