Remember when Andrew Bynum was thought to be near Dwight Howard level? Things haven’t quite been as sterling for the former Los Angeles Laker over the past few seasons, however, as he has been on three different teams -- if you count the Philadelphia 76ers-- and has been largely ineffective when he’s on the court. It’s time to see Bynum for what he really is, a lazy player who is never going to live up to his potential.
