Andrew Bynum Ready For L.A./Boston Finals

Someone should tell Bynum that neither Conference Finals series is over yet. As the L.A. Times tells it: “L.A. fans on Wednesday fast-forwarded to a meeting in the Finals with a certain green-and-white-clad nemesis, chanting ‘We want Boston!’ near the end of Game 2 at Staples Center against the Suns. Boston moved one step closer Saturday night, beating Orlando, 94-71, to take a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. And, a few hours earlier, Lakers center Andrew Bynum edged forward, although, in fairness, he was asked about the possibility of facing the Celtics, not volunteering to speculate. ’It’s going to be amazing playing against those guys again,’ Bynum said after practice at the team’s training facility in El Segundo. ‘Because we lost [in 2008], we’re going to have a lot of fuel and a lot of ammo. They’re definitely a great team. They have great veterans on their squad. . . . The first step is closing out Game 3, and then after that, we’ll be focusing.’ Actually, Game 4 would still be required.”

    not the mentality jackson and kobe probably want to see from bynum. and perkins and sheed will both probably bully him to an extent.

  • Robb

    wow The Promise and ggdg are equally stupid.

    What’s he mean, “playing against those guys again”? He musta forgot he missed the ’08 finals. On a side note, I just read he attends college in the summers. I didn’t know that. Good for him.

  • scompson

    yea kendrik perkins is gonna bully bynum around until his knee shatters into pieces.

    Bynum’s a very lucky fan. He won that contest where the prize was to get courtside Finals seats with 2 or 3 minutes of playing time guaranteed.

  • Bo

    He need to go back to high school nd get drafted again, then get what he deserve.

  • Izzy

    So everyone’s peachy to write the Suns off then? Even after they just won game 3 by 9pts? And it wasn’t even their best playoff performance as a team…come on guys we’re talking about the suns who swept the spurs!!! yes Suns are the underdogs but I say Bynum is an idiot for assuming the series is already won.

  • kriz

    the suns looking like absolute dog sh*t in games 1 & 2 is why everyone is writing them off. winning 4/5 against LA seems near impossible. i think they have a decent chance to win all the games at home. if they can just somehow pull a miracle and steal one on the road…

  • topo

    i don’t know about getting “bullied” this ain’t 07

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Yeah Bynum, we’re ready for your 2pts, 2rebounds and 8 minutes of playing time. Git.

  • Yesse

    He should worry about beating Phoenix first.

  • b2bmvpnashty

    Hey I didnt know that the lakers moved on???? Didnt the suns just beat them tonight???? Typical arrogance from the lakers organization. Boston is a lock, not La. come on.

  • http://www.yamahyouth.com Gerwin

    Yep, 2-1 now. Go SUNS!

  • KoBynum716

    anyone who thinks boston has a chance of beating LA is sadly going to be disappointed

  • vtrobot

    @ Robb: I’m also as stupid as those two. @ KoBynum716: The don’t have a chance? No chance? 0%? I think both teams have a decent chance. Funny fanboys.

  • BostonBaller

    I think Bynum is a pretty good center and really tough down low. He is more polished offensively than Perk but I’d take Perk over him every time.

    I’ve still got my breathe held for that Magic/Suns face-off so don’t look at me…?

    Perk is NOT a good center. He’s only mentioned because KG makes his job so much easier. Celtics are playing at their full potential of that team, which is what I expected from the beginning of the season. But the lakers are too strong for them this year. There is absolutely no way Celtics are gonna take more than 1 game anyway. You’ll all see. Just how you all thought LeBronze was the “best player ever” who can’t even get past the 2nd round, y’all are just writing off the lakers bc Bynums injury prone. Too bad Gasol is LEVELS better than KG and Perk combined, and Kobe is the greatest player to ever live. Just watch greatness at its best…

    Bynum’s only ready for an L.A./Boston Finals now? The Beijing NBA store has been ready for at least one month. They already had all their Boston and L.A. gear displayed prominently around the shop. Cleveland? Hardly anything. Orlando? Nada. By the way, in case you’re wondering, Celtics gear slightly outnumbers Lakers stuff. Conspiracy theorists (and I) might say that everything already has been decided.
