Andrew Bynum's commitment to the Lakers has been questioned at times this season, but his past few games are putting those concerns to bed. Bynum had 23 points and 16 rebounds in a win over the Mavericks, and it looks like his massive potential is finally being fully realized. J.A. Adande is even making the point that Bynum has trumped Dwight Howard as a force at center, at least for the time being.
Andrew Bynum has been turning it on lately: 30 rebounds, 30 points, a dominant double-double against the Mavericks.
Bynum or Howard?
Both Bynum and Howard have had their share of drama this season, but has Bynum overcome his issues more than Howard has overcome his?
Lakers without Kobe?
Bynum stepped up in a big way with Kobe Bryant out for the game -- much like the Bulls' supporting cast has tended to do when Derrick Rose has missed games this season.
