Kobe: Bynum is Lakers’ No. 2 Scoring Option

by January 07, 2012

Andrew Bynum has a ways to go before becoming a bona fide second scoring option to Kobe, but the Mamba thinks the Lakers will be going to Bynum often this season. Via ESPN: “The scoring pecking order is no longer former MVP Kobe Bryant, followed by former All-Star Pau Gasol, followed by up-and-comer Andrew Bynum. Now it’s Kobe, then Bynum, then Gasol. ‘It seems like it’s changed a little bit,’ Bryant said after the Lakers’ 97-90 win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday. ‘Andrew is thirsty to score and he can score. He has more of a scorer’s mentality [than Gasol], so we’ll take advantage of that.'”
