Andrew Bynum has been playing like an animal as of late, and he needs to continue this play in the playoffs for the Lakers.
In his last seven games, Bynum has averaged 23 points and 14 rebounds per game. I know Kobe Bryant has been out so Bynum has been getting more looks.
However, Bynum needs to continue to play with this confidence and dominance when Kobe returns for the playoffs if the Lakers plan on making another championship run.
If Bynum is able to put up 20 points and 15 rebounds throughout the playoffs, then there is a very high chance that the Lakers will win the West. They are the only team that has two dominant 7-footers and arguably the best player in the game in Kobe.
Without Bynum, the Lakers are going to struggle. Kobe cannot carry this team by himself on the offensive end. Bynum and his twin tower, Pau Gasol, are going to have to be legit scoring threats to take all the attention off of Kobe.
Bynum is on the verge of becoming the best center in the NBA, and it would provide the Lakers with another Kobe-Shaq like duo.
