Andrew Bynum, the 24-year-old center out of New Jersey, has had a very up-and-down career since the Lakers selected him with the 10th overall pick, straight out of high school, in the 2005 draft.

With this selection, Bynum became the youngest player ever drafted by an NBA team.

While it was known that his offensive skills were still raw, Bynum’s defense and rebounding were already at a very high level. The Lakers have used many specialty big-men coaches, most notably Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, to try and help turn Bynum’s immense potential into production on the offensive end.

So far this season, Bynum’s hard work has paid off, as he is averaging 16.3 ppg and 12.8 rpg. The rest of the league has definitely taken notice of Bynum’s improvements, as he was selected to start in his first All-Star Game.

Here is what I believe is in store for the future of NBA All-Star Andrew Bynum.
