Andrew Bynum says he’s always ignored trade talk
Mannix asked if he was the best big man in the game, as Shaq said the other day. Bynum said he was one of them, but wouldn’t go No. 1.
Mannix asked about the trade talk floating around. “I don’t ever read the paper,” Bynum said. “Nothing [good] can come from that. As far as trade rumors, I’ve been involved in every one of them since my rookie year.”
Mannix said that he thinks the Lakers are capable of winning the way they are right now. “We’ve had opportunities to win these games,” Bynum said. He thinks they need to close and play defense consistently and they’ll be good.
Bynum also talked about how much Kobe Bryant helps him. He said when Kobe is double-teamed, it really frees him up. And Kobe talks to him about being aggressive.
