I'm sure will point to the suspension of Wade being a major contributor for the Pistons getting the win, but regardless, this is a win that we've been waiting for!

I know I'm sure going to enjoy this one!

64-20 bench points advantage! Charlie V and Mr Bynum really stepped up.

It was sure a thing of beauty! Bynum could not be stopped. It's great that we finally have a functioning Charlie V again.

This team has a had some close ones vs CHI, OKC, and ATL and were not able to close the end of those games, so it sure feels good to finally get one, especially vs the defending champions.

I've always thought Bynum could by a solid 3rd guard on a contending team. He's a gritty player who always gives a crap.

Absolutely. Definitely was glad to have him tonight because he was nearly unstoppable.

He is but I wouldn't put him on that level. Bynum has one mode - score the ball. As a distributor he often has blinders on, unless the "flashy" play is an option - in which case he'll make a low percentage pass. Some will point to his 20 assist game some years back as proof that he can distribute the ball and I'll agree completely - he certainly can, but he chooses to not do so. And he doesn't have the size to compensate on defense (the Detroit television guys say he generally calls himself 5'11), he gets abused defensively by almost everyone it seems.

He deserves to be on almost any roster as the fourth regular guard. He can come in and provide a big scoring boost when he's on, but he's really not a shooter even though he plays like he is. He was recently 1/11 over 15 games. Suddenly he's 8/11 over his last 3 games. He's a change of pace lil attacking fireplug. But he isn't a third guard on a top team unless that team is stacked everywhere else.


None of that serves to insult anything he's done over his last couple of games. Not at all. L.Frank decided to give him a shot and some minutes and he has absolutely answered the call. He's been fantastic and I hope he stays hot as long as possible - he's a significant difference maker on the rare occasions he plays like this.
