Bynum Turning Heads

Will Bynum was one of my favorite ACC players the last couple of years. He’s just an offensive terror. He’s short, but strong, quick and tenacious. I honestly think that he was the hardest player in the league to keep from getting to the rim – including Chris Paul and Raymond Felton. (On top of that, I think he might have been the player I’d least like to get in a fight with. Have you seen his guns?)
Bynum’s problem, in my view, is that he is a bit too aggressive as a point guard. He doesn’t get his teammates involved much and since he’s so dynamic with the ball, everyone else just stands and watches. When he’s got it going (like in the NCAA tourney in 2004), that works just fine, but if he’s not hitting, the whole team suffers.
All that said, he has a great NBA game. He can be an energy and offense guy off the bench. A modern Vinnie “Microwave” Johnson.
Gregg Doyel says that NBA folks are starting to agree with me. Evidently Bynum, a late addition to the Chicago camp, is tearing it up.
Doyel also has some updates on ACC players Eric Williams (will likely return to Wake Forest) and Jawad Williams (not looking good).
