    Default Kwame is out... you know what that means.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/s...e=NBAHeadlines

    Oneal vs. Bynum

    what perfect timing.

    for all the endless and tedious discussion about these two players in the past months I'm very interested to see them go toe to toe.

    Although I hope that JONeal will be able to show why he is a very solid Defensive Big Man.....I have a feeling that Bynum will show us why Jim Buss and DW covet him so much.

    I am willing to go as far as to say that IF Bynum was ever on the table for any deal involving JONeal ( and I'm not saying that he ever was ) ....even if it was just for Kwame and no Odom......we will one day regret not pulling the trigger on that deal.

    I am starting to seriously doubt that Bynum was ever on the table. I think DW or Larry would have pulled the trigger.

    I know I will take alot of flak for it....but it's just what I think. Bynum may or may not be an All-Star ( which is obviously debatable ).....but I think that he will be a very solid offensive/rebounding Center in the future.....IMHO sooner rather then later.

    It doesn't mean that I think that JONeal is a bad player or anything......but given the direction that I think this team is headed for....we need an athletic Big Man that can run the floor, rebound and efficiently score the ball in the low-post that doesn't require the offense to flow through him....basically a younger version of JONeal. If Bynum was ever available....then I would have hoped that we considered it. I know that it's useless to dwell on it and the boat has sailed on that, but I can dream can't I?

    They were saying the same thing about Eddy Curry a couple years ago. Whats he done for the Knicks? Commits a lot of turn overs

    I think Bird is a Odom type player so he would have asked for Odom and possibly Bynum just to salvage Donnie's demand for Bynum

    it's Donnie that would have pulled the trigger on Bynum.

    Curry gives the Knicks 18+ points a game on 13 FGA. I know that Curry is a horrible rebounder ( for his size ), can't defend a chair or block a shot from a little girl.....but Curry is IMHO very solid and efficient Low-Post scorer. My guess is that Bynum will be a better rebounding and shotblocking version of Curry in the future.

    A lot of you guys are talking about JO in terms of his past performance. The only thing that is relevant is how he is playing right now. He looks alright, but definitely not as explosive as he was in his younger days. He's only going to get worse from here.

    Bynum, OTOH, is nothing but upside. The kid is going to give you what you see now plus a whole lot more. A GM would be damn stupid not to pull the trigger on trading a 20 mil/yr declining center for a young buck stud whose contract is less than 3 mil/yr.

    That being said Bynum was never on the table, hence no deal at all.

    JO is clearly not 100% at the moment, trying to comeback from injury and playing in a very different system. I have no doubt he will perform better soon again. That said I wasn't and am not opposed to trading him if the price is right. Bynum and Odom was too much too ask for IMO. Bynum was def. not too much, except if the Lakers expected to get away with robbery.

    What about J-Crit? Isn't he supposed to be the real deal, ulta-athletic, smooth shooting guard? Who's this Farmer guy you're talking about? We got a lot of Farmers in Indiana.

    Wait are we sure Bynum is going to get the starting nod over Mihm? Or that they won't go with Odom and Turiaf as the starting frontcourt?

    Bynum lacks the body type to guard JO well and vice versa (at least with JO banged up).

    I'd expect more of Foster or Murphy on Bynum and JO on Turiaf, and then the reverse the other way.

    It will be fun to see the LA Kobies lose.

    mihm started when kwame was down before. my guess is that mihm gets the start but bynum still plays a larger portion of the minutes. we'll get to see that much hyped bynum-harrison matchup. getcha popcorn ready...

    isn't turiaf injured too? maybe his status is more day-to-day
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Turiaf is listed as questionable. I saw it earlier on ESPN.com.

    Harrison will probably get 5 quick fouls guarding Bynum

    I was at the game. It's truly only a matter of time for Bynum. He's already good, but when the light comes on for that kid and he reaches his full potential, it's gonna be scary to play him. Kobe being upset at the Lakers for not trading him is laughable.
