Kobe Lists Bynum As 2nd Option, Not Gasol
The scoring pecking order is no longer former MVP Kobe Bryant, followed by former All-Star Pau Gasol, followed by up-and-comer Andrew Bynum.
Now it’s Kobe, then Bynum, then Gasol.
“It seems like it’s changed a little bit,” Bryant said after the Lakers’ 97-90 win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday. “Andrew is thirsty to score and he can score. He has more of a scorer’s mentality [than Gasol], so we’ll take advantage of that.”
“We will be going into him a lot,” Bryant said. “He’s kind of taking over that role.”
