Lakers News, Rumors, and Recap: Bynum Leads Kobe-less Lakers

Andrew Bynum keeps bringing the heat and his playing got him the Western Conference Player of the Week title today. Judged by his  playing over the last seven games, Bynum put up some pretty good numbers, averaging 21.8 points, 16.8 rebounds & 1.5 blocks. The past four games, all victories, have been without Kobe Bryant, adding to the value of this title.
