The first weekend of  the NBA playoffs is in the books, and here’s what we know: the Bulls are in big trouble after losing Derrick Rose, there were a few headscratching results(Knicks and Grizzlies?!), and Andrew Bynum is motivated on the defensive end. In yesterday’s Game 1 against the Denver Nuggets, Bynum recorded the first playoff triple double for the Lakers since Magic Johnson in the early 90’s.  Amazingly enough, he did it wil 10 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 blocks! Man, of Bynum could learn to just pass the ball, he may have made history! But I digress. Check out the impressive video of Bynum’s block party here.

 

Bynum is arguably the key to the Lakers’s success in the playoffs this year. The young center needs to be a dominant force down low, while also keeping his cool when things aren’t going to Lakers way. I think they will have little trouble with the Nuggets, but the winner of the Thunder Mavs series will be a much different story.

What did you think of Bynum’s triple double? Let us know in the comments!
