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

4. Bynum dunks on Kevin Garnett (1/31/10)

The phrase “pick on someone your own size” was invented for guys like Kevin Garnett. YouTube is filled with clips of Garnett bullying the likes of José Calderon, Jerryd Bayless, and Marco Belinelli but rarely has he stepped to a non-European 7-footer. So it’s always great to see when guys like LaMarcus Aldridge or Lamar Odom give it right back. Considering Garnett’s behavior in the closing minutes of the Celtics Game 6 clincher against the Lakers in 2008, it was great to see Bynum — who missed that series due to injury — humble Garnett when he dunked on him. The Lakers would go on to beat Garnett and the Celtics in the NBA Finals five months later.
