The Bynum thing is intriguing. On one hand, Bynum is gonna demand a max deal for his next contract, and I'm not sure his health risk/inconsistency warrants such an investment, so I get trying to get a guy like Howard in return who is a much safer option as a max type player. However, I really don't like either guy's attitude and don't really know if either player combined with our current squad is good enough to get us over the hump to championship contender (especially with an aging Kobe). At the very least, LA is a destination so even if we were to lose Howard after the year, rebuilding isn't such a monumental task. In fact, I'd rather rebuild and save giving a guy a max deal until after Kobe retires and we have a solid foundation of a squad.
The NBA is just losing appeal for me though. The money being thrown around is absurd and is really hurting the future for fair deals.
