Andrew Bynum’s Most Memorable Lakers Moments, Pt. II

This is Pt. II of my list of top-10 memories of Andrew Bynum’s time with the Lakers. If you missed Pt. I, click here.

Counting down from five-to-one:

5. The time he grabbed 30 rebounds against Tim Duncan and the Spurs (4/11/12)

One of three memories on the list from this past season. Bynum became the first Laker to grab 30 rebounds in a game since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did it in 1978. The Spurs as a team had 33 rebounds. Kobe missed the game with a shin injury. It was like watching the NBA’s version of Hungry, Hungry, Hippo. As incredible as it was, the game might have done more for San Antonio. It would be the last they’d lose between April 12 and May 31 — a stretch of 20 straight wins. But that shouldn’t take anything away from Bynum’s amazing night or this hilarious postgame interview featuring another accidental Bynum curse:
