Andrew Bynum’s Block Party


Were it not for a certain other hoops team in Los Angeles mounting an amazing comeback in Memphis then odds are Andrew Bynum’s blockbuster playoff triple-double would be the talk of the town. Well, since L.A. is and always will be Lakerland Bynum’s block fest is still going to get plenty of love on sports talk radio.

No doubt the Denver Nuggets woke up this morning with a nasty hangover after being the VIP guests of Bynum’s block party. Why Ty Lawson thought he could go at two seven footers with an underhanded layup attempt is as baffling as why Denver kept daring Drew to do his duty.

So before we turn the page and move on to Game 2 of this best of seven series with Denver, let’s quickly flashback and relive Bynum’s 10 blocks in all their playoff glory.
