Whether obvious or not, this trade greatly benefits Bynum himself.
In Philadelphia, he will no longer be a third option. Considering he averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game as a third option last season with the Lakers, imagine what he can do as the primary offensive guy.
He's playing with young guys who like to run the floor and is next to solid complementary pieces down low. The ceiling of potential is endless for him.
It's just scary.
You tell me, who is going to stop this man? Brook Lopez? Tyson Chandler? Roy Hibbert? With Dwight Howard out of the Eastern Conference, Bynum is hands down the most dominant force in the East.
At just 24 years of age and already having a few years of experience and learning under his belt as an alternate option, it's time for a new step in his career. Consequently so, Bynum has walked into the perfect environment at the perfect time.
