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

3. The playoff triple-double against Denver (4/29/12)

The other item on the list from the 2011-12 season. Bynum recorded the Lakers first playoff triple-double in 21 years and he did it with 10 blocks. Even though Bynum’s mouth would get the Lakers in trouble later in the series, he dominated Game 1 on the defensive end. It was as impressive of a defensive performance as I’ve seen from any Laker in my 30 years as a fan. Even though most people will only remember this series for the triple-double and Bynum’s quote about close-out games being easy, make sure you remind them that in that pivotal Game 7 Bynum played 43 minutes scoring 16 points, pulling down 18 rebounds, and blocking six shots.
