10:12 AM ET 01.08 | Now we know who forged Andrew Bynum into the player he has become. Lakers fans can send thank-yous to Kwame Brown. That's what Brown implied Friday after the Lakers beat Golden State. First, some reality. "He's a grown man now," Brown said of his former Lakers teammate. "He's grown into his body well. He's a lot more physical than when he first came in." Then came the fantasy. "That was my young fella," Brown said. "I taught him everything he knows."

Too bad it didn't work the other way around, Bynum should have taught Kwame how to play the game!!!!

QUOTE(#4):

if kwame had started out his career w/out Jordan, he wouldve been fine. To play for the number 1 basketball player of all time was just too much pressure. If you were to talk to jordan today, he probably wishes he had done things differently.... Especially not pick on the guy in public.... That would destroy anyone.

To play for one of the "dumbest owner" of all time is what the problem was!!! Jordan being one of the greatest player had nothing to do with the way Kwame Brown played are is playing at the present time.

I'm sure Jordan learned his lesson outside of basketball w/ Kwame as well....

LOL, I doubt very much that Jordan has learned anything about being an owner!!!

dude, he messed w/ the psychologically..... Jordan said a lot, behind closed doors and in the open. No one wouldve prospered under those circumstances.... Jordan still has a lot to learn....

Okay, I can agree with that.

At Least You Can Say You Were A Laker, Bro.

yea, im sure he learned everything not to do from brown. As for his development, I believe a certain kareem abdul-jabbar is his big mans coach and has been for years. Brown may have shown him how NOT to play center, but we all know kareem was instrumental in his development. Brown, get over yourself.

Very good point, Kareem was the "main man" in his development!!!
