What I like about Bynum is that he seems to have big spongy, strong hands. Once he is better acclimated to the offense, all our guys have to do is to put the ball where Bynum can get a hand on it because no one is going to take it away from him. Same thing on the boards. Unlike Roy and Ian, an opponent may gain a jump ball with Bynum, but they will never knock a ball from his hands. Also, as large as he is, he will not be spending any time on the floor, unlike one of the primary bigs on our roster.
Over the remainder of the season, I think the Pacers will devise a means to assist Bynum with the quicker players that attack him in the paint. And, they will learn to better cover an opposing 4 or 5 that wants to step away from the basket in an attempt to draw Bynum out.
It should be an interesting few weeks. I am really anxious to see how we adapt to best utilize Bynum. I think it will be great for us, and it will be great for him as well.
I don't think he's "fat" either, but I'd bet money on his body fat% being higher than Roy's. A 6' guy weighing 200lbs with 5% body fat will look smaller than a 6' guy weighing 200lbs with 13% body fat.

This cat knows a thing or two about playing winning basketball. He won two rings with Mamba and Philip barking in his ear. He is the only player on our roster who has been a key part of a championship team. Glad our players' quotes from last night show some respect for his talents as opposed to the smug annoyed quotes they gave us when he was first signed.
Bones probably have a higher density. Perhaps Roy doesn't have as much meat and fat on his huge frame?
So what did he really say for "troublesome?"
My guess is "MotherF----d up."
Bynum's frame is just wider. Roy is big and tall, but Bynum is just BIG. That doesn't necessarily mean he's fat.
