Today, I am doing players 10-6. There might be some surprising names in today’s list, but you shouldn’t be that surprised. These are guys are the best for a reason. Here we go!
10. Dwight Howard – While Howard might be “Super-Man”, he doesn’t top my list. He is the most physically-fit big man in the NBA, but his post-game is still a few years behind his body. What makes him so tough to guard is his athleticism and strength. He is one of the strongest players in the league and if he wasn’t fouled on every single play, I think we would see Howard score more. Also, if he could make his free-throws he would score more. Despite all the controversy he created during the season, there is no denying Howard’s talent. His post game is still raw, but his strength allows him to bully opponents. Howard is a stud. Now he needs to put it all together.
9. Andrew Bynum – Bynum is ahead of Howard because Bynum is more advanced offensively than Howard. While Bynum’s post game is still a little raw a...

I’m not sure what’s so funny about your team losing a playoff game, but Andrew Bynum obviously found something hilarious after the Lakers lost Game 2 to the Thunder 77-75. Bynum was spotted in the background of a Kobe Bryant shot from the TNT cameras with a big smile on his face when his team was walking off the court.
According to Kevin Ding, Bynum was laughing about Metta...
The Magic were very close to trading Dwight Howard before this year's trade deadline. Before his change of heart (the third or fourth time) and his waiver of his early termination option, the Magic were prepared to sever ties with their franchise center and move on.
The report and rumor was that the Magic intended to trade Howard to the Lakers and told him such, knowing he did...
Jason WhitneyAndrew Bynum has become a regular contributor in many sports blogs these days, and not for the right reasons. During the hotly contested Game 2, victory seemed imminent. Then, like a horrible ending to a good movie, the Lakers blew the game. Probably their best shot at making this an interesting series, came some interesting quotes by the newest Laker pariah.
Andrew Bynum clearly doesn’t have a care in the world. Win or lose Bynum still gets that paycheck and it has never been so evident after the Los Angeles Lakers had a meltdown late in the 4th quarter in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals and lost the game to the Thunder 77-75. That’s [...]
The Los Angeles Lakers have a decided advantage in their conference semifinals series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. His name: Andrew Bynum. Lakers fans, don’t hold your breath. Anyone who has watched the Lakers play over the last month, the last seven games against the Denver Nuggets in particular, knows that the odds of Bynum [...]
Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum was fined $15,000 for skipping a media session after the Lakers practiced Monday. Bynum had a solid showing in an otherwise disappointing showing by the Lakers against the Thunder, contributing 20 points and 14 rebounds in 31 minutes of playing time in the 119-90 Lakers loss. Second year lakers [...]
With one Team USA finalist after another being felled by injuries -- Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose and now perhaps Chris Bosh -- here's a sign of just how desperate the United States is:
It is looking for help from Lamar Odom, who couldn't find it in his heart to try for the Dallas Mavericks, and Anthony Davis, who would become the first collegian in 20 years to make the Olympic...
Tough call today between Ryan Hollins and Kevin Durant. Hollins had the alley-oop factor working in his favor, but I made the choice to roll with KD for the most obvious of reasons—simply because a one-handed slam over Andrew Bynum is more impressive than a similar dunk over Spencer Hawes. No disrespect to Spencer Hawes, it’s just that he’s more perimeter oriented, and...
We interrupt your NBA playoff fever for an update on Team USA and the looming 2012 Olympic basketball tournament which will prove to be an exciting one.
By now you all know senior members of the squad are dropping like flies. Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Chris Bosh all have succumbed to various injuries which will likely prevent them from...
It's been a week or so since we've seen Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant dunk on an opponent but he quickly got that out of the way early in game one of their series against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Watch as Durant throws down this dunk on Lakers center Andrew Bynum:
The Thunder beat the Lakers by the score of 119-90 and Durant chipped in with 25 points.
Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum sat on the Lakers bench to discuss strategy after the final buzzer sounded to announce their 119-90 Game 1 loss to the Thunder.
The Bozos of Basketball podcast is stronger than it's ever been and that train kept rolling tonight as the boys put out another exceptional show. Ben Kenna and host James Bucklin brought their award winning banter back to discuss all of the second round series' in the 2012 NBA Playoffs and every heavy topic that has to do with them. From Thunder and Spurs dominance to...
