Lamar Odom has been playing exceptional basketball for the Lakers, and he has been putting up all-star numbers in the first five games of the season. Odom was placed in the starting five, to replace the injured Andrew Bynum. Odom and Bynum are two completely different players, and each player brings something else to the team. As news broke out that Bynum is making a fast recovery on his injury, the question rises. When Andrew Bynum is back on the court who should start for the Lakers, him or Lamar Odom.
