Why do you think Bynum is shooting 58%? He scores around the rim and gets to the line, you don't run many plays for him. Gasol on the other hand gets his shots and is their second option offensively. But that team lacks offensive depth at the 1-2-3 spots. You give Gasol a couple more shots and take it away from Kobe are they any better then 35-20? Maybe Kobe needs to give it to Metta World Peace more. Lol
Best case scenario going into the season for the Lakers was getting 3rd place in the western conference......where are they right now.....3rd place.
