Have not watched the lakers regularly for a while and noticed that Bynum is now by and far the #1 post player for la. dont get me wrong, bynum is a legit C, but have we all forgot about PAU GASOL? Perennial all star, generally consistent, best all around offensive post player in the NBA pau gasol.

brb:

-2x the shooter than Bynum from that medium short/long range
-completely ambidextrious
-better touch around the rim
-more fundamental moves
-2x the passer in every way
-higher iq


??????????

Bynum has a huge matchup advantage in this game. Pau can't get any kind of position with LeBron guarding him.

Bynamite? He officially became our 2nd option this season. He was the standout player by far in the off-season training camp according to our coaching staff and Mike B must have decided early that he was going to be the main recipient in the post this year b/c Pau and the others have been moving toward the arc trying to isolate Bynum in this Strong Corner offense we run now. That's why Pau was taking so many threes and long range 2s earlier this season.

it's not like they each carry a big sign identifying which option they are

whoever has a better game is getting the ball

This. Lebron made Pau look stupid tonight. Nobody can do that to Bynum.

It's also much easier to feed the ball to Bynum than to Pau. And without a true PG, the Lakers suck at feeding the ball into the post.

Because LeBron was guarding Gasol.

Bynum is not a bitch and is not afraid to throw his body into little phaggots like JJ Barea.

it happened early in the year when pau was still playing really ****y

he has really picked his game back up though

also, pau has been giving bynum some awesome passes out of the high post this year, he should play the fuarking point

this exactly. the very fact thatp au has the ability to make key passes alone is reason enough for him to start with the ball rather than bynum. with bynum u know its a shot attempt/turnover when he gets doubled

actually for about the past month/month and a half bynum has gotten better and better at reading the double and finding the open man. he was still pretty horrible at the beginning of the year
