During the NBA Finals, a lot was said about the absence of Andrew Bynum. But really, how big of a factor is Bynum?
Well, with a healthy Andrew Bynum, the Los Angeles Lakers have one of the best records in the league, sitting at 35-8.
And last week, the 21 year old had a career high 42 points in a 108-97 win over inner city rival LA Clippers. Along with the 42 points, Bynum finished with 15 boards, 3 blocks in 36 minutes.
For the week, Bynum averaged 23.5 points, 11.5 rebounds in just over 29 minutes a game.
The Lakers went 4-0 with wins over the Cavs, Clippers, Wiz and Spurs.
