For someone who has yet to play a game for the Philadelphia 76ers or prove that he can be a difference-maker for their franchise, Andrew Bynum is awfully confident. While it’s still incredibly early, you could make the argument at the moment that the Los Angeles Lakers were better with Bynum than they are with Dwight Howard. A number of other factors are at play, but Bynum still feels he is a better center than Howard. In addition to saying Howard will have to learn how to not touch the ball every play now that he is teammates with Kobe Bryant, Bynum threw in the following comment when asked if all the trade rumors bothered him when he was in L.A. “It didn’t really matter where I played as long as I get to,” he told Kevin Ding of the OC Register. “Health is the big concern with me right now. I don’t regret anything. Personally, I think they traded No. 1 for No. 2 — and that’s what happened.” Bynum is certainly right about health being the big concern at the moment — especially if he continues to bowl in his free time. As for who is a better player, Howard has been more consistent throughout his career both offensively and defensively. Bynum has all the talent in the world when healthy, but there are always questions about his attitude. That being said, he does have two NBA championship rings. Until Howard wins one, Bynum will always have that over him.
