Forearms to the neck are not things normal people do.

"Andrew Bynum is seeing the lowest usage of any season since the arrival of Pau Gasol, only using 19.1% of his team's possessions. Such low usage in seasons past would have affected his effort in rebounding and defense. This season, however, Andrew also has the highest rebounding % (17.0) and block % (5.2) of the Pau Gasol era.

None of these numbers match his breakout 2008 season, but the addition of a second 7 footer was always bound to have an impact on Drew's individual numbers. That's a broad strokes view, but the fine print shows this new-found maturity in greater detail. Last season, Drew had less than 10 field goal attempts a total of 27 times, and in those 27 games, he managed 10 rebounds just twice. This season, Drew has already had less than 10 field goal attempts 25 times, and he's reached double figures in rebounding 7 times.

In terms of averages, in last season's < 10 FGA games, Drew averaged just 5.96 rebounds, nearly 3 less than his season average of 8.3; in this season's, he's averaged 7.36, just short of his overall season average of 7.7 (the decline in total season average is entirely minutes based). The same relationship can be seen in his blocks, which increased from 1.44 in last season's low usage games, to 1.76 this season. Judging by points instead of field goal attempts, Drew is averaging 6.9 rebounds this season in games in which he scored less than 10 points, as compared to 5.5 rebounds last season. He has three single doubles (less than 10 points, more than 10 rebounds) this season, and had none last year."

So he still tries despite having to be forced to play with two of the best players in the nba, the winningest coach in nba history, in the 2nd biggest market in America, where it's always beautiful, for one of the nba's 2 premier franchises?

Man, what a trooper.

Marcin Gortat > Andrew Bynum. The man had comparable numbers playing 20 minutes a game and coming off of the bench in Orlando and he's stepped up his game with more minutes in Phoenix. He's got terrible hands and still doesn't have a reliable jumper, but the guy's quick off of the pick-and-roll, a solid rebounder, and flat-out efficient when he's on the floor. Sure his numbers spiked due to playing with Steve Nash and more than 20 minutes a game, but I've never seen Bynum be an imposing force in any of his time in the league or be a dominant big man, no matter what his capacity is on the team.

there are no great centers in the NBA today, and that includes dwight howard. howard is very, very good. but considering the complete lack of dominant centers in the league, his numbers should be much better than they are. when shaq was left alone at the top... after olajuwon and ewing and robinson retired... he was an unstoppable force. howard is just very good. he should be better.

everyone else? please... it's a terrible era for centers in the NBA. just because you're towards the top of a pile of shit doesn't mean you're any good. andrew bynum is a nice player. nothing more. the lakers should be happy they have him, because "nice" is more than what most other teams have. but yea... he's okay.

You have to think San Antonio's injury woes and four game losing streak are going to delay our annual SC@NYC sighting by a couple weeks.

Let's hope the Spurs get that far, just for our own entertainment value in this thread.

That was a brutal 3rd quarter. The Heat are lucky to have escaped with an 8 point deficit.
