Do you think Andrew Bynum is the key to the Lakers' success?
Chris Sanchez (@DodgerDawg77): Of course he is. Look at the Lakers' history of big men: Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O'Neal. The starting 7-foot center has always been crucial to Lakers' championship runs.
Christian Lavallee: I think he is way too injury-prone to be reliable down the stretch. After only six seasons his knees are already on the way out. I call it the T-Mac syndrome.
V. Outlaw Jr. (@DoodieOutlaw): The #Lakers need consistent productivity from their bench players more than they need Bynum. If Bynum is healthy, he is a force, but bench play is key.
Randy Williams: If he is the key to the Lakers' success, then they're in big trouble. Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol play a much bigger role in the Lakers' success than Bynum ever will.
Coop DeVille (@CoopLFL360): Kobe will always be the key to the #Lakers' success. If he has an off-night, they aren't going anywhere. Bynum? They can win without him.
