Kaman probably for the whole

Kaman probably for the whole season but bynum was outplaying him before Pau came back.

well pau is on the lakers,

well pau is on the lakers, so he was taking advantage of him being gone. his numbers post pau's return are more indicative. also, stats wise, he was not outplaying kaman to start.

i think he was outplaying

i think he was outplaying him and kaman's numbers would drop too if he had pau on his team.

Bynum is better imo, just

Bynum is better imo, just change their teams and Bynum would dominate while Kaman might even would come from the bench with Pau at C and Lamar at PF

Kaman

Not knocking Bynum down,but probably Kaman... Some would argue that pre-Gasol Bynum was outplaying Kaman, however, pre-Gasol Bynum still had Kobe, Artest and Odom which is definitely an upgrade over Kaman's cast, specially considering B-Diddy's and Al Thornton's penchant at throwing bricks, and Eric Gordon being injured at the time, which means more double teams for Kaman...

bynum numbers were better

bynum numbers were better actually but not by alot. both were playing like all stars but i cant really compare since ones on a winning team and the other is on a losing team so its hard to really compare. we alreayd established that putting up numbers on a bad team doesnt mean awhole lot or else kevin martin and a bunch of others probably would be getting picked as reserves on the all star team

I like Bynum better, I think

I like Bynum better, I think it's extremely close. I think Kaman has played better this year though, while Bynum, of course, has the higher upside for the future.

i expected kaman to put up

i expected kaman to put up better numbers with the addition of gasol just like if you switched the 2 bynum numbers would look better then his. i still think kaman is a very good player though but ill take bynum even if i wasnt a laker fan. wed trade fisher for b-diddy though. thats the only starter id trade with them for

I can't say that really,

I can't say that really, because I don't know what would happen "if" somehting else happened, but I do think Bynum has the ability to be a dominant player in the NBA in the future. But this season, Kaman has been the better of the 2.

i just look at how bynum

i just look at how bynum played before gasol came back. he was dominate and argueably the best center in the nba. so i base it off of that when he was getting around the same touches as kahman was and was getting alot more praise while putting up better points rebs fg percentage and blks and higher efficancy rating

I understand that logic...I

I understand that logic...I do think that Bynum would really show his skills more if he were a featured option, and I think once Kobe retires it'll be Bynum's team. I can't wait to see what that'd be like..

and since this is based on

and since this is based on pure numbers then monta ellis should be top 5 ahead of joe jonson and roy because he puts up better points/reb/ast combined. since no one takes into account win loss. also david lee is the second best center

qhodges, its hard to take u

qhodges, its hard to take u seriously when u say bynum was the best center in the nba. oh ya, definitely better than howard. he was probably 4th behind howard, stoudemire, and kaman (yes kaman, the same kaman who one western conference player of the week in a 4-0 week for the clippers - a winning team for a week and he played well, hmmm...). ur very biased.

i wasnt the only one saying

i wasnt the only one saying that. he was playing liek the best center at the time. if you recall howard wasnt playing that well. there was also a post about it and many people agreed so i guess they were biased too huh? see i talk down on my team when they dont play well thats not biased you on the other hand never talk down about how bad the clippers play even though they are ranked 13th out of 15 in the west?...and you seem to forget all the big talk you were talking about them during the summer. hmmmm i dont seem to recall you saying much about how wrong you have been about all that stuff so far. i can understand you try to take solice in kaman scoring or playing well but you dont take into account that it doesnt lead to many victories so what does that really say about how well hes playing?..does it matter if a player scores or rebounds or does very well in any stat if there team loses?.

actually, when we lost to

actually, when we lost to the suns i said they are horrible and play with no heart and need a new coach. so ya i do talk down the clippers. plus, its a long season so its not like being 4 games out of the playoffs in december means ur out of it. and ur the only one who said that bynum was the top center. maybe another laker fan or another account of urs said that too, but no way was that true.

Clippers

Yea... You've talked down on the Clippers. At one point, you wanted to trade Kaman and said he was overrated lol. I told you to be patient.
