Breaking Down the Differences Between Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum
Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

On paper, the Los Angeles Lakers this summer replaced the second-best center in the NBA, Andrew Bynum, with the best center in the NBA, Dwight Howard.  

Bynum might have a 2-0 lead over Howard in terms of NBA championships, but Howard holds the 3-0 advantage over Bynum with Defensive Player of the Year awards. 

After Shaquille O'Neal retired in 2011, Howard and Bynum were the two true centers most likely to take up O'Neal's throne as the NBA's most dominant big man. 

To this point, Howard holds the advantage over Bynum, but not by as much as one might think. Could Bynum overtake Howard in the next few years? It's not out of the question. 

Let's take a look at the respective strengths and weaknesses of both Bynum and Howard, to get a sense of how the Lakers must change this upcoming season.
