The New and Improved Andrew Bynum
Lakers are now 10-1 since the all-star break only losing to the Miami Heat. A BIG reason for the success of the second half surge is No. 17 Andrew Bynum. In his last 11 games Bynum is averaging 12 pts. 13 rebs. and 3 blocks. He's a defensive monster and the Lakers are reaping the benefits from his inside presence.
The usual 1-2 punch in Kobe/Gasol now have the jab fans have been waiting for all season long. With Bynum now contributing in a major way Kobe can afford to have an off night and not have to address his team and more importantly the media afterward.
The Kid can play! We've all known that but we just didn't know when he would start to play. Apparently he's decided to turn it up at the beginning of the midway mark. The champs are playing at their true potential now that they have an entirely healthy squad.
It's now time to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride to another Lakers 3-peat.
