First of all, Bynum has been awesome in the 2nd half of the season and playoffs. Hes a difference maker, he has a huge impact on the game on both sides of the ball. Hes 1000x the player Bargs
is. Would I trade Bargs
for him? Fuck yes. If Bynum stays healthy hes a potential 18+11+3 center.
That play really bothers me. I can almost understand it when the game really matters, and you're trying to defend your paint. At that point in the game, it's nothing but a classless cheap-shot.
If you run in and throw all of your weight, when you're a 300+ pound guy, in to a player whos going full speed, its not ok at any point. Even if it was a smaller player that did it. And to top it off, as I posted, Bynum has done it at least twice before. Its probably the dirtiest play in basketball in throwing your momentum in to a player who is full steam ahead and in mid air outside of punching a guy. Bynum needs to be punished for 10+ games for it.
PS dont suspensions usually get handed down the day after? No word on anything today
