11:56 AM ET 10.23 | Dwight Howard recently took the court for the first time as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. It didn't take long for the differences between his game and that of former Laker center Andrew Bynum to show themselves. Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times explains: "Dwight Howard has instincts that his predecessor has rarely shown, scoring five times off alley-oop passes and teammates' missed shots in an exhibition game against Sacramento. Unlike Bynum, Howard's not a guy who needs the ball in the post, though he showed a left-handed hook shot against the Kings."

Stop the comparison. Just move forward and just worry what's ahead of you. When it's said and done then maybe yo can compare the 2. As of now they have some goals to meet. It's like comparing the ex-GF to the new GF. Just move on and make your own legacy...

Exactly. Like his game or not, Bynum still has two rings. He was a vital part of their win over the Celtics, even if it came while he played on 1 leg.

Screw the differences, look at similarities:

1. Master whiners
2. Lack of heart
3. Lack of maturity (maybe because of lack of college for both)
4. Both need Kobe to win a ring :-)

Yeah but the old GF never did THAT and the new GF does! Woo! Hoo!
