    Andrew Bynum has a better offensive game than Dwight Howard.

    I'm not Laker fan, but if Bynum could stay healthy, he'd be the best C in the NBA.

    I agree he's better at offense, but healthy he still isn't Dwight.

    I think it's odd the lack of playin time he gets, you put Bynum and Pao in there and they would be doing much better tonight IYAM

    Howard would be unstoppable if he developed an offensive game.

    He's not the most skilled guy, but his freak athletic ability make up for it. Shaq wasn't skilled like Hakeem, but his sheer size made him a force. Same for Howard, ut it's his athleticism.

    Yea, basically the only thing he does well is dunk. 15 ft+ is brutal.

    :roll:

    I think Howard has a higher drive to rebound and block shots(neither is a particularly awesome one-on-one defensive big man, but Howard is certainly better on help D)...but the comparisons to Shaq are a joke, offensively. Four years into the league, and too many of his points come off of alley-oops and offensive putbacks.

    Bynum's already got a handful of offensive moves he can use to get to the basket. Shame he can't play a full season.

    He avg'd 20 a game. That's a decent "offensive game". Sure, most of that is dunks, but who cares? Shaq was the same way. You don't have to have a nice J and drop step to have a good offensive game. If you can just physically dominate, so be it.

    Yeah, but Shaq got a lot of his points in the flow of the offense. Howard gets at least half of his off broken plays and rebounds. Best rebounder in the league, and one of the top 3 shot blockers, just not an offensive force. He reminds me a lot of David Robinson, just without the offensive game. Personality, physique, etc.

    If he had an offensive game those numbers would be 30 or above. Take him from one of the best to the best.

    I don't blame Bynum for complaining about playing time in this series. He has been 100x better than Odom, who has proven to be a choke artist and a small game player.

    Agreed. Gasol and Bynum should be on the floor.

    I agree, but broken plays and offensive boards are still part of the offensive game. That's all I'm saying.

    Yeah, he gets a lot of points off of knowhow and being in the right place at the right time, and obviously based on his superior athleticism. I guess what I'm trying to say is that he'll never be great when players like Kendrick Perkins can shut his post game down. When you can't go to your star player in the clutch, that hurts. He's a smart guy though that can eventually develop a good post game.

    Now that I agree with. He needs to improve his post game. That's a true statement. I don't think the "offensive game" statement was, though, bc kid does avg 20 ppg. That's decent offensive production. But yea, if he could post up more often, sweet Jesus.

    Gotcha. I just took the OP to mean post game when he said offensive game. I just don't feel like he would be as effective if he didn't have great shooters around him or played in some other system(i.e. in the Olympics). He's still young though, and an elite athlete, so he could very well become a great big man.

    OP probably meant post up game. I was just being a technical dick. That's what I do. :heythere:
