    Default Jonas Vs Bynum four times a year!

    With Howard being traded to LA, Bynum is now in Philly. Guess Jonas is going to have get used to playing with the big boys soon and often won't he?

    4 games versus Howard in Orlando or Brooklyn versus 4 games versus Bynum in Philly?


    I think this has worked out well.

    Isn't there more or something due to the same division?

    I'm probably wrong...

    It could be. I think it's something like you play 6 non-division teams 4 times, and 4 of them 3 times....It appears this year we play Orlando 4 times...but for example, only 3 games against Miami (phew!!) I was super bored, so I checked, the other teams are Milwaukee, Atlanta and Chicago

    Lets see what a cold winter in Philly does to Bynum's already wanky knee's. Not to mention Jonas beating him down the floor everytime on the fast break.

    So true, Jonas and Amir will drain other teams C's

    I am really curious to see how Bynum responds to being the main guy on a team.

    I like your optimism, but I seriously doubt that will be the case. JV will need time to acclimate himself to the NBA game and we'll likely see Gray getting playing time with the starters, when JV is overmatched and/or in foul trouble. As for Amir, he was abused by legit C's last season, so I highly doubt we'll see him playing much C, unless on the 2nd unit, but even then I worry. I hope you're right though, I really do!

    I think he meant drain other team C's in the sense of tiring them out sprinting the floor. I can hear Casey screaming on the sideline, "Go! Go! Go!" on every defensive rebound.

    Yeah that's what I meant. I'm aware of their weaknesses, but they'll outrun plenty of bigs nonetheless

    That's definitely true. JV, Amir and Davis all hustle up and down the court. Only Gray is the traditional "lumbering" C we have.

    My guess is that he folds under the pressure, then try to sign with Miami or New York next season if it's at all possible. I fucking hate Bynum, now I can hate him a little extra this year. That pussy move in the '11 playoffs on Dallas was inexcusable. I wanna see Jonas dominate him.

    I feel the exact same way, but that doesn't take away that he is a very solid player.

    Without a great team around him, someone that can constantly take away the extra defender is not there... This might make or break him as a player.
