Looking at the #s Bynum and Gasol are pretty equal. Bynum puts up 17PPG, 12RPG, 2BPG, and 1APG. While Gasol puts up 17PPG, 10RPG, 1BPG, and 3APG.
Gasol also gets fewer turnovers, more steals, and doesn't shoot 500 from the charity stripe.
Me too. I dont know what it is, Bynum just doesnt do it for me. Would take Nene, M Gasol, even Noah over him.
Off quote, but what the hell is with this Sixers team? Cant understand what they are good. Watched them against the Heat and was impressed. Also, the referee favoritism of towards the Heat is a joke. Just start the game 10-0 why dont they.
76ers have benefited from a schedule that had them playing a lot of weak teams to start the season and playing more games at home rather than away. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see them regress towards the mean as the season drags on.

While I haven't watched much of the 76ers this season, Doug Collins has traditionally been an awful coach. The only coach that was wasted more talent over the course of their career is Isiah Thomas.
